On the low end as well. I would suggest 9.00 but then 7.50 when you purchase the pair.
My suggestion is to stick to price points. Look at what you'll offer in your shop or for sale in person as a whole and then take everything into consideration; just as you would when you enter any retail store. It's not the same in boutique but can be really helpful when you start to branch out or expand your selection. Your bows are beautiful and your photos very clear so i would venture a guess that you'll be doing some growin

Just because of exposure i bet. Hopefully once people gain interest there wouldn't be a problem. It's overcrowded out there so they need to see it first. ..i think LOL

I took a look in your shop and honestly it's the only bow like it. If you had a selection of say 3-4 to pick from and other colors it would tempt customers to come in to shop. People who want to get multiples since they're already paying the shipping costs. So once you have more like it I bet it will be a great holiday seller.
Also, it's close to xmas. People are already thinking just plain pink and red or of purchasing items to go in the stockings but will work in the new year. So I would next focus on those colors.
If you made more in this style and focus in that area I think you've really go t a good thing going!! Esp since you have specialty centers and so fourth.

This is adorable. If you are selling for $7, I am sure once you get more items, and more exposure out there, you will start tosee sales pick up. Those first few sales are the hardest, but once they start up and the feedback comes in, it gets much easier. A variety in your shop will makhelp sales too. Good luck. I'm sure you'll do well.

Wow! You've received some great advice!

I was also thinking that even though people (myself included) love bargains, sometimes if an item seems to be priced too low, then potential sellers might think that it's of sub-par quality--especially when it's a new shop without a lot of feedback. (It doesn't always make sense, but that's the way people's minds work at times.) I don't think that $7.00 fits into that category, but why don't you try kicking it up to $8.00 and see what happens? You can always bring it back down to $7.00 if it still doesn't sell.

Good luck!

I'd pay $12.95 in person if I could hold the bow and see how cute it is. I'm on the higher end and because you have a resin in the center, so I'd add to the previously suggested prices of $9 or $10. It's adorable.

Excellent point! Even at wholesale prices, resins add a lot to the cost of materials. And, my gosh, the embellishment even has its own cute little bow!

Please disregard my last post, and kick that gorgeous bow up to $9 or $10!!!
