Default Price point for flip flops?

How much do y'all charge for your flip flops? I made some for DD and got a bunch of orders at our playgroup. I hadn't really thought about how much I should charge for them so when people started asking, I just said $12. Now no one batted an eye at this price, but I'm wondering is that too much, too little or just right? Here's a pic of what they look like.

I haven't made any, but it sounds like a good price to me. I would buy them.

They are very cute and comparible to Chez Ami; therefore, I would charge $19.95 a pair. I plan on selling them wholesale for 9.95 a pair!

I sell these all the time. Here is my pricing:

Infant (with straps):$18
Toddler: $16
Girls: $18
Women: $20

The infant flip flops are more expensive because the cost of the flip flop is more expensive. When I was coming up with pricing, I based it on the bows...what two bows would sell for. To me it's basically making a pair of bows, but adding it to a flip flop instead of a clip. Plus a little more goes into the flip flops because I wrap the straps too. I have not had any complaints on my pricing and have sold lots of them. HTH

Looking at those listed on Etsy you could probably go up a few bucks!

If it's just a basic bowtique bow with the ribbon wrapping on the top and bottom, I usually charge $15, If it is the layered surround-a-bow, I charge $18 per pair. Does that make sense?

Now do you wrap the infant flip flops with the back strap? If so you do you do that? I tried on DD's and it looked all wonky.

I make them with korkers and charge $15 and I wrap it too, you can see them at Etsy :: katherineskustombows :: Katherines Kustom Bows and Flip Flops

I had a hard time deciding what to charge too
