Default Non- handmade items for shows

I am building up my inventory to do my first craft show in December. I have a couple of questions, what items do you sell that you didn't make? Do you make your own bow bands or order them? What about Kufi's? I want to buy from the cheapest place but I am afraid of quality so I thought I would ask and see who has ordered from where and what their quality was.


I've lurked here and even learned to make by first bows by tutorials here and after making an over abundance of bows for my daughters and having everyone ask where I got them I decided to make cards and when people ask I hand them my card. It somehow turned from a hobby to a small little business. Which is OK by me. I am a stay at home mom and it is nice to get a little bit of income.


Thanks for your help

The only things I sell that are not handmade are my crochet headbands,and kufi hats.

Most craft shows around here only allow strictly handmade items.

I make almost everything I sell,and if I cant make something I turn to the girls on hipgirls. So technically everything is handmade by someone jsut not me hahaha

And for the kufi hats and crochet headbands,I recommend Halo Heaven,there quality is nice, and about the same as everyone else.
And there prices are amazing,except the shipping.

Thank you! Those were my main things I am in need of that I don't make myself. I was just on their website, the shipping price seems high but the prices of the items really make up for it. How is the quality?

Same with me. I did order some Kufi's from Halo Heaven, and I was happy with the quality, but they shorted me two black Kufis . I sent an email a few days ago, and ofcourse haven't heard back. I doubt I will ever order from them again.

I order kufi's from Polkadot wholesale for my beanies. I just got in my order and it was fabulous. I tried one of those lower price places and the quality, and what I had to do to them to make them saleable was not worth saving a few cents.

I usually buy my kufi's from polkadot wholesale there good quality but lately haven't had in stock some of the things I've been needing. I will continue to order though. Ribbon Retreat has kufi's too but they are a little more. They too are good quality but have been out of things i've been needing.
