Thanks all. I ended up not being so grumpy, mostly thanks to a friend who gave me some paracetemol and my pain felt eased.

I had one woman mutter something about expensive to her friend, I smiled, said hello. She said

'my friend makes soaps and she's a lot cheaper than you' in a smug, what you going to do about that kind of way. Her friend sells for £1.80 a bar. Okay. Well, i explained, mine are nasty chemical free (so's her friends) mine are made with Olive, Palm, Coconut,Castor and Avocado oils
So are my friend's

Me: even avocado

woman: yes,

me: for £1.80 a bar

woman: oh yes. And they are beautiful.

I am glad for her sake and mine that this conversation took place after my dark mood had passed cos she really p'd me off.

In the end, I took £20, enough for an Indian takeway - super delicious, and a bottle of wine - to be consummed very soon  Grin

Or selling to her friend at cost and her friend is now chatting it up at that price.  Only an idiot someone inept at math would come up with a price like that.  Although I do see some soapers over here that sell there's at $3 a bar....  Rant

I am really glad you got through it and that you're home now big hug

hmm yummy, thats the life. I could do with an Indian takeaway now!!

People are always after something for nothing, perhaps she was selling the soap to her at "mates rates"

wow, £1.80...that's rather expensive for small guest bars? I sell mine for £1.00  :mwaha:

Don't worry, there is always someone cheaper than you, how long they last is another thing, especially if they get a 1000-bar order in and realize it's going to cost them £500 to sell it  :mwaha:
