the Right Price for
the only known
photograph of the Atomic Fish in the wild, what's it worth to
I got a mer
and an atomic fish...I use the atomic fish when
it's all men and the mer as a whatisit? for
dings mentioned from $0.25 to $5.00 for various
sideshow acts. Is there a consensus as to
the right price for a single'o?
It's hard to know
what the right price would be; I think that would vary
with location. In New York City or San Francisco, a
quarter is a joke.
In Maine, people
think hard about whether they want to spend a whole
quarter all at once.
Doug Higley has some
great ideas about pricing in his grind show notes.
The other thing to
look at is whether there are any other attractions, and
what are they charging. Maybe if the family doesn't want
to see the World's Largest Wombat across the midway at
$3, they will look at your Atomic Fish for $1.50. Of
course, you have a kid's price, and for the next few
minutes, everyone's a kid again!
Here in Maine, I have
charged $2 for the Feejee Mermaid show, $1 for kids. At
a flea market, I let people talk me down to $1 if it
seems important to them. People at flea markets love
that feeling of victory at landing a bargain! Of course,
we have souvenir mermaid cards and other items for sale,
and once they have a good time at the show, they wind up
buying other things...
