Default Fall Bows

Has anyone tried selling bows in fall colors (orange, brown, yellow, olive...)? I know that Halloween bows go like crazy, but what about general fall stuff? I love fall so I couldn't help myself and bought some fall color ribbon & bow centers (sunflowers, leaves...) today. Now I'm wondering if anyone would buy them because they most likely won't match many outfits. Should I take them back and start saving for Christmas ribbon? And how about Thanksgiving/turkeys? Thanks for any advice--I could ask my dh, but I think we all know what his opinion would be.

Here in the south (where I am) we don't celebrate Halloween. (weird to me cuz I am from the north.. but when in Rome....) We have fall festival instead. I have heard time and time again that people are looking for bows with a fall theme- NOT Halloween related. I say go ahead and make the bows!

I sell most of my turkeys in October.

Where do you live? I have friends in AL and in New Orleans and GA and they all celebrate Halloween.

I live in central MS. Out here in the country NO ONE celebrates Halloween- we all have a fall festival thru the different churches. I am already planning ours now.

I do not do the whole Halloween thing either- But I love fall and I am making fall colors and people are already buying them! We do a lot of Fall festivals here too. People do celebrate Halloween, but more and more people are doing just fall colors- I could not resist though and made a candy corn bow for Chloe- The best thing about October is Candy Corn...lol

I'm in the pacific northwest and halloween is huge here too!!! I had no clue there was ANYWHERE in the U.S. that didn't celebrate Halloween!!

I think the fall bows would be cute! I would just go by whatever colors the kids clothes are in the more popular stores in your town.

Halloween is huge here in my area of TX, too. All the churches have fall festival, but everyone else does Halloween.

As for the fall bows, I bought some leaves and fall colored ribbon, too. So we shall see!
