See what the other crafters are selling and check pricing. In looking into it, I found that pricing can vary greatly by geography alone.
Location, location, location. I found out long ago, you can go 10 miles, price your stuff at X $, and sell everything. But go 10 miles in the opposite direction, price your stuff the same, and don't make near as many sales. Doesn't happen like that real often, but can. If you sell out in an hour, your prices are too low. If you make one or two, or no, sales, then your prices are too high. Can be vary hard striking a balance. I think I have the pricing on my canes pretty well worked oout now (time will tell). But the canes are all quite similar, cost to make should be the same, and time to make should be the same, except some of the figure drawing will take longer than others - which is not a biggie with me, because that is actually a bit relaxing for me. The price will be boosted some for the more complex designs, and if anyone wants them colored, then the prices will be boosted a fair amount more - because I hate painting them for anyone but myself. That's what markers were invented for, so customers can decorate their own canes. Hehehe
The pig and truck banks now, still trying to figure out pricing on those. The difficulty there is I have different size designs for each, short to long, and different widths. Time increases a tad with wider banks too. Be nice to have a formula that would work with anything I make, but I don't see that happening.
