Default selling your bows

Do you sell your bows and ribbon sculptures in pairs. I have my first selling experience in october at a school fete but not sure wether to sell in pairs or not. Little bows i will but bigger bows and sculptures not sure.

Thanks in advance

I have sold in pairs and in singles. I have found that 3inch bows made with 7/8 inch ribbon sell best in pairs. Everything else sells better in singles for me.

People seem to want the tiny bows for babies and often just get one because they can not do pigtails. Bigger bows people think they just need one because they are too big for pigtails. I still do some of the 7/8" in singles because people will want those to put on headbands for babies too.

I would do both....personally when I used to do shows i'd notice alot of people asking if they could get a single clip instead of a pair and I sold about the same amount both ways. Same way with etsy...seems like people want singles just as much as pairs. So I usually offer both.

Same with me...I do pairs or singles...I do happen to sell more singles, but there are still quite a few that want pairs we well. My bigger bows over 4'' and up I do more singles and sculptures (when I do them) I sell individually.

I personally have better experience with singles. At my last craft show I made several sets of pigtail style bows and sold not a single one! HTH

I used to sell in pairs only and have since changed to singles. I make sure I have a match in case someone wants a pair, but I do way better with singles.

Had a huge show this past weekend and singles were by far my better sellers.

I always sell in singles, but at shows I do a two-for deal, and many times people will buy a pair
