    Ok so i made some dreamcatchers with my own birds feathers, they are about 8 to 10 round and then feathers comeing down, i am not sure how much to charge for them, what sounds like a good price to you guys?

    i also made some feathered decorative vases, i bought the vases already and then decorated them with my own birds feathers, again what do u guys think would be a good price?
  2. How much did it cost to make them?

    I do a lot of scroll saw/frett work and the rule of thumb that I follow is: $ materials + X hrs @ minimum wage.

    If your dream catchers material is $2.00 and say it take you 1 hr to complete at $7.25 so now it actually cost you $9.25 to make add you mark-up at 1.65% and your SR would be $14.98.

    Hope it helps.
