My friends and I just hosted a boutique at my home. They sold handmade soaps, jewelry, scarves, here’s what I sold:

Dishwasher “clean/dirty” things $2 sold 2 of 5
4x6 magnetic calendars $3 sold 4 of 4, took orders for 6 more
Fill-in the blank flat thank-you’s $2.50, didn’t sell any boy sets, sold 2 of 2 girl sets, took orders for 5 more
Calendar bookmarks $1, sold 6 of 6
4x6 table top acrylic note pad holders w/ matching beaded pen $5, sold 1 of 2
3x5 table top acrylic note pad holders w/ matching beaded pen $3.50 sold 2 of 2
Winter Survival Kits $2 sold 6 of 6
Big Fudge $1.50 sold 6 of 6
Little Fudge $.75 sold 6 of 6
Box of 5 cards (organizer type from Target last year) $13 sold 2 of 3
Candles $1.50 - $3.50 sold 8 of 13

My sister told me after the fact that I way under-priced things! I struggled with pricing. When making cards I typically stick to the 3x cost rule but didn’t know how to account for the cost of frames and such. So what I ended up doing was multiplying the cost of my craft materials by 3 and then adding the price of the envelope, frame, pen, candle, or whatever. Did I gip myself?

How do you all do it?
