I just made a Record Bag and am wanting to make and sell some.
A friend of mine requested one. I'm trying to figure out how much to charge her. I know I need to take material cost and S&H (she lives in FL and I in MO) into consideration, but I don't know how much more to charge her.

Also, I'm in college and I'm thinking about posting a few flyers around campus offering to make and sell. I go to a work college which means 90% of the students there are working on campus to pay for their room/board and tuition b/c they don't come from incredibly well-off families.
So how much should I offer to sell at if anyone is interested? Should maybe I just have the first person interested make an offer and make that my regular price?

I'm a cheepskape so I hate buying anything expensive so it's hard for me to want to price anything at a higher price.

It really comes down to cost of product + amount of time you spent on it. I would double the price of your supplies, and then pay yourself, say, ten dollars an hour.

bridges and houses are learning to fly secretly so we won't know why. and good for them!

This is exactly what I do although I pay myself $15 a hour now that I'm getting some repeat business.
