Hi everyone! I am thinking of advertising a Holiday Cookie tray but I am having a hard time deciding on a price to charge. I read over past posts, from last year, but realize the cost of ingredients have gone up since then. I am going to offer 5 choices and they can choose 4 dozen (mix or match specialty cookies, not my decorated sugar cookies). For in town delivery, I would put on a tray and wrap the tray pretty..for out of town, I would ship. The posts I read last year , someone who sold trays similiar to what I am offering, charged 25.00. I was thinking of charging $40.00 but I don't want to over price them. If anyone has any thoughts, please share them with me Thank you!

For the trays, look into buying plastic chargers from Michaels or Hobby Lobby or whatever your local big craft store is. They periodically have them on sale for about $1, they're pretty, and they're big! I use mine all the time, but I've never once used them as an actual charger!post #5 of 1411/20/12 at 6:52am
I just started selling holiday treat trays as well. Here is a link to what mine look like and my pricing. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.432022993513731.88361.255263994522966&type=3
I based my pricing compared to the local grocery store but then charged more because they are fancier and home-made. Hope this helps you some!post #6 of 1411/20/12 at 10:15ampost #7 of 1411/20/12 at 5:29pmpost #8 of 1411/20/12 at 5:38pmpost #9 of 1412/2/12 at 3:42pmpost #10 of 1412/3/12 at 9:32pmpost #11 of 1412/4/12 at 4:27am
If selling treats is a hobby, then borrowing a price structure is fine. But if you're in business, it's important to price all your products based on your own costs. Otherwise you might be paying customers to buy your baked goods. I realize that pricing based on what fellow CC'ers charge is the easiest way to set prices, but learning how to accurately determine customer price will help your business remain profitable.post #12 of 1412/4/12 at 4:29ampost #13 of 1412/8/12 at 11:45ampost #14 of 1412/11/12 at 9:29am
