How much would you buy vintage hair bows for?

Asked by: Helena 385 views Fashion & Accessories , ,

Me and my friend are thinking of making vintage hair bows and selling them on Etsy, we would be using bought material and buying the big, chunky hair clips if we make them. How much minimum to maximum would you pay or what do you think we could achieve with the prices.

    well i have just looked on etsythey start at £1 and go to over £300 but the expensive ones are genuine vintageyou have to work out a few things before pricingfor instance, how much have the materials cost you to purchase?its no good charging £3 if the materials have cost you that, or relatively close to thatthe rule of thumb when pricing something is, take your cost to produceand x3that is1/3 for materials cost1/3 for you as a "wage" to produce it1/3 profit/money back to the business/etsy & paypal fees/envelopes to post etctake a look at what will be your competition on etsyfind a gap in the market as everywhere is saturated with crafters selling itemsdont limit yourself to one market, also look at gothic or bohemianperhaps get hairbands and embellish for babies (people buy lots of baby accessories)offer to do commissionsoffer bulk discounts (many mothers buy things like this for party bags)look at your local primary school colours, lots like matching bows to their new starts school uniformthink outside the box!
