I was driving by the buyer's place in Bloomington today, so I stopped in to chat for a moment. The gentleman there wasn't in a very chatty mood. I don't know if his phone has been ringing non-stop or people are griping about the price, all I know is he wasn't in the mood for small-talk.
Anyway, he's at $575 right now, and that is back down from his high of $600 last week. One interesting thing is that he has a large dry-erase board in his shop that he updates all of his pricing on. Under the ginseng price, he has $575 and underneath he has written, \"NO EXCEPTIONS\". People must be trying to haggle him to death. That could also be causing his less than stellar mood. I'll update later as I know more.
