I took a look at your shop and think it's perfect. I would feel comfortable buying your items!  Grin

I'm Just starting my etsy shop as well, and what i've done is searched simular items that are being sold. Take for example bottlecap pedants. Some are sold from $7 to $25 dollars depending on the embellishments.

So with that example I would say
1. The price range found on etsy (low-highest)
2. The material cost (the price for resin, embellishment/charms, bottlecap, chain, and jump rings. since they're bought in bulk I would said by giving it to someone i'm only out maybe x dollars)
3. The amount you would reasonably pay. If something is 25 bucks your more likely to think about that purchase. If something is 4 or 5 dollars you are more likely to do an impulse buy or add it to your order.
4. Shipping Cost. (high shipping cost outweigh low prices sometimes.)

There for starting out I would be able to confortably be able to sell the bottlecap necklaces at 8.50 + shipping.

Now over time after you get comfortable with etsy, you have a larger base of sales,  and you perfect your items I would say I would feel comfortable to adjust the prices.

Main rule of thumb as much as we would like to sell a pillowcase with a couple lines on it and call it modern art for $250. The likelyhood of the purchase is very high. Just think about what you would honestly pay. The lower prices will pay off once you get a lot of people

Is that a chicago art institute lion magnet I spot in the lower right hand corner?

Magnets are awsome. You gave me a great Idea for a magnet swap.

I make so many, fill the fridge, give them all away, and then start over. LOL

the fiance and i are both italian...but i'm the picky one!

..so he only likes angelhair? geeze..it all tastes the same  Tongue
he doesn't even like alfredo sauce?

my mom takes angel hair and throws in some butter, garlic, black pepper, and bacon. i suppose you can do something like that (just no bacon).

start off with a big bowl of marenara and breadsticks, then come in with the pasta. good luck, and i can't wait to see the cake!

I'm totally with you i'm italian to. And man it's like a sin not to like alfredo sauce. I can't believe he doesn't like it. It took me so much work to go ahead and get him to try bread sticks AND marenara TOGETHER. He's soo funny.  Grin

His birthday is coming up. Thank god for craftsters I was able to get help on his gifts which is another story.

But a little background. Going out for 5 years in jan. He doesnt' eat anything. He's italian. Typically what he likes is angelhair pasta, breadsticks and i have no idea. Only marenara sauce no meat sauce not because he's a vegitarian he's just that picki.

Any Ideas on a italian dinner?

I'm working on a dnd cake which should be interesting....  Undecided Tongue

Grill up some potatoes on the grill. wrap them in tin foil and your good to go. Google the cook time. Potatoes take a long time to cook so put them on before anything and keep them on. They are sooo good and easy. Add butter, onion, or sour cream and chives. or chedder. or bacon or brocolli ok i'm done lol. They-re awsome and everyone loves them even my pickie boy toy.  Grin Good luck!

I dislike that her recipes take more than 30 minutes for a normal person to cook.  Sure, I could cook that fast if I did it for a living, and my blood was 97% caffeine...

I agree. Plus her annoying dunkin donut commericals don't get her any points. Really with the food network you need to substitute.

Totally make your own trail mix.

Stuff you add:
chocolate chips

Oh And if you have an option to make a fire throwing corn on the fire is amazing. Also wrap up some potatos in tin foil and have baked/mashed/ or whatever potatoes.
