Done. Thought the upper end on what is an expensive hand-made holster was pretty low.

Done. I filled it out thinking more along the lines of a leather holster than a kydex one. To me kydex holsters are a dime a dozen, a good looking one is harder to find and worth more though. Leather is a different story and a correctly (read - well) made leather holster is as everyone has said long to wait for and expensive. I love leather but right now I can only afford kydex and only 2 holsters at that, one for each gun. You still owe us pictures of your work! Maybe not prices but at least pictures.
Is this going back more future than we were?
We don't react, we respond.
There is one problem in particular that I see hobbyist holstermakers encounter when they try to turn their hobby into a business. There are a number of excellent holstermakers out there, but few of them are good business people, too. You have to be both. If you are good, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the orders.
You can make the best holster in the world, but if you don't deliver when you say you will, it will poison your business. Excellent holstermakers are always in demand. Please don't overbook. I hate it when airlines do it. I hate to see it even more when holstermakers do it, and then can't meet their production deadlines. If you are going to keep taking business, please be honest about when the work will be completed.
Please don't tell the customer that the holster will be shipped out, unless it will - please don't lie. We've heard every empty promise and every excuse. It is embarrassing to the holstermaker. It is embarrassing to us. Nothing exhausts our goodwill faster than this.
Please don't hide from us. Answer your business mail, email and phone messages in a timely fashion. Remember that most of us want to see you succeed. As with most craft specialists, you are much harder on yourself than anyone else.
Watch your budget. Maintain your component inventory, so you don't run out of critical components. Don't let your finished work pile up; instead, ship out promptly. Process payments promptly - don't let them pile up, undeposited. Pay your accounts payable on time.
Just read this holster forum for some object lessons.
Thanks and good luck.

did survey, continued success.
Alrighty then! I did the best I could although as other members have pointed out, it's entirely conditional. In short, I believe a lot of folks will pay more than a hundred bucks if the quality is good. Conversely, those that cost over 200 tend to draw a smaller crowd. Likewise, I'm not inclined to wait indefinitely for the privilege of owning a designer variant.
