Mr. Steamer: My price for a standard 7' 3 cushion couch starts a@ $75. Most get done for that.  But there are exceptions. Sectionals start @$125. The thing that really pisses me off is I was getting $60. for that same couch over fifteen years ago. The same ones were advertising $60. for a couch and chair that advertise that price today. They were liars then and they are liars today.Guitar

A true business man has to know when to walk from a call...

If you give 1 person a deal... they tell 50 of there close friends... and you'll have a hell of a time selling anything at the right price

I agree with Steamer in a big way on this issue. Personally, I hated doing upholstery because the pricing was too low for the effort. However, if I were to do it all over again (today) I would just set my price and go for it. If I was too high on a bid, let the other guy slave away.

 

Good Fortune to all;
