Default Pricing on ribbon wrapped headbands?

Hi all! I just started doing the ribbon woven headbands. I LOVE making them...Honestly, I think I'm obsessed with them at the moment! I am going to a HUGE 3 day craft show in about 3 weeks and I was going to take some with me to sell. I'm just not sure how to price them. What do you guys price them? I have both 1 inch and 1/2 inch headbands.... Thanks guys!

$5-6 is the average I believe. $5 for 1/2" and $6 for 1"

also should note assuming you meant the WOVEN headbands, not just ribbon wrapped

I have a show coming up in September so i have been searching etsy for prices. i have seem many people pricing the woven headbands for $8. I am going to start mine at $8 and if I need to, I will drop them to $6. I am obsessed with them too because I love all the possible combinations. Even though I love doing them so much, it still takes alot of time to do them. So $6 doesn't seem like enough. I realize the you only get what people will pay but we need to get paid for our tie as well.

Yes, I meant woven headbands! LOL I was thinking about charging $6 each for the 1 inch bands. But when I was doing the math for them, as of right now, it takes me about 30 minutes to make one (although I am getting faster with each one I make) so if I sold 2, I'd be making $12 an hour before MY costs. But I am hoping that I can speed up my time and atleast make 3 in an hour... how long does it take you guys to make one?

I charge $6 for all of them regardless of size. It actually takes me a bit longer to make the 1/2 vs the 1inch, so I just charge the same. I even charge $6 for American Girl ones too. It takes me about 15 minutes to make one.

I charge $6 for mine. I always look on Etsy when I am trying to figure out prices.

It all depends on your area. The boutique I sell to gets $10 for them easily. I sell them for $8 at shows, with a discount if you buy more than one. I get that easily for the 1 inch ones.

That being said, I did a flea market-y type show a few weeks ago and only sold 2. I think for that type of market, $8 was high. It comes down to knowing your audience/shopper.
