Its only overpriced if no one is willing to pay it :D

Pricing isn’t rational on either side. I’ve found that if things are priced to cheaply it also hurts your sales because folks figure it must be worth what you’re asking (not much) and aren’t interested in it because ..well .. if its that cheap it must be cheap. I know more than one person who doubled their sales by doubling their prices.

OTOH if what you are selling is a commodity its easy to get priced out of the market. The key, I believe, for a small producer is to make whatever you’re selling NOT a commodity and then its art/craft/(whatever you want to call it) and the market is as high as you can charge and have people still buy it.
