Default Do you sell boutique stacked bows at craft shows?

If so, do they sell well, or are most people just going for the basic ones.

I have never done a craft show but I know if I did decide to I will be offering stacked bows. I took my dd Fri to a huge event and there was not one booth that had bows. Lots of cute kid clothing but no bows. We kept getting ooo's and awe's every isle we went down because of dd's bow. It gave us the idea of possibly having a booth next year. I did hand out business cards.

They didn't sell well for me but I'm in Ohio where the love of big fancy bows just isn't there. What I'm doing this year is doing just a few sets in the popular colors. Pink/white, black/hot pink, pink/brown, hot pink/zebra, and patriotic. I always put a sign about custom made bows made to match any outfit.

I really think it's where you are located. It's a toss up.

I include a few but I have found in my area folks are looking for basics.

I agree(I am in southern Ohio) and most people want basic bows. I did havea few on display, but like Barbara I put a sign out that I take custom orders. I think for my next show I am going have a bg binder with pics of my more elaborate bows so people can see.

I sell them...but I always have a variety. Some people don't like the big ones and some people love them. Just do a handful to start and see how they go
