i know everyone gets tired of questions about pricing. but i was wondering, would you guys pay more for a reversible tote or purse than you would for a conventional one? or do you think they should be priced about the same?? preparing for the opening of my etsy!! hopefully in time for christmas shopping

It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezes are cool.

i think it should be more expensive. The buyer gets more options

I agree. I would pay more for a reversible tote.

I would check around and see what other people are pricing theirs at. That would give you a good idea of the average price difference between the two.

IMHO <--- But, remember I'm only one person.

1.  To me, pockets are more important than being reversable.
If I lose my ability to have pockets, I won't be willing to pay more for the bag.

2.  The inside of my bags also tend to get dirty.  (Perhaps it's justme Wink ).  Anything affordable that can be done to keep both inside and outside fabrics clean.... the better.

what do you mean something to keep them clean? i mean, other than washing them. do you just mean making them washable fabrics?

reversible is neat because it does mean more options but also not too many people would really think it through that you could use it 2 ways, (at least i wouldn't, I'm not like oh this purse is reversible so I'll pay more, I'm like this purse cost ____ do i want to pay that?) so more is OK just not a ridicules amount more

if it was reversible AND washable.... I remember once a "peach" bag that ended up not so peach... AAAANNND it had pockets on both sides then yes, more money paid. More pockets = pay more so I guess reversible = pay more as it's more work and ppl should appreciate that I guess!!  Cheesy
