If it is possible i would like to have some of your thoughts.
Tommorrow is the day that i have a stall to sell hopefully some pieces that i have made.
I have to say sorry as i have already set up the stall and i have forgotten to take some pics for you to see, but i will take some tommorrow.
So back to your thoughts, while i was setting things up i realised that this event isnt going to be as big as an affair as i first thought, i mean i thought more people were going to be having stalls but it seems like it is just the local church that have organised a few local people to make things eg jams, patchwork items, toys, books etc. Anyway while i was having a quick look, i noticed that some of the patchwork items were priced. There was a bag at £7.50, quite large pin cushions for £2.00 and some patchwork cushions for £6.00.
Now i know there has been alot of you that has had trouble pricing your items when you come to sell them. I had already sorted out a price list, but then my mother in law spoke to me ( she is one of the church ladies) as she wanted to ask what prices i was thinking of putting onto my things, when i told her she mentioned that i shouldnt price my items too high. I replyed that fair enough i realise that prehaps some of the people that wil be going will not expect to pay a higher price than what they are used to but if i didnt sell my things that i would keep hold of them and try on a stall near to xmas, prehaps at the primary school..
Now after this discussion i started to feel like that i have priced things too high, but i have been looking around in shops etc and i dont think that im too far off,
examples my cushions i was going to sell for £10.00 with the inner of £7.50 without,
my rabbits i was thinking of £5.50, doorstops £8.00 with rice inside,
pin cushions £2.00, lavender bags small 50p med £1.00 and Larger £2.50
you get the idea.......
so do you think they are too high are do i hold my ground and if i dont sell much then to try again at xmas, please i would like your thoughts. You know i felt abit like i was letting the ladies down because i have priced differently. I wondered whether it is because they are out of sinc and not relating to what the prices are now, or whether prehaps they want to keep the prices low so they can get some funds. Dont get me wrong they are lovely people and the last thing i want to do is to put anyones nose out of joint.
So please do try and help me tonight.....i would value your imput.... THANKYOU.....
