A question for those of you crafters who sell items....or those of you who would buy something similar. For an item to be sold among friends at work..... I'm curious to learn...what's the going price(s) (in US $) for these items?
Crocheted shamrock, 100% acrylic, 3 inches high by 2½ wide.
-With a ¾ inch pin back or
-With a ¾ diameter round magnet.
Would the price be the same using 100% cotton instead of acrylic?
Thanks for your answers!
When I sell items, I charge per yard, plus cost of materials. For example, if I am selling a plain garter scarf made of 100 yds, I'd charge $0.10 per yard ($10) and cost of materials (usually one skein of some yarn). So the scarf would cost about 15 bucks or so.
I'd determine how many yds each piece uses and then do the math to add the materials charge.
Of course, this only applies if you want to get really technical about it, which I do. When I sold items, I included an itemized "receipt". One lady who bought from me came back and energetically complimented me on the "receipt"; she said she really appreciated my taking the time to itemize where her money was going.
Just a thought ...
