    Default The What Would You Charge Thread...

    Hi Everyone,
    Well I'm off to a local event where I'm going to (try) selling some honey. I usually just give this stuff away to family and friends, but I have a little extra. What would you charge for this jar (it's just a standard queenline glass). Also be a little critical... e.g. does it look good/bad/tacky/etc.
    Many Thanks, Matthew
    PS I do know my writing has a typo with the parentheses... that has been taken care of.

    Looks good, kinda of a rich feeling with the gold. I charge $4.00 for 16 oz.

    Well Schmidt, I don`t see anything wrong with the jar per se. But the honey looks like it`s starting to crystallize already (as per your warning on the top). I would heat it up before selling it. Also, the jar is not full. Up here in Ottawa we get 8.00 to 10.00 dollars for a kilo (2.2 lbs) for grade A white.

    Default mispelling

    "Northern" is miss-spelled on the lid.

    It's right. Nowthen, Minnesota is a community by that name; somewhat 'north' of Minneapolis I guess. That would have been awful if all those nice labels had been misspelled. The honey looks good to me.

    I charge $5 per lb plus the price of the glass container. I figure the glass costs me almost a dollar each once I include the shipping, so for that jar I'd charge $6.

    In keeping with the green movement, I offer folks $1 off their next purchase if they bring me back the jar. I just toss the lids and run them (the jars) thru the dishwasher and use them again.

    I also agree with the previous post, that the jar is not properly filled. It should be above the line and weigh a minimum of 1 lb. Some honey is more concentrated and therefore more dense, so I just barely fill to the line in that case and assure people that they weigh out properly.

    Laws vary by state, but in NC the weight must be on the label.
