Is the customer always right?

I made some more of these for our Mayday Craft Fair:

I displayed a few on my table. A customer came over and looked at them. And looked at them. And looked at them. I asked her "did she want a particular colour?". She said "she would know it when she saw it". I got out the whole box for her to look through. She said "if she really knew which one she wanted, she would buy one, but she didn't", and off she went. Later she came back again, and had the whole box out once more, but still couldn't make up her mind. Then she came back a third time and chose one. I took her money, gave her change, put the pindoll in a cellophane bag and handed it to her. She put it in her bag.

Then she said "When I get home, I shall change that button for another. It is not in proportion to the rest. Then it will be much better".

Me thinks she is going to copy it and had to buy one because she couldn't remember exactly what you did. Sadly typical. It has happened to me at shows:) They are very cute. How could she not buy them all?
