Hi, I'm going to be selling at a craft fair for the first time and I'm agonizing over how much to charge. I know the materials formula, but I'm interestingly knowing how much people think I should charge
Thank you in advance for any advice!

I've seen them go for anywhere from $15 - $60. Yours is probably somewhere in the middle.

Thank you for the advice! I was thinking $30 for these and $15 for some felted wands I made, so that fits right in with what you said :-)

For me, a lot of it depends on the place I'm selling. When I price my items it changes based on the clientele.

What happens when a customer who bought at a higher priced show sees you at a lower priced show? They will feel cheated. And you lost a potential repeat customer.

Set your price and stay there. If you're at a show where your work is considered a bargain, you'll sell out. And the whole object of doing shows is to not take anything home with you.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.
