I have made these pint glasses and plan to sell them at car shows/craft shows/flea market/whatever but I am having a hard time comming up with a price for them. They dont cost a lot to make, but the time in cutting the stencils can be extensive. Anyway, what would you peeps pay for them, assuming you couldnt make them yourself (i know, all us crafters can make anything...im not selling to crafters!!! haha)
Heres some pictures:

They cost 10.00 for 12 glasses. I spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes cutting the stencils.  I know the little chart for giving myself an hourly wage and all, but that always seems way too high to charge. I was thinking 12.00 each, but i wanted to get some feedback from what other people think people would pay.

I would charge $8-10 each.  I esp. like the psychobilly ones.

I think you'd have better luck selling them as sets as opposed to individually...maybe 4 for $40...something along those lines.

Yea, I have been working on that, but only a few as sets. It is hard to get the time when the 5 year old monster requires my attention...lol.
Thank you for the advice everyone!

I didn't mean matching sets necessarily...a mixed set like one skull and bones, one anchor, one star, and one gun...something like that. I'd love a set like that.

Ahhh...see, theres me being all narrow minded again. Good idea! Maybe a sign like "$10.00 each or 4 for $35.00" and people can make their own sets. I need to get crackin on more, ive been lazy lately...well, I've been making other stuff instead and putting these on the burner...do you know how bad it hurts your hand after a while?!?!?!

That's what I was thinking too.  Someone may not be as inclined to buy a matching set of 4, BUT a psychobilly set, absolutely.
