Default How well to woven your woven headbands sell?

Here comes another question I have for all of you experts (whom I have adopted as my mentors!). How well do your woven headbands sell? I have made several for my DD and had a couple of moms ask about them when they saw the one my DD wore to church. I was just wondering if it would be well worth my time (and investment) to begin making these in mass quantities. I think they are adorable, but I have come to learn in recent times that just because I might LOVE something...doesn't necessarily mean everyone else will. What is your experience with selling these headbands?
Let me just say that this is the BEST forum EVERRRRRRRR! The information, resources, and advise that you all give has been of great value to me. Thank you, my mentors, for taking your time to help those of us who are still learning. You are the best!

I just started making them about a month ago, and I've sold quite a few. Don't make too many, but do make sure that you make school colors and holiday colors, those have been my best sellers

At my last craft show I sold 14 which was all but 1 that I brought with me. I also made bows to go with them and laid them together so I could point out that they could get a coordinating bow and have 2 in 1!

I love making them to so I dont mind And the ones I dont sell my DD's try to take and usually win LOL

I made over 100 this summer. I have 10 left after 3 craft shows. I would say they sell well! I get $9 for mine which is way more than I see others sell them for. I started them at $8 but they sold too fast.

I have gotten lots of color ideas from m2m headband sites. I sold lots of light pink with white and shocking pink with white. I also sell lots of navy with white. I sold out of Halloween and I am sure Christmas will be the same. Oh - navy, pink and white
Now my brain is spinning with color combos
olive, off white, coral, and tan
navy and apple green
dark orchid and white (dots or no dots)
mystic blue and light blue
I could go on . . . .
