Wholesale Sewing

Hair Clips For Wholesale Order

Not long after I wrote about wholesale orders last week, I got an e-mail from one of my best wholesale clients, with a request for a huge order! Luckily I had most of the supplies for the order in stock, so I could get started right away.

The next few days were filled with glueing brooches & rings, making necklaces,...

And sewing lots and lots of hair clips. The order included 40 pairs of hair clips, so I had 80 clips to sew! When I finished my hands were in pain and I even had some blisters, but it felt so good to get everything done!

I'm still waiting for some more supplies, but I have shipped this half of the order already. For those of you who were afraid to start selling wholesale because of the supplies you need to have: Don't worry! Most of my wholesale customers so far were in no rush at all. I tell them which items I need extra supplies for, and if they would mind waiting for that. So far everyone was okay with it.

Some customers, like the one for this order, suggest shipping in 2 parts, first the items I can make right away, and then the other items when I have the supplies. Others were willing to wait for the entire order. So don't let having to have a lot of supplies in stock be the reason you don't sell wholesale!

  5. You go girl! Being productive and selling a lot!
    I never realized you did so much sewing, i thought most of your work involved glueing.
    Watch those blisters, your hands are important! Keep them going!

  6. Well done, thanks for the tip!

    Could you not glue the clips? I have glued similar things before, I find if you use E6000 and put some glue on the clip where the little holes are, and then push onto the applique, the glue comes therough the hole in neat circle blobs, and once dries, forms a plug that won't pull back through?

    Might save your hands from RSI (which is HORRIBLE)! x
