51  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Need pricing advice for little "gifty" items on: November 18, 2005 10:45:19 AM
I have a craft fair coming up in the beginning of December, and I'm a big fan of selling little $10-and under things for stocking stuffers- impulse buys, ya know?  Anyways, I'd like advice on some of the things I'm making---

Checkbook holders made out of gorgeous fabrics- currently about $4
Seed-beaded barrettes that sparkle like crazy- about $5 or $6
Little leather and suede flower pins with beaded centers- about $6

These things do take a while to make, but I think of it as stress relief, and besides (shhh-shhh) I work in a custom furniture store where I get leather and fabric swatches for free, so the cost of materials is minimal.

What do you think?

I've known how to sew since I was this tall, and I've always used my mom's old Kenmore.  When I got married a year and a half ago. she bought me my very own Huskystar for a bridal shower present (everybody at the shower agreed that it was by far the best present I got, cause they all know me so well.)  It has a ton more features on it than hers did, is more heavy-duty, yadda yadda yadda.  There are moments when I'm working on something and I will just miss hers to death, though, cause I was sooo used to it, and I think even after almost 2 years using my own (better) one, there are some things that her old machine just works better for.  Maybe it's homesickness, or maybe they just don't make things like they used to.  Sigh.
