Okay, guys, I need some pricing advice. I was thinking about opening up an Etsy shop, starting with these hats (or something like them).

I can make sizes newborn - adult. I have no idea how to price them. Everytime I try to get feedback from the husband, he says it's too low. Here's what I was thinking.



Newborn - 12 Months = $5
Toddler - Preschooler = $10
Child = $15
Teen - Adult = $20



Does that sound reasonable? I'm terrible at this.

Those are adorable! I think the pricing is a little low though. You gotta remember that they take our fees for each sale and whatnot. If you're able to make a decent profit off of those prices, then I would just add to those prices the fee costs for each sale.

U want to make a profit at some point so add up cost of materials, how much time to make one should be taken into consideration. I think ur prices are a little low but I love that as a potential costumer lol

Thanks everyone. :)



I'd make a profit, probably not a HUGE amount, but atleast enough to support my crafting (which is what I'd need most). Any extra after that would help with bills and such.
