This is an interesting project idea! Here is a Science Buddies project on how being able to touch a product affects a person's willingness to buy it: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p045.shtml
You might be able to modify that project to fit your idea.
You might also be able to answer your question using a well-crafted survey that asks people about their buying habits. Here is some information about how to conduct a survey-based project: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/blog/2010 ... eysays.php
Here are tips for designing an effective survey: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... rvey.shtml
I hope this helps you get started! Please post again (in this same thread) if you have more questions.
