thats how I feel... one of my newest customers was yelling at me as she has spent about $100 on bows from walmart and other places for her granddaughter and was like "I would have rather paid you double since the quality is so much better" for me thats great, but many people are that way these days.. cheaper isnt always better and there is no telling what kind of factory it was made in, but at least we do everything possible to make our products safe for children and most of all.. With love!!

I saw butterflies clips like this at Zellers in Canada. The quality was awful though...they were fraying like crazy right on the cards. When I went back a couple of weeks later though, they were all sold out of them.

UGH! What are they doing?! Stupid stores! Hopefully people will choose quality over price! You always get what you pay for.

My mom works at a Childrens Place in Texas and she has already had several people try to return these butterflies because after one wear they are falling apart!

I agree- especially around here where I live.

I just think about all the clothing that's available cheaply in stores, that can also be made/purchased homemade. When I'm at a craft fair/farmers market I will always spend more for handmade quality rather then buy it at a store. Lots of people feel that way as well - or else sites like Etsy and Artfire would be out of business instead of BOOMING.

Everything goes mainstream at some point. I mean you can buy knit hats anywhere but I still manage to sell mine for $25 because people want quality.
I started making bows for my girls because I got some from gymbo and they were crap. You are always going to have people who want to go the cheap way and other people who understand quality over a cheap price.
Those TCP butterflies are disposable and people know it. They buy a butterfly clip that is well made, that is something that is cherished.

I was at Target today and saw a lady saying how cute the bows were and she loading her cart up! I walked by trying to let her see my dd bow she was wearing so she could see it was cuter! Its annoying and I wanted to hide all of those bows at Target.

There are companies that mass produce bows like butterflies, etc. They are all over the place at buyers markets. I got some great ideas of how to package and sell sets while I was at market!! The quality just did not seem that great.

yeah but the target ones are crap quality and she will realize that. Plus maybe she doesnt know there are other ways to find bows.
