Tips for Pricing? Rounding to the nearest $10?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Derek Voigt Jan 28. 9 Replies

My husband's background is sales and marketing, and he's pretty good at it. He has always insisted my prices should end in 9 rather than being an even $10 i.e. make a price $49 rather than $50. I'm…Continue

What if you don't have a booth pic?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Robert Wallis Mar 31, 2017. 4 Replies

I'm just starting out, so my layout is pretty simple. More problematic, however, is I haven't yet done an outdoor show, so I have no proper booth pic. I've been using pics from indoor shows I've…Continue

"I would agree with Greg and the others.  I think it's a bad idea.  Pricing your work to end with a 9 could take the art patron's mindset from that of being in a gallery setting to an aisle in Target."

Tips for Pricing? Rounding to the nearest $10?

My husband's background is sales and marketing, and he's pretty good at it. He has always insisted my prices should end in 9 rather than being an even $10 i.e. make a price $49 rather than $50. I'm not sure I've ever seen another art fair person do this, however. Is it a good idea? Does it annoy customers? Does it matter?See More

What is your website?
http://www.remintedjewelry.com
Best show ever and why
Royal Oak Art Fair in Michigan. Great sales, comfortable location, helpful organizers.
Worst show ever and why
University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Despite signing a contract promising all of my goods were handcrafted, more than 50% of vendors were buy/sell. When I complained, I was told it wasn't the organizer's responsibility to verify vendors were living up to their contracts. I made zero sales.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I hold an MA in history, and I provide information about most of the coins I use for jewelry. I really enjoy the educational component of my work.
