Default Have you ever sold bows to your kids schoolmates?

My son came up to me telling me that some girls at school would buy bows from me. He wanted me to make some pony-o's in the school colors and I was even thinking about printing the school logo on some ribbon.

Have any of you ever sold bows through your child? My son is very smart, he wants a cut of the money! LOL... He is 12 and in junior high, so it's teens and pre-teens that he goes to school with.

I am wondering if I should do it... they would only be a couple dollars each if I did...

Any thoughts? Advice?

Make a couple for free. It's great advertising.

I put clips in my son's birthday goody bags that I was required to send to his class. I didn't get any orders from it, but I did notice some of the girls wearing them over the next week or 2.

That is how I got started. A friend of mine is a long term sub at my son's school. The first set of bows I made (about 20) she made me put in a basket with prices. She walked the boys into school the next day and she sold every bow within 10 minutes, along with a bunch of orders totaling $200!!! When one of the girl's in his class has a birthday she gets a personalized bow holder with a hair bow.

I say go for it and it wouldn't hurt to throw in a few free ones for him to pass out just so they can wear them and spread the word for you. My dd is only 3, but for Christmas, I made the girls in her class matching bows for their school colors.
