Oh, I think your post is very interesting, sometimes even seeing how people frame an idea is instructive. And, it's better to have more posts than less I think.
I am just learning about business, but feel these last few weeks at the outdoor market are like retail 101. I am most struck by the competition there, out of 300 vendors, I bet 240 had jewelry of some sort. Basically, to sell, the piece had to be different, and a bargain, and even then, if the buyer got too far down the isle, there was no point in coming back.
Another thing I observed is that the long time vendors kept complaining that sales went down each year..but they always had the very same product.
On an upbeat note, I was next to a fellow selling Emu oil, and I know all about its health benifits.
