    Should I use price tags? 

    • Yes, this will allow for a smooth shopping experience for our customers. If they feel the price is too high, be open to a negotiation and settle on a price you are both happy with. 

    TOP TIP Good quality pieces will appeal to shoppers and fetch you more cash so try not to be too sentimental - your clothes will go to a good home and is helping it save the planet.  Be prepared to negotiate as it is a market. Sometimes it’s easy to think something is worth a high price tag just because we paid a lot for it, but that might have been 20 years ago and people’s perception of value has changed. If it’s a great brand, classic cut and made of beautiful fabric then fair enough.  But fast fashion does not retain it’s value, so be realistic when setting your prices. 

    How will shoppers pay? 

    • Offering online and cash payments will ensure you don’t lose a sale. Simply print your payment details on some signs to hang around your stall so shoppers can pay by PayPal or direct transfer. Have some cash handy, notes and coins, to accept cash purchases too.
