So I did my first show this past weekend. My inventory was VERY holiday heavy as it was a Christmas fair. I sold about half of my holiday inventory. The funny thing was of the big holiday bows, I sold ALL the biggest and most expensive ones. The low-priced holiday stuff did NOT sell. Otherwise, people only bought the cheapest items, solid and dot bows priced to move at $3. I also sold a lot of clippies.
There was one other hair bow vendor that had only very basic bows and then lots of fancy clips with feathers, flowers, etc. She even said my bows were a lot nicer than hers, but she sold a TON more because they were so cheap. She had nothing fancy at all and nothing over $5. (some of my big OTT and holiday bows went up to $8)
So my take is that people here will pay more for the holiday bows but not for general OTT bows
