    What would you pay for this tomato cage? My father makes them and wants to start selling them but he cannot come up with a price.

    Let me know what you think..........

    How clever your Dad is! Those are truly a combination of looks and function.

    Where I live they would probably fetch about $15 each (a suburb with crazy manicured lawns and gardens). I suggest he figures out the cost of his materials, the cost of his labor, what wire tomato cages sell for and maybe come up with a price from that.

    Great idea and good luck with it!

    Out here they might go for $10 to $12 each maybe more. Really neat idea your dad has.

    That would probably sell for $20 here in CT! It's very nice looking.
