Quick Opinion Needed!!

We were trying to figure this out on our own and it dawned on me, my ladies would LOVE to give their opinion! Am I right?

My daughter makes and sells beautiful notecards and journals. We recently found a ‘store’ that wants to sell them and we are stumped about the price for the journals. (we are all set on the cards) We are not sure what they are going to sell them for. We would ‘like’ $5.00 for them, but we need to make sure they can make something off of them too.

What do you think is a fair price for the following notebook/journals?

(oh, they are made out of composition notebooks)

Personally, I think she might be able to get a bit more. She has very pretty items!

Those are so pretty! I think she could get more too. Depending on the store, I probably wouldn't want to charge more than $7-8...

Coby said...

Those are beautiful!!! Ditto to what Becky said - $7-8. Lovely!

I saw them in person, and I also think $7-$8. It also depends on how much she actually has invested in them. How much the journal costs, the pretty papers, the glue, and her time.

These are so pretty. I agree with the others. =0)

How pretty! I am with the other ladies on this! It all comes down to what I am willing to spend for something. If it's homemade and I'm supporting a Christian, then I am willing to spend a little extra than I normally would for a commercially-made item!

Those are so cute! And congrats on getting a store to carry them!! That's huge!

And I agree...I think you could go for $7-8 :) Hope this helps and good luck!

They are so pretty! I am not good at pricing...but I would sure buy one, or two. :)

Ok, so here's what ran through my head....

They are very pretty to look at and at 7-8 ea. I would pick them up and say oh those are really pretty and put them back down...

I do not normally buy journal's but if I was wanting to buy one or two as gifts or for the gift closet at church, I would be more likely to purchase at 5-6 dollars ea. and with them priced lower, you might move more of them. If you are wanting to get $5 then that tells me you have a profit at that amount already....so better to sell them and not sit on lost revenue.
