I give low cost options of MOST of my estimates, as shown on the Giving Upholstery Estimates page.. However, it's a low-cost option that I can live with. Even so, I am surprised at how many people choose the highest price, and are glad to pay it. (of course, this usually applies to high quality, special purpose, sentimental, or antique furniture.) People won't pay a lot of  they have junk furniture, unless they have a lot of sentiment attached to it.
Best Wishes,
Stephen

Big surprise last night. The customer e-mailed back and wants us to do the job. Full price. Rose wrote back and said we would love to do it, when can we pick it up. Perseverance prevails.

Interesting concept. We all have to figure out what works for us. I've found in the past when I give a low ball estimate, thinking I'll do a less than quality job, I always end up doing the higher quality job anyway. I've come to realize if my name is going to be on the piece I want to preform the absolute best job I possibly can. No mater what type of piece I start out with. I leave it up to the customer to decide if its worth the price I charge.

Just finished this pair of side chairs. Originally bought at Pier 1. I'm sure between my price and what she paid for the fabric the total cost is above the original cost of the chairs. But she now has two custom made chairs. It was her idea to cover the legs. Looks neat.


There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
