    If you dont want to buy dont bargain -it is rude. 75% is far too high to start at anyway. 40% is more realistic for clothes etc. When you agree you pay and take the product we are all better off then.

    Hi, I'm wondering whether you still remember the name or the location of the shop that you bought 6 bags from. :) Thanks. ~ML
