$10 isn't unreasonable.. the $30 bows are insane!

I will say that so many people try to be the cheapest and it really does screw over a lot of people. Same with tutus. When I spend an hour making something I don't want to sell it for $4 otherwise, I might as well go work at McDonalds and make more money.

Also, the titles on them were 'wedding', people will pay a fortune for their wedding.

If they have found a niche group who is willing to pay prices like this more power to them. I'd rather sale less quantity and make a bigger profit than more quantity for less profit. If you find the happy medium between the two you can make more money than the one who is going crazy with back orders and is still making little to no profit.

A few years back "custom designed" anything was bringing big money. Gals in groups like the Bow Betties and Bow Chicks made lots. They did quality work and their bows were beautiful.
Thats when all the groups were really into custom boutique clothing too.
A little girl named Sophie was doing modeling for people and it was not unusual for the outfits she modeled to make into the hundreds. Everyone wanted her to model their things. Do a google search for 'My Angel Sophie'...cute girl and great modeling.
The whole custom boutique thing has died down but it sure was fun while it lasted.

Wow, I saw the two at $30 and noticed it was same price on both, fishy. This person has too much time on their hands if they can list something then bid on it themselves to push up the price.
