Sales slow this year
Some do it for the fun and some do it for the extra income, but whatever the reason, vendors at this year’s Grand Kadooment are saying that sales were still really slow.
One leather craft vendor of JRW Sales, who wanted to remain anonymous, blamed the fact that sales are slow on the economy.
“People are not spending like they used to and we are a consumer economy. Barbados is not a productive economy, we do not make things, we buy,” the vendor said while dispatching a customer with a pair of $63 leather sandals.
“Things are very, very, very slow in comparison with last Crop Over,” he added.
