Wonderful article on the importance behind the prices of hand-made items. Would be a great read for, say, everyone, but particularly everyone who has ever tried to commission me and told me I was charging too much (which is 80% of people).
This really opened my eyes. I never really thought of it the way she describes. If I think about selling my snoods at £15 (which I originally thought was expensive, as some hight street shops sell them cheaper) I realise that if it takes 7 hours (which the last one did) I would essentially be paying myself 0.46 pence per hour. Not including any of the materials.
I will definitely not be shocked by etsy prices now, when I think of it this way :)
