I do go to the critques part of etsy forum and ask opinion well I use to I will not anymore. One of the biggest comments I got was that my prices were too low..... Well I went about busily changing my prices to no avail still no sales. Then I started looking at some of the stores for the ones telling me to raise my prices and too my amazement some of their prices were at or lower than mine so now I have decided I don't care if some other crafter likes my prices or not they are what I charge whether I sell it on etsy or at a craft show. If all I do is raise my prices to please everyone else it doesn't make me happy. I have even posted a new message on my store an it is as follows:
I would also like to say I have kept my prices low not because my items are cheap but because times are hard for all of us. I am not interested in making a fortune off of my jewelry and bags but to keep what I like to do going. Sure I earn a little money but not as much as some people do. I love what I do and that is the reason I do it. I set my prices where I want so that the average person with average wages can afford them.
I truely like what I do.... I like making money but I also know that times are hard for everyone so if we all get together and charge reasonable prices instead of trying to be millionaires off of our crafts then we would all sell more.
Thanks and have a good day!!!!
