Default Shoe Bows??

I need ideas for shoe bows, preferably removable ones. I worked a bazaar this weekend, and had a Texas lady ask for bows to put on shoes with bells in the middle. She said that they were really big in Texas where's she from. BTW, I am a military spouse in Germany. I mean, I've seen the flip flops with the bows attached permanently. What kind of clip should I use, and where the heck do I buy bells?

I think they use something like this for the bows on shoes.

Not sure what type of bells....I've seen some at our local craft store.

You can also get them on eBay. Search for shoe clip blanks.

For the bells, I'd just wonder if they'd be CPSIA compliant which would apply if you're selling on base, right?

In what city are you located? We're not with the military, but lived in Stuttgart for 3 years.

I made show clips using clip-on earring blanks from Hobby Lobby--my girls needed them for a wedding. They worked great!

I have no idea what you ladies are talking about. Would you put a link or picture that shows these changeable shoe bows?

I have used the blanks (purchased on etsy) my only issue is that they weren't very comfortable! I added little chiffon puffs to my flats, but had to take them off after a while. Maybe I put them on wrong though lol
