My wife and I recently bought a lot of peice parts for a show and
sale we are going to shortly. We have been discussing how to pro rate
the freight and our labour costs to arrive at a fair selling price
for each peice. We want to try to capture the true costs for freight,
labor and customs duties plus our time to make each peice. We are
also making some pendants, earring and broaches from PMC I bought
locally in addition to the inported parts.
We are concerned that simply dividing freight cost by the number of
parts would not work as some are valuable natural stones and or
silver parts and others are less valuable parts like rubber cord
If anyone has a good formula or ideas on how to valuate the
different parts as to their finished sale costs or perceived value
for resale we would be appreciative.
