I'm sorry your meeting didn't go well! I think you should start ordering your ribbon online instead of walmart if you want to make a bigger profit. I sell my bows to 4 boutiques here in Charlotte. 2 of them are consignment so I get 50% of their retail prices. They sell my bows for a lot more than I do so I actually get paid the same as I charge or more. I get a check every month from both shops. For the other 2 shops they buy everything upfront so I sell for half price. I sell a 4 inch bow on mynsite for $4 and I sell it to the 2 shops for $2.00. I only spend about .25 to make each bow so to me it is worth it. They also buy at least $300 worth at a time. I don't put anything on cards. I started out hanging everything on ribbon strips and now I just take bows and they hang them. Maybe you could tell her that you could give her a better price but she would have to provide the cards to hang them or hang the on ribbon strips. If she doesn't go for it then that's her loss.
