How much should I sell these for?

textilejoMarch 27, 2011

I'm making these kids on swings to sell and I have no idea what to charge.

Anyone know what the going price would be for these?

It's all about what the market will pay. I'd suggest you cruise around on ebay looking for similar items (maybe search a term like folk art?). I imagine they take more time to make than you will get compensated for, so I hope you are doing it as much for the fun as for the money :-)

Actually, putting a couple on ebay with a low reserve or no reserve would be a good way to do a value test.

Thanks Karinl, I tried to find some on Kijjii with no luck. Guess I did not know the right search words:-)

The first ones we make will cost nothing since I have lots of paint and things to decorate them with. It is mostly for fun so I don't expect to get rich quick from them, LOL

I would try selling on etsy. Also if you did a series with kids faces of different cultures it might sell well; there are so many blended families these days, I'm sure some people would like their decor to match their family a bit better.

They'd be really nice in a pediatrician's office waiting area.
