I just returned from dinner at a local Chinese food restaurant where my husband and I shared a main and entre to the tune of $35.00. Not an unusual price for this sort of meal.
This is a meal that is consumed in about 30 minutes and will be GONE by tomorrow.
I’ve priced my mugs at $35.00 and actually wondered if that was too high.
My mugs are handmade – thrown individually – glazed with my specially developed glaze, fired twice, then decorated further with decals and gold lustre and fired a third time. There is no way that the price can be completely calculated, but it would be high – not even counting the time that I don’t even charge for…
This mug can be used multiple times, give great enjoyment and is aesthetically pleasing.
So why don’t people see that value?
We all constantly pay for meals in the $50-70.00 range and don’t think any thing about it.
But paying $50-70.00 for a plate is considered expensive…why??
I’m sure you each have had these same thoughts…I just needed to vent today.
