Default Can someone give me a suggestion please...

on what price to put on these clippies and korkers. I have never sold any of my stuff. I made the korker with the heart for my daughter and a mom at Jake's preschool asked me to make a Valentine's Day bow for her. Any suggestions what I should ask? I don't want to ask too much or too little.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for responding...the korkers are about 3" at the widest part. I use anywhere from 16-20 pieces of ribbon to make them poofy.

do you mean the actual korker bow or the clippie accented w/ korkers. for the clippies I would do $3.00 and the korkers I would say about 6.00 for one or 11.00 for a pair. I would pay that for them.

My korkers like that are $4 each.

My clippies that are sorta "fancy" like that- are $2-$3 each. Depending on how much it cost for the top.

So much of this depends on where you live. Plus, you have to define your market. Is it local or online?

I live in the southern-most tip of TX. Moms I know usually buy the bows at stores, boutiques, etc. I don't see too many little ones wearing custom bows at my son's preschool. I never planned on selling any of my bows, but a parent of my son's classmate asked if I could make a set for her daughter and what would I charge her for it. I am hesitant, but I do get compliments from other moms on the korkers & clippies.

It would be local. A lot of these moms also buy/make crafts like jewerly, pillowcase dresses, bottlecap jewerly, etc., but no bows that I know of.

There wasn't a big demand for bows around here until I started to make them. Then EVERYONE says- I HAVE to have that! Where idd you get it? Oh.. well I just happen to make them! Swoop! Here's my card!

I'd check out the price at the boutiques and go from there. I am not familiar with TX so I don't know what the market will bear.

No one wears custom bows @ our preschool, just basic single layer grosgrain. Unless it's a holiday, then you might get something more interesting in a print or pattern. I can honestly say that I have never seen anyone wearing a multi layered fancy bow in person. They are beautiful, but for me not practical from a business standpoint unless I wanted to sell OL. It's all about knowing your market.
