I'm doing my second show this weekend near Houston. It's a craft show sponsored by the local FFA. To go with the few bowls, vases and HF's I had left from the previous art show I did, I also turned some pewter-lidded potpourri bowls, mushrooms, birdhouses, duck calls and antler pens...to satisfy the craft element.
My pricing question regards the pens. They are all 24k gold slimline kits from PSI. About half of them I did in antler and the other half are 30-06 cartridge lowers with antler tops. I used the supplied nib with the cartridge pens.
I'm considering asking $20 for the straight antler pens and $25 for the cartridge pens. The $5 difference is to cover the 30-06 brass and the 10" long 7 mm tubes that I had to buy.
What do y'all think of the pricing? I don't want to overprice the pens but I don't want to be undercutting others who may depend a lot on craft show income. I just do this for grins and to supplement my tool budget.
This is in an affluent suburb just north of Houston but being a craft show sponsored by the Future Farmers of America, I don't expect too many deep-pocketed patrons.
What do y'all think?
