She doesn't really sew like as in a machine. She could probably do a straight stitch though. When I said resin for glass tiles, lol I forgot that I've been using sun and moons glaze which is similiar to 3D. She is a little challenged in this area. I'm gonna give her some of the other ideas you ladies mentioned. By the way thanks for the great info on glass tiles. I was doing it a much more difficult way I do believe.

Does anyone have a good source for bails? I don't really want expensive ones. LOL I'm hijacking my own thread.

You ladies rock,

Cristi

I agree clippies are great sellers. I sold a lot of toggle headbands this weekend and woven headbands and lined headbands with bows attached. Try showing bows on crochet headbands also. I also make bow holders using wooden figures (cats, hearts, butterflies, etc).

I would tell her to invest in buying kufi hats wholesale for her bows and to make silk flower clips as well. Plus some hair bow holders. The funny thing is at my last show my hair bows did not sell well ( I had mostly solid ones ) yet the booth 4 down from me sold basic printed boutique bows for $2 each and she sold a lot of them. By best sellers are kufi hats, crochet headbands, hair flowers, and bottle cap magnets.

Bows don't sell well for me either - but bottlecaps fly off my table!!! What about Bow holders? or another woman gave me an idea of a bookmark using ribbon strips and gluing a button to the top and to the bottom. Key Fobs??

Bow holders do really well for me too.

And what if she made a small group of bows and sold them as a "lot"? like a package that included some basics, maybe a couple holiday ones...it almost takes the guess work out of buying bows and I know my show customers like that!

I crochet and knit as well and have some pics on my profile. You can add any type of clippy to any of these or I can sew on flowers, like on the blue knitted headband. I take requests too. The pics are only some of my work. They are priced very low for now. They may change next year because it just takes a lot of time to crochet or knit. Bows are much faster.
