How do you price bottle stoppers

Well here's my new addiction now I need to find a way to pay for it. What's a ball park price for something like these. 3 are black ash burl with high quality stoppers. The other is oak and black walnut with a cork. They all have 5 coats of tung oil. Thanks for the help. I have looked on etsy and eBay and the prices vary so much

I do pretty good with a $15-$20 price for stoppers. Using just regular PSI chrome ones. Stainless and the price goes up accordingly.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

A rule to start with is price of materials times 3. Then adjust from there. Obviously this doesn't apply all of the time, but its a good starting point.
