M: Hello, ma'am, What can I do for you today?
W: This is a quite lovely hand-painted plate.Where was it made?
M: Oh, (1)_____________________________________.Yes, that is beautiful, isn't it? It's the local product.I think it was painted here by a local artist.
W: It's really something... do you have anything else by this artist?
M: Well, I'm not really sure who exactly painted which pieces of plates,but here are some similar pieces.
W: No, they're really not the same.
M: Well, how about these here. I had them brought in just this morning.
W: Yes, those are quite nice. What about the prices?
M: Obviously, it depends on what you would like to buy.That plate that you were first looking at costs $50.
W: $50! That's quite dear. I can't afford that.
W: Yes, I understand that. But I really think that $50 is just too much.
M: Listen, I can see that you are in love with that plate.Let's just make it $45. I'd really like you to take that home with you.
W: How about $35. I really can't go any higher than that.
M: I really can't, I mean that would be selling at cost.
W: Well, $38 is absolutely the most I can spend.
M: All right. I really shouldn't.The artist is going to have me put out of business for selling his wares at such low prices.
W: Come, come. Let's not exaggerate.
M: You're a clever one, aren't you?
M: There's no shame in that. Here you are.
W: Thank you very much.
M: Thank you, have a pleasant day.
