    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!
