My conversation with the tradeswomen below:
“We take small items from the wholesaler on credit to sell. We only earn commissions and maybe extras from the profit of the original amount. Some days sales are poor, but it’s better than doing nothing.”
“It’s difficult to make savings from this, but I hope one day to save enough to have my own small kiosk.”
I ended up buying a whistle 🙂
I have found that once you approach people decently and engage in a conversation, within split seconds, you learn not only a bit more about them, but these little conversations make me pause and be thankful. They make me smile, laugh or sober.
