Pricing items- Something to think about

If you’re like me, it’s really hard to price your creations.

I tend to think like a buyer. Would I pay that much? Where else can I get it, and at what cost?

I need to think like a crafter. Handmade item. One of a kind. How long did it take to make? How much was the materials to make it?

A character hat can cost up to $12 of inexpensive yarn, just for the appropriate colors. Then time and talent need to be factored in. Think about it.

Thinking

Here’s a great article for crafters and buyers alike.
