First off…pricing. I mean, how do you know what to price your items?!! When I look around on Etsy to research, I am just blown away. I mean – do people calculate an hourly wage for themselves at all? Just cost of materials alone does not give one a going rate for a finished product. GAH. I have this irrational fear that I should be marking my things at the lowest price, the price you could buy it for at Target, just so people will buy them.
Luckily I was able to find a few good articles to help guide me in that direction, as well as answering a couple of other questions I had including wholesale vs. retail pricing. You can find them here:

Another biggie is display. Trying to figure out how we, me and my friend Karen of Fancy Fonts, are going to set up one little teeny tiny 6 foot table. Lots of ideas out there to get me going in the right direction though…

I know I wanted to start small for my very first one, so I got the 6 foot table underneath the awning. But of course now I am wondering if I should have went bigger.
