The flip side is too many "undercharge" and are not covering site fees, payapl fees, shipping expenses, labor, etc. I see so often on sites like Etsy/Ebay cheap cheap prices and wonder how the heck its even worth it. $1.00 or $2.00 for a bow and statements that read: "I don't overcharge because I love what I do and want your daughter to wear pretty things" I think ..what?? give me a break... its a business and I for one am not working to keep money in other people's pockets, I need money in my own pocket. If I wanted just to give other mom's a break and not make money at this I would just make it a hobby.
I have to say I agree with you. If you have a market and your clientele will pay it, more power to you. That is capitalism at work. And which is better, sell 10 of an item at $60 or have to sell 100 at $6. Same gross income, but it takes alot more time and money to make 100. And I also agree that the ones that undercharge are much more irksome to me. Okay, I will get off the soapbox now, lol.
