I'm still figuring out the prices (have to cost out the packaging cos it's slightly different to the bars of soap)
Obviously there would be a discount for TAS members  :thumbsup: and the bars themselves weigh over 150g each (about twice that of a normal bar of soap) and measure about 4 inches x 3 inches x 1 and a quarter inches in size.

Can I get some feedback from you guys on prices please ?  :eyelashes: (I'm a skinflint and everything costs too much  ::) :D :innocent:)
How much would you be happy to pay for this if you saw it somewhere ?

I think they're brill  :thumbsup:

If I were just buying one on whim cos I saw it and it looked cute - maybe £6?

If I were buying repeat orders, I probably wouldn't want the little pig each time but would be happy with ones with a pig outline moulded on the top. So maybe these little pigs would be the ones that would be the eye-catchers and there'd be some plainer, and cheaper/bigger bars along with them.

Just an idea - ignore if barking up the wrong tree  :)

Karen/jaykay, £6 is the price that spring to my mind too.

Factoring in the use of 3 oils (assuming they are EO's?) the price of the piggies and the sheer size of the bar I think £6 is reasonable! Of course if you offer P&P you are looking at £2.70 minimum if your postage costs are same in Scotland as here? That's how much it costs for postage alone on a 100g bar of my soap so you need to add packaging  etc  ;)

Thanks guys  :thumbsup:
£6 is kinda what I was thinking too  ;)

I'll be adding a plain non-pig version at some point I think  :thinking:
