Candle pricing
« on: January 20, 2008, 12:12:37 PM »
What is the criteria for pricing candles? Are they priced by weight, design or other and what would be the going rate?

The PBC Beekeepers at the fair is selling votive candles for $1.50 Skep mold candles are $5.00.
Taper candles I believe are around $7.00

weight plays a big part in pricing here.  votive candles go for about $1.20 each.  beewax color also affects price.  those coming from cappings cost more, maybe $1.50 up.
