I have been trying Idaho Beauty’s formula for pricing the art quilts that I want to sell at our neighborhood art sale in November.
She suggested $1 per square inch as a rough guideline. I don’t have to pay a commission to sell them and I do live in central PA which is certainly not NYC. So I deducted out about 40% for that. I also thought about how much work went into them.
This is what I have come up with so far. Let me know if these look fair and not too low or too high. I do not want to give them away.
“Orange Sky at Night” 19 in by 27 in.
“Forest Cathedral” 15 in by 21 in
“Paris Rooftops” 18 in by 26 in
“Spiritual Sanctuary” 23 in by 37 in
What do you think? Input is much appreciated.
Also do people typically try to negotiate the price at an art show?
Thanks for reading and commenting.
