It's difficult to tell without knowing what you've done for the pins. Is it buttons you've added to them or are they intricate polymer clay models. Have they taken you moments or hours? The other thing that would influence my answer would be the cost of materials e.g. plastic beads or semi-precious stones?

You must, at least, cover your costs, which would include a contribution towards overheads such as the stall.

Then $2 would seem OK, but have a sneaky look round the other stalls to see if others are under or overselling you.

My boyfriend is coming with me and I'm sending him to peruse the show before then change into his shirt with my logo on it. He has an epic handlebar mustache that gets a lot of attention so I'm gonna have him walk around with my logo on.

If you want to push them out the door, sell "sets" of multiples at different price levels. Who is going to buy just one? So price a single at a higher rate so they'll move onto the obvious opportunity of purchasing multiples.

i would love to see them displayed in tea cups or saucers, or even carded with your logo on. $2 each is fine, i think its a great impulse buy, what girl doesnt like hair clips?? you could say 1 for $2 or 3 for $5?

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
