I have a question?

Can someone give me idea on how to price these boxes I am altering. I am setting up at a flea market next weekend. I want to try to sell some because I can't keep them all.

Thank you


  1. Have you looked on Etsy for something comparable? Or figure out a price based on cost plus your time plus a profit? Good Luck.

  2. First off, Susan...they are incredibly beautiful. I would suggest pricing them for their that I mean your cost of what you used...then, add the hours it takes [go over minimum wage of course, 'cause there is a lot of artistic nature in the product you're selling] and then the finished product...always add on an extra $10. Hand made is always worth more these days.

    Thanks for stopping by Saturday...hope your weekend has been terrific so far!!

  3. I've just spent some time looking at your pretty boxes...they are beautiful. I wouldn't have a single clue as to how much to ask for them. I know you won't have any trouble selling them.
    Have fun and....oh, I just read A La Carte's comment, which is an excellent tip. Try looking at Ebay and I'll bet you can get a good idea.

  4. Hi Susan,

    I love the frames just the way they are with cherry wood.

    No question.



  5. great haul and tweaking!! Loved your rainbow moments comment, Susan.

    I'm learning to listen more for the message than throwing a fit about it going against my wishes. lol
