I just started a new home-based business and am having a little bit of trouble pricing these purses!

What would you charge or pay for these customized purses?

Is there anything you would add?

I don't like the tulle. Can't imagine not getting it snagged on something.

Not a big fan of the tulle either, but DD would like these purses.  I would say that the price of the purse should depend on the material used to make them.  I usually don't pay more than $40 for a hand bag.

Lol! For myself neither do I. But little girls look so cute with these!

I think maybe add a little "bling" to them....even without it you could probably get away with charging at least 20 bucks for them....do you have farmer's markets around your house??? You can also get hooked up with one of those and sell them there. I know here they would probably be a really good seller at one because everyone brings their kids with them to the market!!!

Since I can only imagine such an item being for a VERY YOUNG girl to use mostly for play -- $20 tops.

thank you ladies! I have decided to sell them for $20-$25.
And a few days ago I made one for an adult, pre-teen and a teen. I guess the bigger girls like it to!

I agree ...  Adult women would not use this in public ... the tule does it... BUT... if you tried to work with a dance company (like if your daughter takes dance); small company locally that offeres ballet and dance classes and offer her a piece of the profit, you might do well selling them there if you did for $25 ... $price them low at first... and make about 10-15 of them for display at the place, then take orders... it gets your name out there....

I would not pay more for it because people like variety on purses so in order to do that, to have variety, some women will not pay more...
