A friend on Facebook posted this. It references Cake making, but I think it's sound advice for all Handmade Crafts.

This was a great article! I especially like "#1 If your clients wont pay what you deserve, then YOU are attracting the wrong clients." I like providing a variety of price points, because even though I want to charge my worth, I also seek to produce lower price-point-products for those who cannot afford my higher priced handmades. I believe in #1, but I don't want to price-out those who enjoy my work, and would love to buy something.

Thank you for your reply.
I agree that some people cannot afford {whatever we produce}. Having a sliding scale for others is probably a good idea. (In a small town, that might be dangerous. Some people might say, "just ask *****, s/he'll get it for you cheaper." Word gets around quickly in a small town.)
Thank you for your reply.
