Default What site does your bows sell the best on?

I'm only selling on etsy right now, but I thought about trying ebay too. However, I noticed some of you have your own sites.....tell me which way sells best for you and why you chose that way.

Thanks!

Mine sell best off facebook and in store haven't gotten to into etsy yet or ebay. I feel my stuff might just get lost amongst all the others and that I would be paying a lot of money to put up lots. In the shop i am in I don't do consignment yet, right now i pay a flat rate for the month. We desided that it was easier to deside on a low flat rate for a wall. I have almost the whole store now though because they have requested me to bring in more for their picture windows ect.
Anyways I would be interested to see what people say here on where sells best for them as i am still debating the etsy.

$50 a week? Hmmm...I could almost afford to quit teaching afterschool (The THORN in my side!) if I could make $50 bucks a week making bows....

*goes to flip through to phone book to find consignment stores in town*

I have 2 boutiques that sell my bows, plus I do festivals, then by word of mouth. I have alot of email orders and just people coming to the house for bows. but it also helps that my 14yo daughter and 3 granddaughters wears my stuff everyday to school. People are constantly asking them were they got that bow etc.

I sell at a boutique and a consignment shop....then just by word of mouth. I post pics on facebook too and I'll get orders from there. I don't think ebay is worth it just because there are SO many others tring to sell bows on there!

I'm new to facebook. For those of you selling on it, do you use their advertising, join groups, or just post on your page? Please let me know what I need to do. Thank you.

I sold best at boutiques and shows before we moved. (about $50-75 a week)

Unfortunately after moving, no shops out here carry my items.

They tell me "due to the economy...." or "we already carry items like yours..."

I'm doing a Church bazaar in a couple weeks... pray I do well.
