Assorted Little Bags

i have been busy trying to build up an inventory of bags because i am considering opening up an etsy shop. i am sure most crafters know what etsy is... if you don't, i think you should definitely check it out ( www.etsy.com ).

i have never sold anything on etsy... but have bought a few things... and have spent hours drooling over all of the handmade unique goodies on the site! there are a lot of creative folks out there!

anyway... so here are pics of my bags... i would love to get some feedback on pricing and styling... don't worry, i am not "thin-skinned"... i can take it... so please feel free to comment on the blog or email me... also... any advice on the etsy process would be appreciated!

This first one is a little fulled (felted) bag... it measures about 7" x 5"... it has a little front pocket and the closure is a vintage button. it's just a little bag for when you don't want to carry a big purse.
Here is a view of the back >>>>

Next is a small little acrylic bag...
(sorry about picture quality... i definitely need to practice!) On my monitor, the first pic is close to the actual color... it is a variegated blue colorway... it has a small "granny square" front pocket that is just the right size for a cell phone or an mp3 player; and a slightly larger area for a small purse or wallet. the front pocket closes with a shiny, sparkly vintage button, while the other compartment closes with a vintage button that is kind of an ivory color.
this bag is one of my favorites... the strap is made to sling over your shoulder... it is 100% acrylic... it is a little larger (about 8" long)... it has a buttoned pocket in front and a button closure on the backside for the larger compartment... it's black with a variegated colorway of purples, blues & teals.

this one is probably my absolute favorite of this batch of bags... it is mostly acrylic ... but the pink is woolease yarn which contains a small amount of wool...it is embellished with wooden beads and plastic buttons.
all of these bags are unlined.
what do you think?

They're all great girlie. I am so bad at pricing my stuff. Therefore I am a bit apprehensive about giving you advice with regard to this matter. I will defer to the next commenter.

oh...uh, i guess that would be me. i don't know about pricing either. things that i sold at craft fairs, didn't sell in shops and vice versa. no rhyme or reason to price or location if you ask me. but i do love the small bags - very cute. that's what a i wrote to say:)
