Default Are you guys selling lined alligator clips at shows?

I have searched on here and saw that you ladies sell lined clips for $1.50 at the shows...are these just regular alligator clips? I use the single prong alligator clips and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to line some and put them in a basket at a show. Thanks in advance!!

Try it. I had a bunch sell one show & almost none the next. If they don't sell you can always just add a bow to them.

I've heard alot of people say that they have sold them. I think some even grouped 3 or 4 clips together and sold them as a set for about $5-6.00

I seen that Target is now selling lined alligator clips. They come in a box of 4 for $9.99. So I definitely give it a try at a craft show.

I don't sell the plain ones. Just don't sell well. I sell the big ole bows mostly esp. loopy bows and also headbands. I do some embellished clips all of which I sell in pairs lately or in sets of a few, never just plain though.

I sell a ton of these! I use the American Crafts box sets and sell them in a set of 6 for $5.50 or singles for a $1. The area I live in has a very low cost of living so I couldn't get much more then that for them.

I made a bunch with extra ribbon I had laying around and put them in a basket. Then I bought some little bags from Hobby Lobby and added a sticker with my logo on the bags. I sold each one for a $1.00 and I sold a bunch. People were buying 10-15 at a time.

They do here, in north Louisiana. and in south Arkansas. Have some picks of them on babies, toddlers and big kids (I use them to pull dd's "bangs" that are growing out, out of her face).

I use a double prong alligator clip from sallies beauty supply. I have them in solids, dots, prints, argyle, etc. They work beautifully partially lined on big kids with thicker hair and fully lined on the smaller kids or kids with really fine hair, and you could no-slip grip them if you wanted. I sold more of that this year than bows. I sell them 1.50 each or buy 3 get 1 free. I've not tried selling them in sets yet.
