    Default Stalls in Wellington.. What are they going for!

    With the way the economy is this year are you finding that stalls are more expensive this year or less? I am specifically looking at barns off the horse show property. What would you say is the going rate for a nice barn with some turn out and a good riding ring. I have just started looking. Do you think there will be more stalls available this year?

    If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

    I don't think it's a question of not being able to afford it, but more like being ripped off! I consider it smart shopping.

    Not directed at you personally, but I absolutely hate that phrase.

    It assumes that just because someone has money (and I don't) they will just pay any price regardless of value.

    So if you walk into Hermes and ask for the price of a handbag:
    "If you have to ask you can't afford it."

    Well, maybe somebody could easily AFFORD to spend $250,000 because they have 15 million liquid any day of the week, but they might still think that $15,000 for a Birkin bag is a little ridiculous.
