All I can add is to suggest that you tailor your products to actual demand. Years ago, while driving the wife around on a shopping trip, I found a woodworker’s shop and showroom. He had magnificent furniture, beautifully made, and very expensive. We chatted for a while about woodworking. A year or so later, I happened to be in that same area, so I visited the shop again. What he had for sale was far different this time. He had what I’ll call ‘rustic’ furniture, with tables made from reclaimed doors, and everything appeared to be distressed – dents, discolorations, mismatched paint, and such as that. Naturally, I asked him why he had changed to this type of production. He said that people were buying the rustic stuff eagerly, but had rarely bought the ‘good stuff’ that he had been making.
