Re: [Killietalk] Why is wrong to sell fish for a high enoughpriceto break even?
Bill When some one ask what does this cost?? & you can say I honestly don't
know ( your a true hobbyest.) When you can say it cost so much for this & so
much for that (your in business)The co-op i started because must club
members needed an out let for there fish.& the money i made on the listing i
would give to my wife & tell her to buy herself a new outfit . This was
payback for all the stuff she had to put up through the year----- Original
