Default You have to see this flower!

I saw this on the front page of Etsy this morning...a CQA-75 (that's it, right?) attached to a hair clip is being sold for $30, and marketed as a bridal clip. Wow. Sorry, just had to share. I charged someone $8/piece for 16 CQA-75 flower clips once...and I actually took them all apart and added a new rhinestone center! Ladies, I've said it before...put the term "bridal" in your description and you can quadruple your prices. LOL!

Yes, she's a marketing genius I guess. I think I need to raise some of my prices.

I do think that floral, lace and white with the right model and pics can command more money... They look so simple too. I tried to make my first little girls floral with wedding veil last night and you sure do have to have a nack.
