Hi!
I opened up my very first Etsy store this week! Yay! I'm selling coptic bound notebooks and mini-organizer boxes. I researched my competition on Etsy and I think I'm reasonably priced...or maybe not? There are quite a few notebooks that are selling for over $20 and I have mine at $13....anyway, I'd appreciate it if any of you can take a quick look and let me know what you think about my prices and my actual merchandise!
I'll be putting more items soon, as I make them...I recently sold them at a craft fair and did pretty well...almost everyone that past by my table showed interest.
Also, do you think I should focus on the smaller size notebooks (4.5"x5.75") or the larger ones (5.5" x 8.5")...

Thanks in advance for all your help!!

They look really nice.  That's amazing that you made the accordion ones from scratch.  As for pricing...I'm as cheap as can be...so my opinion would not be valid.  I will say this...if you can sell them for those prices at a craft show, you can definitely sell them for the same on line.

Wow, I think your stuff is gorgeous and you're massively under-pricing yourself!  Your most expensive item is $15.00, so 7.50 (to translate into money I can understand!).  I'm not sure where you're from but I'm from the UK and over here we've got a store called Paperchase that sells pretty notepads and stationary bits.  You'd be lucky to get something *half* as gorgeous as what you're selling from Paperchase, and everything they sell is probably made in some hideously polluting manner in the third world by sweatshop labour.  Plus their stuff is at least twice as expensive as yours.

On the pricing front, are you paying yourself a wage?  I know if an item takes hours to make then it's not always practical to payyourself a decent wage since you end up with an item costing hundreds of pounds, but even 3 ($6) an hour is something towards your time.  I would happily pay $30 for those notepads, I think you need to add at least half what you're charging on again (so charge $22.50 for a $15 item) and even think about doubling in some cases.  Remember on etsy people are looking for hand-made things, so will be expecting to pay more for something beautiful and well made and totally unique.  Which is basically everything you're selling!

Unless you put those together in 1/2 hour apiece - and I'm thinking NOT - then you should double your prices. You can always sell for a discount at shows, if you must.

Your stuff looks pretty darn nice.

I really like your stuff!  The rhino is cool.  Your photos are good too.  The only thing I would say, and please don't take this the wrong way - for the photos of your bags, I wonder if it would be better to NOT have them hanging over a heavily tattooed arm?  The reason being that I found my eye being drawn to the tattoos and not the bags - they might be a bit distracting. 

(Please note I have nothing against tattoos whatsoever!  I like this sleeve, it's cool.)

I would love for someone to take a look at what I have online, and critique it.  (I always hated this in art school, but suck it up, right?!)
