Pricing items for craft stall and website

Hi Everyone,

I started making jewellery when on enforced rest after serious illness, then began selling to friends before going public.

I've had a little website on groovycart (free!) for a few years, a FB page and have also done a couple of craft shows a year. I pay tax on it as otherwise I'd be too worried to advertise!

Anyway, my question. At the last two craft fairs people have said I am underpricing my goods. I think it's a confidence issue, ie I worry about charging people for something which may break (afaik nothing ever has). I add a couple of punds onto the cost of materials. I know, that's not taking my time into account but this is an overgrown hobby not my livelihood.

Would anyone mind looking at my website/FB page and commenting on pricing? Not sure I'm allowed to link here so if you have time and can help, please DM me.

Thank you for any advice.

Hi There,
I make candles/bath products as a hobby and occasionally sell at markets etc. More than happy to have a look at your website and give you some feedback....what's the address?

Also Etsy.com give some really useful tips on pricing, it might be worth a look!
