Default Bows at Zulily

I am still new at making bows and I keep practicing and practicing, trying to get the perfect bows. Lately, I have been checking on Zulily accessories. They pick new accessories designers everyday and the bows they sell are marked very high and some are far from perfection.

Here is the link for you guys to see what I am talking about. This is just an example of what they post everyday.

I know I check out Zulily all the time. Most of the items you linked look as though they are from Halo Heaven and China

It's strange how they have REALLY good deals on some stuff, and then charge way too much for stuff like bows.

I saw these a couple of weeks ago and thought the same thing. It's kinda crazy, but there are probably people out there who don't know any better than to expect that type of quality. I did my first (very small) craft show a couple weeks ago and can't believe how many people have never seen a korker bow before.

But, think about the financial aspect. You figure that the supplier needs to make money and Zulilly needs to make money. I think a lot of times there are resellers on there that can afford to give Zulilly a cut because they are already marking things up significantly and there is no work involved. I am just not a fan of what I see on there most times. Even the crappy bows are marked up so everyone can make money.

It caught my attention that mostly when they have bows with surrounded loops or spikes, the loops and spikes look uneven or crooked. I have problems trying to get perfect bows and Zulily does not care about how they look.... I guess.

It looks like the shop shipped Zulliy the bows in a box and Z just took them out of the box and snapped a pic of the smashed bow.
I do agree most of the bows they post are total China crap.

Agreed - and Zulily were interested in my tutu-dresses, but not worth it, they want 50% off my already rock bottom price!
Maybe as a marketing avenue, but seems like too much work for my little hands!!

Half of what they're selling comes from Halo Heaven. Those are Halo Heaven wings that all cost less than $2 a pair. I sell them as well but I don't charge $8.99 for them. I want to make a profit, not rip people off.

I recognize most of those stacked bows from a GB, too. It definitely looks like they came out of a box and went up on the site. A lot of them are sold out, too! It's crazy what people will pay for.
