Anyone else highly allergic to something they sell?
« on: March 20, 2008, 11:32:30 PM »
I am devastatingly allergic to perfume. Any kind of fragrance will do my in. I take strong medication just to leave my home – sweet irony, it’s one product I sell well. 

I have a deal with most of my friends “you tell me what you want for perfume and I will get it for you wholesale.”
It’s the best research promotion I’ve ever come up with. They are all between 21 and 35 so if I don’t make a profit on one bottle who cares, they know what’s hot. For some reason unknown they feel the need to bring me those stupid scent laden sample cards – I am sitting here with my eye the size of melons hyped up on Benadryl seeing spots itching like mad with a rash on my ass. My “friend” passed my one of those “cards” while we were in the mall today "I have to have this!" she said. I stuck it in the back pocket of my jeans, the card wasn’t even wet! I have a 1” X 3” red patch of rash on one butt cheek from a reaction I am having to this stupid Hanae Mori! I hate perfume!

There are many things I can't/won't sell for reasons like that. Maybe I'm missing a great opportunity to make money, but if it gives me awful headaches and otherwise negatively impacts my well-being, it's not worth it when there are so many other product lines out there.

I have asthma and pretty severe allergies. I almost never make it out of the fabric store without having an attack. I don't think I am really allergic to the fabrics I use for my quilt kits, but there are a lot of chemicals and fragrances in the stores I shop in that seem to bother me. I use over the counter Claritin or Zyrtec and take two a day every day.

OMG I was wondering what you were going to add to this thread, Sharky. ROFL I thought you might possibly be allergic to what you sell. :0240

Same here Jeri. <laughing>

Oh I'm so sorry that you're that sensitive to perfumes. When I walk by persons that have bathed in the scent, I end up sneezing like crazy and have to take a Sudafed.

I feel for ya.

That would KILL me! I hate cats - but only because they'd kill me.


Luckily I don't come in contact with what I sell to often, its not like I hold a ton of inventory in my home. I'm just afraid the research may do me in - lol! A sales woman in JC Pennys squirted me in the face about a month ago while she was spritzing another customer. I was already in a bad mood so that just set me off. Needless to say she didn't make that sale after I started choking and gasping. The manager wanted to call 911.

Well as you azll probably know with all that Vee Jay Jay floating around in the mags I sell there is probably an equal amount of peckers and I am highly allergic to them.
