I have inquiries!

A while back I made a lamp for my dd's room and I had a friend who was very interested. so we decided to do a swap. I would make her a lamp and she would make me a quilt. Well, she got the lamp and she has had several inquiries about it and people are wondering if I sell them and how much I would sell for. I would love to make and sell them and each one would be customized but I honestly dont have a clue how I would come up with a price. here's what I made her. I customized this by using teal, red, black & silver beads, outlined the zebra stripes with teal & red glitter glue, black boa and added a little silver turtle because my friend loves turtles. Any thoughts/suggestions?

How much did it cost you to make? A good rule is cost of supplies+enough to make another+profit.

Make sure you cover cost of supplies. Some people also charge for the amount of time that went into making the item.

I use cost plus 2.5 - so if it cost you $10 to make, $25 covers the cost to remake one plus make an additional one, and award yourself $5 OR if you dont want to do the double up inventory rule, $15 in your pocket. :)
