I had been thinking of buying postcards from someone so I decided to buy from her. I had been offered ten for $1 about a dozen times already, so I said "10 for a dollar". She said two dollars. I laughed and said no, so she sold them for a dollar. There was another girl selling bracelets, three for a dollar, so I was going to buy some for the girls. At this point other kids realized that someone was buying something, and it was like blood in the water. I was surrounded by a dozen or so kids, all yelling out to get my attention. I bought some bracelets and then headed for the car.
I understand the strategy of trying to make the sale when you have a "live" customer, but the problem is that it was too much. I was thinking of buying a t-shirt and maybe even some more bracelets, but there too many kids shoving things towards me.
