TIP: Many sales people have names to encourage conversation "Mr Cheap As Chips", "Black Chocolate", "Winston Churchill", etc. Have fun and make up your own names but make sure you remember it if you want to go back to someone later.
TIP: If you find a design you like but it isn't exactly what you were after in terms of carvings, ask if they can make one to your specifications. The time frame may depend on what it is, who is carving it, when you can come back, etc and this may influence the price but all you can do is ask. They haven't made it yet so there's no harm in asking. If you do order something, make sure you pay for it at the arranged price though (or even include a tip) because you don't want to leave them out of pocket for something you asked for.
