what's a fair price
« on: January 30, 2013, 06:51:33 PM »
I was out in the marsh trapping yesterday and had visitors from another area of the marsh. ( Horicon national wildlife refuge)  They saw the stakes I was using.  One of them is coming tomorrow and wants to order maybe 200 of them.  They are 3/4 x 1.1/2 basswood 8 ft long.  They like the basswood because it is so light.  We carry everything on foot or by canoe. It is my own wood do do not have to buy logs.  I made a couple hundred for a friend  in exchange for a paint job on my canoe but that was different (friend).  Want a fair price but dont want to overcharge them  because it may lead to more sales.

guy stoped by this morning.  Told him $1 each which is in line with what ROL replyed with.  He told me He can get furing strips at menards for 67 cents.  Told hin I know. ;D He then said but these are so light and he wants 9 ft long. Needs to talk it over with his partner.
