Some people will be put off, if the price is too low!
Sounds daft, I know, but here's a little tale about prices.
A cousin of mine once ran a gift shop, and she had a particular item that did not sell. When the 'commercial traveller' (can't think of the appropriate modern word right now) returned, she told him to take back her stock, as the article did not sell. He couldn't understand, as they were very popular elsewhere ... Then he looked at the price and told her she was selling too cheaply!
I think she (almost) doubled the price, changing the item instantly into something desirable. They flew off the shelves.
Maybe you can emphasise the fact they pay good money because they are buying quality, and not cheap 'tat.'
The people going for the cheapies, are not the ones you're aiming at.
As Kezpock said, your photos are good.
Offer a special one for double, or even triple the price, just as an experiment. You never know!
'Talk it up' a bit, (looking for something really special for Christmas?), then just wait and see.
