Thanks Dick & Al, we went back and forth with pricing for a long time, we really want to keep our stuff affordable for most people, we live in the rust belt and it's been pretty depressed here for a long time now, if we can make something nice for people and enjoy doing it then we have reached our goals

I agree you should keep your pricing affordable. You have to make a choice... do you want to charge a lot and get a few orders or make it affordable and get a lot of orders. Maybe it's just me, I have had my store on Etsy for several months now and have only gotten a few sales. Lots of "favorites", lots of views but few sales. And my stuff is very affordable. I go to craft shows and get plenty of orders... people love my stuff and I do good work. I don't make a killing on anything but I make some. Most of all I am getting my name out there. People ask on Facebook in the local trading pages who does woodworking and I get recommended all the time. That to me is worth making less profit. As I get more established I can gently bump up my pricing and people will pay it. Basically for me, I want to have the work. Since I'm disabled and this is all I can do, I want to have something to do the few hours a day that I am able to work. The appreciation of the person when I deliver something that is above their expectation is my additional profit. Just my opinion, I got one like everyone :) Keep that sawdust flying, you are doing great work!

Thanks for your input, keep at the ETSY site it just takes time. We do facebook also, we are just now starting to get more local orders, took about 6 months of putting posts out there.
