Default question about thongs/flipflops

Im guessing this is probably the most appropriate place to ask this - when making up your thongs or flipflops if your from america :P do you stock up on all different sizes of thongs or do you do up one or two examples then buy the sizes you need when ordered. just wondering what would be the best way to start. either to find a wholesaler of thongs or just get a couple at a time etc

Im really not sure how well they will sell here in australia but have been told the popularity is increasing.

Default Re: question about thongs/flipflops

I had bought a few pair (about 12) from a destash in November. I sold all but 4 of them at my last show, and now that the time is right and I know they move, I went to our local dollar store and bought 40 pair! But I wish that I had some more variety in sizes because I could have sold a couple more pairs! So I would think get a variety and see how they move for your area. Hope this helps you!

I think it depends somewhat on how you are selling the, online vs. craft show/store. Online you could probably get away with only doing a few sizes. Craft shows to me are impulse buys are they are more likely to buy then if you have a size/style they want. HTH

Default Re: question about thongs/flipflops

i go about this 2 ways: if the toddler size are on sale i stock up, since those are harder to find, in different sizes and colors.

but i also do them for my daughter and post pictures online and when i get an order i will go and buy them since girls and women's are easier to find than toddlers...HTH

I stock up on the actual flip flops.
And then only make a few, but take orders and use the flip flops I already have!
