    Pricing Help

    Advertisements
    I have a craft Bazaar next month and need some help with my pricing. A lot of people tall me my bags are really cheap, I try to keep my prices to what I would pay for one of my purses, I don't want to rip people off, but then I want to make sure I am also being paid a fair price as a lot of work goes into my bags. I am going to put the prices up a little, but want some opinions on how much people think my bags are worth. For the styles I make (depending on style) I have seen them priced anywhere from $15 to $200 (yeah big difference). I also give a discount if you have the uniform and have noticed most people charge extra is you don't have the uniform any where from $10-$50 extra.

    So here are some of my designs, they all come standard with small pocket on the inside (diaperbags have diaper/wipes pocket on inside too), pocket on the outside with or without flap (diaper bags have 2 pockets + diaper/wipes pocket on back and bottle pockets on sides) and name tape, I also supply fabric for inside and can add extra patches you supply at no cost (I can supply patches for min cost)

    Basic Tote


    Basic purse with contrast


    Basic 2 pocket purse


    Beach bag with Ribbon


    Basic Diaper bag


    Clutch with bow (no pocket on outside)


    Slouch bag (not pictured in Military print)



    Extras (price suggestions please):
    Ribbon
    Bows
    Contrast Fabric
    Closures (zip, magnetic clasp, ribbon, velcro)
    Extra name tapes
    Extra velcro for patches or patches
    extra pockets


    If you have pricing suggestions for any of my other stuff on my website www.myspace.com/sandykayroddy it would be much appreciated too.

    The top bag looks really familiar

    I think that you could probably charge more than you do, especially when selling off of your website... your craftsmanship is fantastic and my MIL and mom both get compliments on their bags wherever they go.

    Cant really tell the sizes, but from the pic I would pay $20-$30 for the beach bag and bottom pictured bag!

    As far as accessories... I will be honest and say I have no idea how long it takes to do those things, but here are my suggestions
    Ribbon= $1.50
    Bows= $1.50
    Contrast Fabric =$3.00
    Closures (zip, magnetic clasp, ribbon, velcro) = $4.00, $2.50, $1.50, $3.00
    Extra name tapes= Im guessing you sow these yourself, $4.00 for the first, $2.75 each after that
    Extra velcro for patches or patches= $2.00 for velcro, whatever the patch is worth for that
    extra pockets= $2.00

    I don't really know what you should charge. I do know that you are alot cheaper than the lady here at the PX, and yours are much nicer. But I don't want you to up your prices...because I intend to buy a diaper bag . But I do think that you could definately demand some more money for your work, and even if you did raise the price, I would probably pay $65-70 for the basic diaper bag.
