11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Wholesale? What percentage is the norm? on: June 25, 2006 05:13:05 AM
Hi,

Was just wondering what the percentage off is on wholesale items?  I'm considering opening up a small shop/home show biz ... and would like to start ordering items from crafters, but I've heard anywhere from 20-60% ... so what's the norm? 

Thanks,
Dee

I love the material on the neckline, very cute.  Great job!  I also don't know how to fix the shoulder problem.  Sorry

Thanks Kay ... it's really cute fabric ...

Since I don't sew at all, I don't know how to fix it.  But I just wanted to say good job!

Thanks a bunch.  Smiley

very cute, but why are you in pain?

Could you maybe put some elastic in the neckline or even some lacing into a bow at the back?

Fibromyalgia, arthritis, deteriation of spine, just had surgery, and had a hell of a headache last night.

Gosh, that's about enough I think!  LOL ...

Hmmm??? elastic, .. I've never worked with it ... could give it a shot.

thanks,

I think you did a lovely job! and off-the-shoulder is the "in" look Smiley I love the flowers too (did you add those as well?) I'm sorry you're in pain, i hope that gets better! and meanwhile....Great job!

Hi Marylou,

Yes I added the flowers .... they look much nicer in person .... they're too light in the picture.

Yeah, I suppose I could leave 'off the shoulders' ... I just don't look too good in that style.

About the pain ... just took a Darvon, that should do it!   Grin

Thanks ever so much for looking!
Hugs,
Dee

So ... I got sick of my plain t-shirts and not having any money to buy clothes, decided to alter one of them.

Started out with a plain grey xx large t-shirt and this is the end result:

I look kinda odd in this photo for 2 reasons:  I'm in allot of pain ... and I was leaning forward ...

One question: it's falling off the shoulders cause I cut too wide ... any ideas to fix that?

Thanks,
Dee

Got one question though.  You probably can't tell from photo, but it's a bit big on shoulders, it tends to fall off my shoulders, how would I fix that?

Thanks!

Hiya,

May I add that I've just recently tried this and it works great!  BUT ...  I used wool felt (30% wool and 70% polyester, and only light colors ... such as light yellow . white .. etc.  The images ironed on GREAT!  Deep rich colors and it looks so good!  So yes, it does work on felt .. but I've not tried the Craft felt .. just the wool/polyester blend.

Hugs,
Dee
