Vendor: Hello, Madam, What can I do for you today?
Customer: Could you show me that plate. It’s quite lovely. Where was it made?
Vendor: Oh, I see you have excellent taste. Yes, that one is beautiful, isn’t it? It’s local pottery. I think it was painted here by a local artist.
Customer: It’s really something … do you have anything else by this artist?
Vendor: Well, I’m not really sure who exactly painted which pieces of pottery, but here are some similar pieces.
Customer: No, they’re really not the same. You see, I collect traditional Scottish pottery and I’m particularly interested in this style.
Vendor: Well, how about these two plates over here? I had them brought in just this morning. They were also made using traditional hand painting techniques.
Customer: Yes, those are quite nice. What about the prices?
Vendor: Obviously, it depends on what you would like to buy. The plate that you were first looking at costs £50.
Customer: £50! That’s quite expensive. I can’t afford that.
Vendor: Remember, these are hand painted pieces of pottery, that kind of handicraft work doesn’t come cheaply.
Customer: Yes, I understand that. But I really think that £50 is just too much.
Vendor: Listen, I can see that you are in love with that plate. Let’s just make it £45 if you take more than one plate. I’d really like you to take these plates home with you.
Customer: How about £35? I really can’t go any higher than that.
Vendor: I really can’t, I mean that would be selling at cost.
Customer: Well, I would like to buy these three plates and £5 is absolutely the most I can add. Vendor: All right. I really shouldn’t. The artist is going to have me put out of business for selling his wares at such low prices.
Customer: Come, come. Let’s not exaggerate. I know the real price of these plates.
Vendor: You’re a clever one, aren’t you?
Customer: I’m just someone who pays close attention to what I spend. I never buy overpriced items.
Vendor: There’s no shame in that. Here you are.
Customer: Thank you very much. Good luck!
Vendor: Thank you, have a pleasant day.
