I am hesitant, but I do get compliments from other moms on the korkers & clippies.

I'd check out the price at the boutiques and go from there. I am not familiar with TX so I don't know what the market will bear.

No one wears custom bows @ our preschool, just basic single layer grosgrain. Unless it's a holiday, then you might get something more interesting in a print or pattern. I can honestly say that I have never seen anyone wearing a multi layered fancy bow in person. They are beautiful, but for me not practical from a business standpoint unless I wanted to sell OL. It's all about knowing your market.
