Default Clippies - do you sell them in 2, 3, 4...

I'm going to start selling clippies soon and was wondering how you all sell them. Single, in pairs, 3, 4.....

What's the norm?

TIA

I only sell them at craft shows, online just doesn't make sense to me with fees and such. But I fill a big bow board with them, and sell them 1 for 1.50 or 2 for 2.00 for regular clippies and ones with embellishments are 2.50 each. They fly that way because some people use them as 2 for barrettes and some just like 1 for sweeping bangs out of the way.

Agree'd, I have a hard time pricing these, cost isn't so high but I don't want it to be dirt cheap with listing/paypal fees.

I mostly list in pairs, but I actually don't like clippies on pigtails and would never use them that way. I also have some listed in 4's and one set of 10

I only sell them in sets of 6 on etsy, otherwise with fees it isnt worth it.

At craft shows I just have a little bin I fill with them and put them at $1.50 each or 6 for $7 so they get a really good deal there

I find that people love to dig through the bins. I have laid them out on a table or put them on bow boards I made for displays, and they do not sell. If I put a bin out I will have a line of ladies just waiting to dig through and find their "treasure"

I sell mine with the expensive Appliques (like asecinc) for 3.50 or 2/6. With those running at around 1.00 give or take each, I charge more for those and sell them in singles.

For sets of glitter ribbon,, I do 2.50 and others 2.00 for a set.

i sell them in varying amounts as a matter of fact one of my best sellers is a set of 6 clippies that i easily get $8 for or $10 at a craft show i charge more because it has "bling" lol and i have never had any complaints. most of my sculptures get sold as singles though but i offer discounts if they buy a set amount

i sell them as singles and depending on what they have on them is the price, for example solid color ribbon with an embellishment is $1. If the ribbon is print with embellishment then its $1.25, glitter ribbon with felt embellishments I have for $1.50 and glitter ribbon with bottlecap at $3.50

I do the bin thing also, but I had several of my customers ask me to make "sets" because they can't pick what they want. So I do the bin and I have some in sets, that way, they can choose. I do sets of 3, not matching, just color coordinated.
