Hey all you Lumberjock members…... I am entering my FIRST craft show (at one of the biggest Rodeo’s in Central Oregon). I’ve been busting my butt to get a bunch of stuff done. I’m just not sure what I should be asking for some of this stuff and I was hoping you could give me input. I’ve been making those cast iron bull horn coat racks, the horse ones with shelves, the wood american flag and of course birdhouses.
I was thinking in the $35-$45 range for the juniper cast iron wall hangings and about $50 for the flag. Is that reasonable, or am I asking too much or not enough. I have pics of them on my “projects”.....would sure like your imput.

Sounds reasonable to me. Maybe bring extra price tags in case you are too low or too high. If possible check out other people things while you are setting up and make some quick changes if you have to. Good luck.

This is pretty different from the projects I do, so I’d have a hard time suggesting prices. You want to pay for your materials, cover your expenses (electricity, wear and tear on tools, craft show booth fee, etc.), and pay yourself for your time.
