now what do i do?

I've been working on "Bed Bath & Beyond" as you might have read a few posts back and I finally got a response.  As you can guess from my title its a response that stumped me.  It has the word "unfortunately" in it too.......and i REALLY HATE that word.  Anything that starts with "unfortunately" deserves a deep breath and some "self motivation" before proceeding with the information. 
Anyways, "she" the buyer said that they have a collection set up of cutting boards in their assortment at "Bed Bath & Beyond" and they are not in need of mine, but if i have something new and interesting she would love to see it.  (I did send her something "new and interesting" but nevermind).
So I thought about it, and of course i took her up on it!!  Mr. Know-it-All said, "she has no idea how dangerous it is for her to give me her contact information because i am a pest", but i don't care what he says. 
Anyways, I looked through the assortment at "Bed Bath & Beyond" and i noticed that my walnut board might fit well with their other boards.......
so........i emailed again with the pictures, and how i investigated their assortment, and how my board would be wonderful for "Bed Bath & Beyond."
 
Well, Its a No Go.  Done.  Stumped.  What to do next? 
 
I thought i might tell her that they need to get rid of their entire assortment and just stick with Weber Company boards, but i don't think that will go over well........
 
Any suggestions????

  1. I am assuming you've told her what your unique selling point is, so... Offer to take her to lunch and show her the boards? Get one from their store so you can show her the difference at said lunch.

  2. Try showing her the beautiful Chalkboards that you have right now!
