I found these great ties at a local thrift store and couldn't pass them up, so here's what I did with them.
These are the smaller end of the ties I'm going to use the larger end for a hand bag.



I'm thinking about selling a few of these at an up coming craft show and I was wondering what to charge for them.
The ties were a dollar a peice so I think the minimum I should charge whould be three dollars but then are they even worth that much?

oh cute.
they're really awesome.
if I were you (you live  in the us right? us prices?... i'm not from the US, and 3 dollars is like nothing.) i would price them at about $4 to $4.50 USD.
i would definetly pay that much. and 3 would be awesome... but then youre not making a profit.

Id say five dollars are fair for a coin purse, you could even go up to six. but, just as a suggestion, you might want to finish them more... If I was considering buying a coinpurse, personally, I would want it to have a zipper, or a tigher closure because I dont want it leaking all over my purse. this one looks awesome asthetically, but looks like it would spill change out the sides at the top, if ya know what I mean! this is just a suggestion though, so hopefully it didnt hurt your feelings!

hope this helps Smiley

^ I agree.  I would be willing to pay $6.00-$6.50 if it had a zipper.  Without a zipper -as is- I would be willing to pay $4.00-$4.50.   I think you should definetely sell them, though! They're cute and would sell really well.

those are really cute
and like everyone else
i think it should have a zipper
im not sure how tho
cuz then you might not be able to have the button
i also think itd be cute if u added little things like
random buttons/beads and embordary or something.
just a thought.
but id deff buy one if it had a zipper. =)
and i say 5 or 6 is reasonable.

Those are so cute. I think that $5 or 6 is good for them. If you don't want to or don't know how to put in a zipper, you could try velcro.

that's really cute, I have to agree with everyone on the zipper though.  don't want that change falling out into your purse.

the matching purse/coinpurse set would be crazy cute

Well, if you do want to have the zipper, maybe you could put that right where it closes and still have velcro holding the top of it down, therefore it works just as great and has the same look to it
