I want to run an idea by you. I'm thinking of buying inexpensive outfits (new), like capri sets, and embellishing them with ribbons, bows, appliques, acrylic paint, beads, or Swarovski rhinestones and putting them on Ebay. I'm good at this, and many of my "creations" have won in state and national pageants. I'd do the first few in sizes my granddaughters wear, so that if they don't sell, the girls can have them. Whatcha think? Do you think moms would be interested in something like this, if the price is reasonable? Should I include matching hair bows? Thanks!
Hi. Lovely idea. I suppose these would be special occasion outfits. My daughter loves bling and sparkles, she is almost 4. The only thing I suggest is ebay is a bit hit and miss. I've been selling on eBay for what feels like an eternity and my advice is research similar items , both current and completed sales, to judge interest and price. Last thing you want is not to recoup money for your time also. Girls clothing sells exceptionally well. Good luck.
I would most deffitantly buy them for my daughter if you have them in size junior. My daughter is 11 and with her getting into junior sizes she gets upset when she can not find cut outfits.
You would have a fashion hit!
There is a current trend happening up here -- mothers and daughters are dressing the same -- maybe not the exact same pattern in the outfit, but the same outfit with different fabric patterns and colors. The girl's outfits are "girly and cutesy" while the mom's outfits are "feminine with a professional twist".
Knowing you, you'd make this is a success!
I personally don't put my kids in that stuff (my toddler can wreck a pretty outfit in minutes, my baby has a habit of throwing up a lot!) but know lots of mummies that do. Maybe put them on Etsy, pin them on Pinterest, I think you'd do well!
Idea might be good, but the liability could be great. What if a child swallows one of those sequins? If I were to do it, a business license for sure and an insurance company to protect me.
I agree with Idratherbe... be very very careful about choking hazards, especially in infant clothing... Remember there are a few under-three-year-olds out there that wear bigger clothing. My daughter, for example, is 47 inches tall and weighs 48 lbs (size 7 girls clothes) and just turned 3.
At the very least put a tag on anything that might possibly be considered a choking hazard. They have little tester gadgets that are the size of a toddler's windpipe that will identify exactly what constitutes a "choking hazard"
*Grins* While you are designing a kids clothing line go ahead and grab my idea as well... make clothes for autistic and other sensory challenged kids. The ones they have out there suck.
Great point about the choking hazard. I need to find out the "choking" size limit. Some of the rhinestones are VERY small - too small, I think, to cause choking - but I need to be sure.
Sounds like a great idea. habee, maybe you could place a disclaimer on them...such as maybe a chocking hazard for children under age three and only make sizes for children ages above 3years. I believe by then they stop putting things in their mouths, however I have seen older children come in the ER where I worked with things stuck in their noses and ears much older....mostly boys. Again, Sounds great to me....
I would say, a potential choking threat is a possible lawsuit. Look at McDonald's when the person got burned when the coffee spilled. Now they label it hot. Like the person who sued and won didn't know it was hot. There's a lot to consider when opening a business. Most people only think they know.
