It is from an Etsy seller...


Under-priced items have you concerned?
have you lost money you should have earned?

To another seller who prices so low
for all of their time there is nothing to show

The answer of course is unknown for sure
did one of your customers bite at their lure?

But allow me to give you some food for thought
perhaps things are best with the prices you've got

pricing the lowest may not win the sale
it's not all buyers want in each case without fail

unless you are selling supplies such as beads
quality craftmanship is what each buyer needs

assuming your content and pictures are great
the question is how will your product rate

next to a listing that is underpriced
will your sales be stolen by prices so sliced?

If what you are selling requires a skill
and if it's on Etsy it most likely will

then your price tells more than what they should pay
confidence in workmanship you also display

the time you invested into your piece
will appear to be more than the one priced the least

when buying a commercially produced doodad
comparing just price will make buyers glad

but when dealing with makers of handcrafted wares
a price that's too low may only get stares

"Surely they couldn't have worked very hard
perhaps the seller is a fat lazy lard

I'ld rather pay money for items that last"
They'll say as they remember stuff bought in the past

oh sure there are buyers who buy just whats cheap
inside their closets there is most likely a heap

of broken items long since discarded
but not in the closets of those who are guarded

discerning buyers are those that you need
who see that your price is not fueled by greed.

those buyers are out there don't think that they're not
Etsy is probably their favorite spot

So make sure your description and pictures show
the work you invested so the buyers know

It's worth it to buy from your quality store
even when paying a few dollars more
