Most of my income comes from weekend art/farmers markets where I sell mainly turned work (bowls).I've learned that you need to have a bell curve of prices from cheap to extravagant with the majority falling in the middle-class affordable range.
I've always struggled with the $20 cheap range.If you don't have a selection of goods at low prices you lose mid-priced sales from the uneducated.These people will always ask, 'How much are your bowls?' That's what life has trained them to do.
If your answer is only about the eye-catching masterpiece that caught their attention, the price will scare them off from everything else.They'll bolt after platitudes.The ability to say, 'Our bowls range from the $20 range on up to several hundred,' gives you the opportunity to talk, educate and build value.
You can talk about the process, differences in design/species, discover their personal needs and plant gift ideas.Because they don't bolt you have the opportunity to sell.But, if your low-priced items are obvious cr*p then they will lower the perceived value of the entire booth.
A decent bowl takes hours to make so in no way you can make a bowl to your best...
