Oh I am not suprised in the least. People will pay it. I am also in California, but way way way South, and I daresay people in my community would pay that and more for unique handmade headbands and bows. The issue being, I do not see them likely to do much ordering from the internet, however if these babboys were in one of our (many many) baby boutiques priced at $25, $50, $75 they.will.buy.them.

I have seen simple simple simple lined clippies decorated with just a tiny rhinestone glued on for $15, not a set, just ONE CLIPPIE.

I will pay alot for unique high quality things, and if I didn't know how to make them, or I wasn't crafty I would absolutely pay $50 or $60 for a big beautiful headband that I loved for baby.

The flip side is too many "undercharge" and are not covering site fees, payapl fees, shipping expenses, labor, etc. I see so often on sites like Etsy/Ebay cheap cheap prices and wonder how the heck its even worth it. $1.00 or $2.00 for a bow and statements that read: "I don't overcharge because I love what I do and want your daughter to wear pretty things" I think ..what?? give me a break... its a business and I for one am not working to keep money in other people's pockets, I need money in my own pocket. If I wanted just to give other mom's a break and not make money at this I would just make it a hobby.
I know this isn't a new post, but I have to say AMEN! I'm just starting out but I would love to get my products into some of the resale and thrift stores around here. I have gone in and taken a look at the bows but for what the store is charging ($2 for a 4" boutique), how on earth would any consignor make money? I think there are way too many people that undercharge, at least around here. I'm not saying that I am going to overcharge, but I at least want to make my cost, time, and effort from a sale. I charge $4 for a 4" boutique and you can add a resin for $2 or a bottlecap for $1, is that too much to ask for something I made with my own hands?
But still on the other side of the argument, I would NEVER charge $16 for an FOE headband with a $1.00 fake flower on it! lol

Whoa! I know swarovski crystals get expensive, but I just bought 72 large ones and 144 small ones for half the price of one of those clips! That is insanity! Disturbing thing is, they are still in business so someone must be happy to pay that. Eeek!
