so tell me what about your time? you wholesale for the cost of materials PLUS the cost to replace... so you are working for FREE!!! BAD bow lady bad!
you and every OTHER bow lady that is working like this need to STOP IT! you should be wholesaling at 3-4x cost and retailing at 6-10x cost
YOUR TIME IS $$$ when you work for free you reduce everyones business. and then you become discouraged that you arent making any money and are always needing to buy supplies
LOL, no, I'm not working for free. I add in an amount depending on what I'm making, to my cost of making my items. It all goes together to come up with the final "cost of the item" that I then multiply by 2 or 4. I should have clarified that. I'm not working for free, I have too many kids to do that!
