How much to CHARGE for cookie bouquets? For a Bridal shower - Page 2

post #16 of 26
What if you tell her you'll charge less if she gives you back the extra $70 you paid for the perm? I mean, she wouldn't have given you a perm for less than 10 bucks right?? That's all they cost!! Have her agree to give you another perm for $2 if you buy the perm kit LOL

...took the words right out of my mouth Tina! Totally agree there.
Sad, it sounds like my something my sister would do as well.

You guys are crackin' me up icon_biggrin.gif She charged you 75 bucks for a perm, and now she wants the family discount? Oh no. I agree with everyone else. You're time is worth something, and if she doesn't think so I'd tell her to go elsewhere. My guess is she knows your work is good and that she wouldn't get it from anyone else at that price.

OR, you could do them for free and tell her it's her wedding gift icon_biggrin.gif

That's exactly what i would do and have done in the past. Whenever i know i'm not going to get the money i deserve for my cookies, i offer to do them as a gift. This is only for close family and friends, whom i'd normally go out and buy a gift for whatever occasion it is. The best thing is that since they're not paying for the cookies, i get to do them on my terms, however and how many i choose to do.

Ok I told my sister I would do them for a $1.00 a piece, now she is really being demanding" I want I want I want" Is all I hear from her. Ummm Your paying me a dollar.....thats a pretty good deal. I told her all packaging materials would be extra and she was like no that should be included with the cookies. I said nope its not and if you look around everyone else charges for that to. Finally with a sarcastic attitude she said" fine I'll buy all th packaging" icon_lol.gif so theres the update.

cakegirl, dont forget to tell her that she also has to help package them. That takes me as long as decorating the flaming things sometimes.

goodluck, keep us informed.... I love this forum thanks gals

You need to direct her sorry a$$ to the nearest Cookies by Design (I did a search ... there are five within a drive that is less than 2 hours from you)

This crummy little 7 cookie bouquet is $54.99 ...... $7.85 PER COOKIE!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.cookiesbydesign.com/gift-baskets/just-because-gifts/smiling-face-daisies

THEN let her decide if YOUR price is too high! icon_twisted.gif
