I need some definitive advice about the prices for my wallets in my Etsy shop: http://CheshireNat.etsy.com

I've had friends (and customers!) tell me that I should raise my prices because of my craftsmanship, but a lot of my competition charges far less than I do (though, for wallets with fewer pockets, no ID slot etc.) and I've noticed that the items I put on sale have been selling like hotcakes.

So, should I raise my prices? Lower them a little bit? Keep them the same? How much would you all pay for one of my items?

Any advice would be incredibly helpful!!

I love the idea of duct tape wallets, don't think I would buy any because I have loads of them, my family seem to think I need one every year.

I think your craftsmanship is pretty good, but I try to stay realistic, it is duct tape, it's cheap, but of course it takes time to make the wallet. You could try and go up 5 $ and see if they sell, or even more. If it takes a longer time to sell or they stay in the shop then just add the tag "SALE!" everyone loves sale.

If they are selling, that's a great sign.  Sell a few, get a client base going, then raise a few bucks and see what happens.

And I'm lovin' the Bret wallet!   Wink
