Default Re: You gals are gonna love this one!

I have been doing this for nearly 4 years. I had an etsy store ever so briefly. I do not have a website either and I have been approached (sp?) by boutiques BUT... I do a few shows...I'm telling you word of mouth is the everything it will make you or break you. You have to put yourself out there. The reason I won't put my stuff in a store is because I would have to charge what the store did per the agreement. I will not charge somebody $12.00 for a bow that I have $1.75 in cost and 20 minutes time to make. My personal business approach is if I am not willing to pay it to put in on my child I will not ask my clients to pay it for their kids but that is me.
Now the chick who is selling her clips for $8.00 I say go girl if you can get people to buy them more power to you. Be honest though as far as weaving the ribbon etc cause you know what they say about karma...
