We are seeing more significant price increases coming through in this season’s new stock. Items that stand out are the artificial flowers, pine cones and stub wire. If you are selling your wreaths and grave pots then set your prices accordingly or adjust your designs as each decoration is becoming an expensive consideration. The only good thing to come out of it is that it does make our home grown natural decorations even more attractive.
I have had to increase the website prices of new stock as received but where we have plenty of existing stock I have put this on ‘sale’. For example, 9″ 19g stub wire is at the new price but there are big savings to be had if you can use thicker 18g or the thinner 20g or 22g.
