Default To clip or to attach?

Hi ladies! Although my business has been around for a year and a half, I am just about to start offering flowers and headbands! I am all set to go, but am struggling with one question....should I attach the flowers directly to the headbands, or just to clips so they can be interchangeable? Any suggestions about what their customers like best? I sell mostly online, but also at a few large craft shows coming up in the fall. Thanks so much for any advice!

Want to make more $$? Glue them to the headband. That way they have to buy multiple. Want to go with customer preference? Make them interchangable, that way they can attach whatever they want to the headband....jmo

interchangeable....sell as a set with two or three clips per headband for a larger cost (but cheaper than buying 3 headbands and 3 bows)....anything that looks like a good deal will sell better....or sell the headband solo with the option to "add" bows for an additional charge

I'd say interchangeable too unless asked to do so...
I had someone ask me to attach them to the headbands with soft felt backings on the inside because her little one kept tugging stuff off of her headbands.

Thanks ladies! Do you do this with all of your flowers? Sorry, I should have mentioned that I have daisies, satin mesh flowers, shabby chiffon, and hand-rolled satin flowers, and am going to just offer FOE or skinny elastic (no crochet headbands). I do offer crochet hats, but I make them all by hand . And if you do the FOE/skinny headbands separately, do you card them all plain, or just have a basket that folks can choose from? Ack...so many decisions!

I usually offer some of each. Because my personal preference for my girls is to have them attached. Many people would rather them be interchangeable though.

I've been wondering the same thing. I am thinking about selling a headband by itself and selling a group of clips or flowers and clips for a price and if they buy both, throw in a clippie. Or something like that. Buy two get one free. I can make my freebies from the SALE basket.
