We don’t do it. What we do is ask you, the buyer, to make us an offer on your part and let us know what price you’re willing to spend. We use two price lists in our catalog (you’ll need one if you buy more than 3 different wood products). The most common of these lists are: “For Sale” and “On Indefinitely”. This last list is more helpful. Most of the time I don’t get the question about how much for what. If they send me the item and I don’t get a price we’re probably just going to price match. It’s not worth asking them to spend more than you offered.
How are you able to do all this with so few staff members? If you’re asking what the “most important” thing that made the company sustainable is I’m afraid a very good place for an answer would probably be “We have three managers and two other staff members, who have been here from the very beginning of the company, and we still manage the company today”. I know that there are companies that aren’t sustainable yet, but they have been very successful. We are not a traditional wood product company, but we believe that a small company’s success is built on many factors. We all work together as a team and that’s what makes it different.
How do you decide which products to offer for your online store? We have no idea. We’ve tried a good number of products and have just found ones we love. There are a ton of “wanted” woods for sale, but we try to only list an item that someone really needs. It’s no secret that I spend very little time shopping, and I try to find “what I need” in our catalog. We are constantly looking for new products and find these items all the time. This was one of them – we have a “wood burning cook top” and I decided I needed one. It’s an old piece of kitchen equipment, and it’s just sitting in a closet right now. I decided that if one of us (Dave) has the wood that we all need, I’ll make up a bunch of “wanted” woods and post up on eBay while we wait for them to sell.
Do you ever look at all your wood products with a set of eyes and think “Damn, we need to change these!”? No, but we do. The only “wanted” woods we are interested in are old and broken which we don’t
