I'm struggling over the prices in my Etsy shop. I think maybe I need a more consistent pricing structure? Right now I price based on the cost of materials. But that results in a big variance of prices. Because sometimes the materials are a great find, and other times it's a killer eBay cage match in order to get them.
I'm also being told that my items are priced too low. "Blah blah, perceived value. Blah, blah stop buying supplies. Blah, blah make my dinner." Which bothers me because I want to keep what I make accessible. But after reviewing my last Etsy bill...ufta!
I'm tempted to close up the shop for a few days and restructure prices. But I'm afraid that I'll turn buyers away if I do that.
What do you think?
