Because if I would be dependent of it then I would be bankrupt very soon. Like many artistic people are poor in finance side of business, forgive me my assumptions. I am perfect example.
I spend a lot of time on my makes but almost newer count it in the price of the final product. I find excuse that this is only hobby for me and indeed it is. It is very therapeutic and relaxing for me.
The tend to tell myself it's not that difficult to make. I know! But it takes a lot of time and attention to detail. It is easy for me because I know what I want to achieve with numerous layers of paint and sanding it off and off again.
Customer might not look for cheap product but for quality piece. And real proper quality item might not just come across like one if it is priced wrong.

So do not to be afraid to put a price on your stuff, Dace! :))))
