i think they just go to the boutiques and ask if they would like to buy bows wholesale..? thats what Im going to do with some of the local shops, but im going to make sure my bows are *perfect* before I do so and Im going to master the twisted boutique layered bow! Because if the customers arent happy at that boutique with the products they purchase, not only will you loose business but the owner of the boutique will too!

I went into a little shop downtown with my daughter who was sporting one of my bows, and flip flops, and asked them if they would be interested in carrying my bows. They asked me to bring in an example of all the bows I can make along with a price list. Now I am getting orders from them every 2 weeks and they are setting up a display with my contact info for custom orders!

When yo sell them wholesale what percent do you give them.?thanks for answering so many questions.Im probably thinking way ahead of myself i just started making bows but i want to have a goal to motivate me more...after i had my last baby i had post partem depression for about 8 months and after being of meds i sometimes fell sad and i found that keeping busy is helping me a lot.

I have been bringing in samples & asking for managers. If they aren't there, I leave them with a business card. So far I have been very successful with this approach.I have 6 stores I sell at, 2 are 2nd hand kids stores, 3 are very expensive boutiques, and the other one is a gift shop. I just got a $1000 for the boutique's (1 store, 3 locations) last Wednesday, finished it today, and now she wants to place another "small" order with me. She said this order was small also. haha I have put together a vendor pricing list so they know my prices up front also.

I take several samples to the store, along with a sheet with all my prices. I've sent a few packages to out of town boutiques and let them know that even if they were not interested that the bows were theirs to keep. I've gotten a lot of orders that way.

I don't change my prices for them, they just charge more so thay make a profit. A bow that I seel them for 4 they sell for 6!
