Hello, I am new here!!! So I hope I am doing this correctly.

I am having a problem. I just started my own "jack of all trades" craft business. I am trying to figure out pricing. I live in southwest Wisconsin. I want to set competitive prices without losing money!  Shocked I have customers ordering and requesting prices, please help!

Go to your local jewelry stores and look at their prices, add 10% for custom work. Also look at Etsy and ebay to see what people are charging for similar work.

I also suggest a search in etsy! the similar crafts or the same material are a good guide, there are also some threads there you might ask some one in your area to give you suggestions Smiley
