1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: pricing and website - I feel like slamming my head into a wall on: June 29, 2011 09:12:07 PM
Your products are absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, I would be like those irritating customers who only buy the $30, $40 items and never snag your jackpot items. For the right audience I'm sure you couldn't make them fast enough. But for people on limited budgets a $170 item is probably "too rich for their blood." It sure is for me, anyway.

As one person said, can you create just as beautiful and wonderfully hand crafted items with less expensive supplies? Or perhaps you just need to market, market, market to the RIGHT audience, as another said. The people who would willingly drop that kind of money on what you create are out there, for sure. You just need to find them.

Either way, I've definitely been drooling over your pendants. I only wish I could afford them.

Your jewelery is beautiful. I love it. The prices look decent, too. But, as others have said, you need to make a profit. As a customer, I'd be more than willing to pay your prices... and I'd be willing to pay a little more, too, because they look so pretty and well-done.

I'm bookmarking your Etsy shop... and I can't wait to see what else you put on there!

Business cards are still very much the thing here in the US, too. But I don't see much non-business use of them. Thanks for the comment!

During my first year of college I became friends with a really cool lady. She gave me her number so we could keep in touch. Her number was on a calling card. A calling card? It was such an awesome, retro thing that I just had to take up the tradition. No more writing my number, email address and other contact information on a lousy Post-It. You wanna get a hold of me? Here's my card....

My scanner isn't working appropriately so I had to copy+paste these babies in multiple steps. I really liked doing it that way. And it gave the cards a very kitschy DIY look. Comments welcome and thanks for looking!

I think your pants are totally the shiit! So cool. I actually really like the low crotch, and the rolled up cuffs are such a hot addition to the whole look.

The shirt is super cute too. Thought you bought it at some swanky store at first, until I read further!! Love the button, and love the whole "pizazz!"

As for the title, eh, who cares. It got my attention!

And one more thing.... it's so hot to have some men around here. I wish I knew men who were into sewing... or anything craft-related beyond the garage, for that matter.  Cheesy

Much love,

Super, super cute stuff! They all look really great on you! And, if I can say so, you are so pretty! I love the haircut.  Grin

I agree with all of the above!! I absolutely adore what you've done. It looks fantastic all the way around.

I'm definitely hitting "bookmark" and "this rocks!"

I'm having a fetish lately for all things with large, billowy sleeves. The only thing I'd change about it is the length of the sleeves. I'd make them a bit longer. It just doesn't look quite right that they stop before your wrists.

Other than that, I think it's great!!

I hate to say this, but can you get $2 for a paper crane no matter how attractive or glossed?

What I would do is sell a set; that's the only way to make some decent dough on the deal.

So harsh! This woman is selling her ornaments for $10! A piece! That seems to be the going rate, but for a work craft fair, I thought that'd be too much.

There is a ton of history regarding the paper crane. Whole monuments devoted to the meaning of them. Whole cultures regard them as a very powerful symbol.

I do like your set idea. But, like I said, I'm not out to make mass amounts of money. It's for a special cause and this won't be the only thing I'm making. And, none of the earnings are going back into my pocket.

Thanks for the replies. I'm not looking to make tons of dough. They're meant to be sold at a Christmas craft fair where I work, to help raise some money for the residents. (I work at a nursing home.) Since many people will be helping make stuff, they aren't mean to be terribly pricey. I was thinking $1.50, to be honest.

Thanks for the help.
