I think they’re really cute, but I agree that the market for high priced hair clips (and I consider over $10 high priced) is pretty small.

You could try starting an etsy shop, but there are tons of shops with hair clips, so it may be hard to get started.

PS – the tshirt headband is amazing!

Why not just start up a shop and see what you can sell? I’d try for somewhere in the $30-$40 range, maybe. Remember that you have to factor in the cost of your labor, and the fee from whatever site you post on. You’ll never know until you try!

I love them! The wedding flower is exactly the kind of hair piece I want for my wedding! I agree with MandaMack that an etsy shop may be a good starting place. I have noticed on etsy that most people make sample ones and then make them as orders come in. This would ensure you are not putting in a great amount of time and energy on something with no return.

The pricing is hard. Some people do not realize how steep material prices can be. I would pay around $20-25. This price range is on the high end of what I would spend, but I really do like buying handmade items!

I agree that setting up on etsy or trying to get to some local craft shows (holdiays are a big time for them at most high schools and churches) and start there.

these are pretty! personally, i would sell them for $15-30, depending on the cost of materials used. just keep in mind that places like etsy have A LOT of people selling similar hair clips and headbands, so price on the lower end if you want to sell a lot.

I think they’re beautiful.  If I see it on the streets I would be willing to pay $20-$30 for one.  I’m more frugal shopping online so if I see it on Esty I’m not sure if I would buy it unless I really need it for my wedding or whatnot.  But if you advertise it as a wedding accessory you can probably price it $20-$50.
