Pearl Buttons are Expensive!

I had to blog about this latest heart when I discovered that similar buttons to the mother-of-pearl button I had used were for sale on this website at 2 euros EACH!


Should I up the price of the hearts? I was going to charge 5 euros 50.

Ooh, I think that's the shop that Niki from Nostalgia at the Stone House visited last summer. It looked great, but...

I saw two buttons like that on French ebay for 2€ yesterday, so that's half her price, but still way too expensive. It's the detailing on them that ratches the price up, presumably. Maybe you should only use the plain ones on your hearts, sadly.

I'm vaguely trying to get hold of some more button cards for my shop, you know... I have a plan...

I guess the price should be what you can expect to get for them. What you don't know is whether that web site gets 2 euros for their buttons or if they are still waiting!

Thank you for popping in to my blog. So glad you like my dress. I think you should definitely increase the price of your hearts, 5.50 euros is only £4.84, way too cheap in my view.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comments.
I think you can raise the price a bit if you use these expensive buttons. I have often been in this shop and love the one of a kind items.
Love the things you made!

Thank you for joining up to follow my blog, I'm very happy to reciprocate!

Your hearts are really lovely and 5 euros seems very reasonable in my opinion. See how it goes.
