When you can get a custom designed rhinestone shirt on just about every corner, and many people realizing how easy it is to do them themselves, they not paying them prices around here.

Oh, I did get a pecan pie once from a customer. I told the customer how much I loved it but I really hate pecan pie. The guys in the back ate it though.
ROFL! That's awesome! I don't like pecan pie either! Around here, it seems like just about everyone and their grandmother makes bling shirts but we still can't keep up with demand!
I still get nervous quoting someone for a shirt because I'm afraid they'll think it's too high, but if I don't charge enough, it's not worth my time. I just try to keep my profit within a certain range.

Your pecan pie story reminds me that I've had SO many customers give me Starbuck's gift cards and I don't drink coffee. I have like $75 worth sitting in my drawer here. Now that school has started back up, I can give them to my girls' teachers.
