Almost Wordless Wednesday

Here comes some more wordless.

I'm working on a fundraiser for Winnie's Wish and I'd like a little feed back. I'm planning cat beds but there are a couple ways I can do them. Should I give options for flat mats or regular beds or will that just confuse things?
The beds I'm making are flannel, but I also just started making some cute crocheted beds. Should I make them separate fundraisers? One now and one after Christmas?
All of my past fundraisers have been $15, but the beds take a little more material costs, is $20 too much for a home made cat bed or should I go $18? You know that everything above material and postage goes to Winnie's Wish but I also want to keep the price reasonable for everyone who is interested. Any feedback would be appreciated.
The fundraiser will probably start next week, if not this weekend.
Thank you!!

I would pay $20.00 for the cause.

I think $20 is fair for a handcrafted cat bed. You could check out similair products on Etsy and see what they charge. Good luck raising money for Winnie's Wish.

$20 is fine... and if you offer both types, I'll be ordering both. I think you should do whatever is easiest for you. I love your work!!

I doubt the difference between 18 and 20 and even 25 would matter that much in terms of driving away sales due to price.

I'd probably limit the options since you don't have a professional ordering system set up...although Eetsy could give you that I suppose. I'm not sure how hard that is to get started or if there are costs involved.

maybe do the flat flannel ones now and others in the spring?? and we think $20 is good

$20 is more than fair for a good cat bed! Especially when it is for a good cause. Whichever type of bed you go with, I am sure it will be a winner for Winnie's Wish.

Can you keep in mind also that there are potential buyers overseas and we will have to pay postage to whatever destination!

Either one of those beds sounds good to us. We always have use for any kind of bed for this crowd around here. I think $20.00 is a very fair price.

The Island Cats said...

We agree with the others. $20 is a reasonable price for a nice cat bed.

I think $20 is a very fair price. I don't know how hard it would be to offer two items (flannel mat/pad and crocheted beds) as I don't know if you make to order? My only suggeston is to maybe not do a holiday pattern or color scheme so they can be sold and used year round.

$ 20.00 seems fair...

$20.00 is very reasonable Andrea! And we think if you can do both beds that would be nice for variety...we like the idea of a crocheted one ourselves :) You can never have too many bed, right ? ;)

We agree with The Critters. Both would be great and $20.00 is more than fair. We are in!
