Love that wallet.
It's beautiful. Some of it is a bit... I don't want to say messy exactly, but you can tell its hand made. But it is still very functional, of course, so it does its purpose and has some flair, too. But I wouldn't price it at what most costumized leather is priced at; I'd shoot a little lower.
Overall, though, it's nice and I can tell you've put some work into these. They look made right. Look at what stores around you are charging, what you need to make, and go from there.
Also, I ADORE the wallet. Now that I'd expect to cost good money.
Knife and gun holsters.
Custom made tapaderos.
The tripping collar.. I've seen them go for $200 and they didn't look as good as those. Beautiful work.
If you guys ever need a fun quick project dip can holsters the people in my area love them!
And the gun holsters you could get about $200 for them too.
I need to figure the tax going out. I was told that since we pay taxes on the leather and hardware initially, that we can choose not to charge tax and therefore won't need to pay taxes on finished products. I need to look into this.
Everything will have little faults due to being hand made. We try our hardest to make things as flawless as possible.
Just to give an idea of cost.
The tooled chaps cost about $175 in just material. The tooling took about 7 or 8 hours total.
The wallet cost about $25 in material and took less than an hour to tool.
I hadn't even thought about that. Someone asked for a nice pouch to be made for his E Cigarette a while back. But it was before we did our own stuff and my boss turned him away.
I've made them for my brother and his friends and they love them. They turned out good for me so I can just imagine if you guys make some they would be great! They take very little leather and they're really fun to make!
I would expect to pay north of $500 for custom chaps in general up to 1000.
The wallets and holsters and such you could easily get 50-100 for I'm sure.
The breast collars are nice. A leather breast collar like that is going to run you 100-200 dollars anyway. I'd imagine you could go up from there for custom.
Don't sell yourself short. Custom stuff has a lot of value. Horse folks are proud and they are picky. If you can establish a name for yourself by turning out good products, word of mouth will keep you busy.
That wallet I expected about eighty.
