Wow! Why are you doing this? It doesn't sound like you need to sell baskets to pay the rent, so if you're just doing them for the entertainment or leisure time value then I guess any money you make you should just consider free money. At least you're making some money here -- my leisure time is spent flyfishing, and since I'm a catch-and-release freak I can't even sell the fish to help support my "entertainment."

If you really are trying to make some $$$, then spend some time figuring out how efficiently you can make them, and then price them accordingly -- either your customers will appreciate the time and handwork that went into their creation, or you should take up another hobby.
