I know there are a lot of purses out there that are either ridiculously expensive or incredibly cheap. How they get that way, I don't know. But here's my question anyways.

I've been starting to seriously think about selling my monster purses, like creating a name, label, website, etc.. for it. And I know a lot of crafters would love me for it if I did. One problem: How much would you pay for something like this?



I know a posted a tutorial for it and everything but I'm still thinking about selling them. I can't right at the moment because I don't have a sewing machine, but once my mom buys me one, I get a job where I can buy my own fabric, and school starts ((use their sewing machines, fabric, thread, HA!)), then I'd sell them.

So yeah, what would you pay for a monster purse by me?

25 euro's. I guess that's about 30 dollar?

Yeah I'd agree with the 30 dollar assessment...

someplace like Hot Topic would LOVE these...but I don't know if they deal with local sellers or not.

Other ideas for places to sell "hands on" as opposed to online would be a spot in the mall, specialty shops, or even local craft shows and open air markets/starving artist fairs.

They are truly awesome, I wish you the best of luck!

Also,another thing that would be uber-cute would be little change purses to match made of a tiny monster...one the big monster could have eaten Cheesy

$30 seems like a good price, plus a bit of shipping and handling.

I know Hot Topic would want them, we have one here. but I don't believe they take local sellers. Which kind of sucks. But we do have a lot of specialty shops, so I'll definitly look into that. But probably the main business would be directly from a website. And maybe craftster users will get a discount.  Wink

I was thinking about the change purse idea, or even a folding wallet. I ordered a bunch of swatches from distinctivefabrics.com, so I'm going to see if I can make one or two using them.

If it were lined nicely probably 30 - 40 dollars.  No lining, 20 - 30.

Don't just do it based on "how much would you pay" though.  You have to take into consideration cost of supplies, labour (determine an hourly wage for yourself and include that in the price), and wear and tear on your machine (when/if you get one).  Don't forget to leave room for profit!

I would charge $35-$40, though it totally depends on materials and time... You could always start around there and then slowly raise the price depending on sales. That bag is soo cute!!

I think I would pay $30 if that included the shipping.
