market research

Last night I toyed around with a new craft idea:

blue = josh and shan; yellow = heather

I came up with three different setups that each hold three keys, and I’m thinking of selling them in kits:

  • Base piece
  • Your choice of three key rings (I have 6 different colours)
  • Your choice of magnetic or adhesive backing

If you saw someone with a great rack selling these (and my lego necklaces) at a local craft fair, would you be interested? What would you consider a fair price? Help me, internet. Be my market research.

If it helps, each kit could come with free Smuttons! Hang your keys, get some porn! Everybody wins!

  1. We live far far away but for the purpose of market research…
    * I love them and would pay up to $20.
    * Nerdy husband also likes it and said he’d pay $15, but after I read the great rack bit he said he might negotiate higher. :)

  2. I would SO get keychains! I don’t know the base price of LEGOS, but if I made them I’d charge perhaps 2$ for a keychain, and 5$ for a block, then you can do the “3 keychains and a block” system at 10$ to encourage people with a little “discount”. I would also request — should you be willing to part with any of them — necklaces and/or keychains made from your LEGO peoples. Of course they won’t stick to the block, but they’d still be super awesome. It seems that most necklace/keychain items sell on Etsy for mostly around 10$, but you probably could go more if they were rarer pieces, as some seem to go for 20-25$. (This is all American, so adjust prices accordingly.)
