Thanks for that Dale,

I am leaning more towards the idea of upping the prices, just a little and see how it goes.

Making some cheapish Bottle stoppers and the like and also showing some of the more expensive stuff on the same stall, that way if I only sell the stoppers etc. then at least people will see the other stuff and maybe come back another day and I've still sold something.

I have actually increased the number of pens I have sold annually since I raised my prices about 25%.  I had heard comments that they must not be very good pens if they were priced that low.

Jim,
Good point, it's so difficult when you are just starting out to price things.

All replies have helped in different ways, thanks guys.   smiley=dankk2.gif smiley=thumbsup.gif
