Default Pricing help

First, I wanted to share a neat etsy fee calculator that I found http://www.rolbe.com/etsy.htm You can enter the amount you are selling the item for, shipping cost, materials cost and it gives you an idea of how much your profit is.

Site seems to be doing right now, though.

Second, speaking about profits and pricing. I would appreciate some opinions about my pricing. Are they too low? To high? I want to keep my items affordable while at least paying myself back for the time.

Here's my shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/blueskydesignsco?ref=si_shop

Thanks in advance!

$2 per bow seems low for ANY bow!!! And yours are cute. You should ask market value for these bows. Just do a search on Etsy and go middle of the road

I think your items are very cute, nice variety of colors. But I agree with the other ladies, you're priced a bit low. For a set of 2 boutique bows I might charge $6.99 or 7.99. I also really like your banner!

Thank you ladies! I had a feeling that some were too low. There's a lot of competition out there, but I don't want to give my stuff away. I'm off to do my research.

Thanks again!
