Did you started noticing Solar Flowers which are being sold at Traffic Signals. Gone are the days when you see these underage boys & girls selling the newspapers or flowers at Traffic Signals. There is whole lot of Chinese stuff being sold at traffic signals these days. They sell Fancy Balloons, Books or toys cheaply imported from China. It is really difficult for people to predict the cost of such items specially because items keep changing so frequently.
These days you’ll find Solar Flowers being sold at Traffic Signals and where ever you have Traffic Jams in Mumbai. Where do High rise buildings in Thane have place to keep real plants. In fast paced life how many times you forget to water your bamboo plant which expects the least of love, sunshine & water from you.
So I was watching these solar flowers for many days and kept my curiosity down for one more electronic item. Finally I wanted to negotiate and I asked this traffic signal kid “How much these cost?”. He replied “Rs. 150 for each”. But then as expected he wanted to negotiate. As I know these are ‘Made In China’, I am sure they must be imported at real cheap cost. While I was in dilemma of not to take away bread/butter of this kid and not to be fool either, I offered him Rs. 100 for two. After lot of negotiation he was ready. After the deal he requested for Rs. 10 as add on. The deal was already settled and would not have moved much. I didn’t hesistate to give him another Rs. 10. I thought that will make him happy.
My Final Bargain cost Rs. 110 for two Solar Flowers. How much did you pay ? you can write in the comment box below.
