Pricing - UGH
Sorry this is so long...I know much has been said about pricing. I have my first craft show coming up this Sat and I feel good about the prices I have set on my items. UNTIL I come to a birdbath I just finished today. If I take materials x 3, then my time is worth a mere pittance. It took me 28 hours to complete. I don't think I work slowly, but you know how painstaking mosaicing can be! I'm actually trying to make a business out of this love of mosaic and while this item is probably outside the scope of the show, I'm taking it anyway, so people can see what I do, in addition to the other offerings (smaller items). There are so many websites warning that people who sell handmade items, sell their items too low. I don't want to do that. I know I sound like I'm whining. Just trying to figure out what to do and bouncing it off y'all. I want to start off right and if I price low (even if it seems expensive), then I may be kicking myself later. I guess I can just throw out the price I want and see what happens. I don't mind people saying "whew, that's high", because they don't understand all that goes into a mosaic piece, but I just don't want them laughing at me! I'm posting a picture. It's not a good one, was late in the day. Can't figure out how to post more than one. Would like to post the bowl, but am too tired to figure out how to do it!!
