High School Football Jewelry and More
To capitalize on high school sports jewelry requires some creativity because football charm bracelet with so many high schools around the country, manufacturers can’t produce a line for each one. But you can capture the local market by putting together your own line.
The easiest way to present a football theme is with generic football jewelry like the sports bracelet shown. Find football themed jewelry under the categories of sports bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and pendants on the site.
Just as easy is licensed sports jewelry for universities. It is also under the sports jewelry category on the site and includes major schools like LSU and Alabama as well as licensed jewelry for popular universities like The Ragin Cajuns and Southern.
But to have jewelry and accessories that customers will immediately recognize as your local high school, two ingredients are important–school colors and mascots. Two items help with school colors — school color bracelets and school colors in beads for chokers and necklaces.
For chokers and necklaces using suede cord or other materials that are loose beads thicker than monofilament line, you need beads with a 4 mm opening. Under loose beads, the site has color combinations that will go with nearly any school. Now all the fiber optic beads are 99 cents for a pack of 12.
Also, find chokers under fashion jewelry that help build your custom jewelry for the local schools. Use the search on the site to see if we have pendants for your mascot. Price all the items separately so customers can build their own sale and input their own creativity with the components. This makes you the only source for items that appeal to an avid market-a nice combination that builds sales.

Homecoming and Church Hats
One thing retailers love is an item that resists the ups and downs created by cycles in the economy. As a wholesaler, our business reflects what our customers are buying and selling. The Teflon product for us seems to be ladies dress hats. Good economies and bad they keep on going just like the Energizer bunny.
New fall dress hats are arriving and on e goal for us is to receive styles early that will appeal as homecoming hats. This is a huge market that is overlooked. Nearly every college and high school in the nation has homecoming. The hat shown is typical of popular homecoming hats. The compact shape is not overwhelming. Yet the hats have an elegance that pleases members of the court.
A second market for fall dress hats is even bigger than the first-church hats. The women shopping of church hats have a sense of dedication that overshadows movements in the economy. Felt dress hats for this market can be as diverse as the many personalities searching for the hats. The small brim above sells as well as wide brims. Felts as well as satin braids. Colors can be subdued or lively. The best news for you is there is good demand and little competition. Keep this market in mind. It works for us every year.
Filed under Scepters
Retailers seldom think of shopping for wholesale scepters when lining up their fall merchandise. Actually, scepters fly well under the radar when we think about products to sell. Yet fall is a time when they have greater than normal demand.
WHOLESALE SCEPTERS FOR PAGEANTS
Many think of pageants as a spring activity, but actually it is year round. Many are in fall including the prestigious Miss America pageant. Wholesale scepters are a need for pageant directors and retailers selling to the pageant industry. The scale of pageants offers girls an opportunity to develop talents starting with small local pageants to major ones. The scale also determines the budget for crowns, tiaras, and scepters. Some very nice wholesale scepters are available at very affordable prices like the fleur-de-lis scepter shown. These can add prestige at an affordable cost to even small pageants.
SCEPTERS FOR MARDI GRAS ROYALTY
In areas celebrating Mardi Gras, scepters have a great demand. Krewes usually have a king, queen, and a royal court. Mardi Gras New Orleans list 64 Krewes in New Orleans alone. In addition, many towns in Louisiana, along the Gulf Coast, and into East Texas have Mardi Gras Krewes. This is a huge market. Local retailers have an advantage for scepters as well as crowns. Being king or queen as well as being in the court is often a once in a lifetime opportunity. Royalty wants it to be right. They want to see the Mardi Gras scepters and crowns to be sure they are perfect for the occasion. The scepters shown with a crown on top is popular for Mardi Gras royalty. It has a choice of silver or gold plating. The crown on top has a four inch diameter and sparkles with crystals.
WHOLESALE SCEPTERS FOR HOMECOMING
While not universal, many homecomings have scepters for their king and queen. Homecomings happen nationwide in the fall. Nearly every university, college, and high school has homecoming. How many potential buyers is that? According to Wikipedia, the US had 26,407 public high schools and 10, 693 private high schools in 2001. That’s a lot of prospects for homecoming scepters even without counting universities and colleges. Earlier this year, a retail shop contacted me to help them with pictures of scepters and crowns. They wanted to market to their local schools in the area. They had no local retailers offering scepters and crowns. The ones used by schools in the area left much to be desired. It was a very creative idea for generating business—something few retailers would think of. Homecoming is a huge market that often gets overlooked.
WHOLESALE SCEPTERS FOR PARTIES AND FUN
So far we have talked about occasions with need, but what about scepters for parties and fun? Many wholesale scepters are far more reasonable than most retailers realize. The fleur-de-lis scepter shown above can retail for around $25—an affordable price girls doing a bachelorette party, or the star of a sweet sixteen, quinceanera, or birthday party. Kids’ scepters are even cheaper. If you want to be different, if you want a market with practically no competition, and if you want items that have an absolute need—shop wholesale scepters and make a small investment to stock a few so people will know that you are the “go-to” place in your area.

Here comes the last month of summer and that’s good news for many retailers that do their best business starting with fall. Actually, some fall items start selling now. Fall dress hats just arrived and shops carrying millinery are putting in orders because their customers want fall hats early.
In addition, fall dress hats are important to homecoming. If you sell to members of homecoming courts, stock some homecoming hats early so customers will see that you have them.
We can’t forget football season that gives a nice boost to many businesses. Teams from high school on up have avid fans that want to show support. This is good for many shops that can capitalize on local markets. Football fans following the local high school team are passionate.
Then there is the new items, sometimes in areas least expected. When we think of bridal, we think reserved, elegant, and traditional. Well, bridal hair accessories have broken out of the quiet mode with so many alternatives to bridal veils that a new vocabulary is necessary to describe them-bridal side combs, forehead jewelry, neck and shoulder jewelry, hair vines, twist ins, side accented headbands to name a few. Inspiration for bridal hair accessories is coming from cultures around the world as well as vintage inspiration from the Roaring Twenties and other eras. It is catching on so quick that we need to be involved. With so much overpriced hair accessories out there, all you need to do is be reasonably priced to get the business.
In the following posts we’ll look at items selling now so we can get excited and get our customers excited.

Filed under Mardi Gras Jewelry
Mardi Gras jewelry is a seasonal thing, right? Not if you are royalty in a Krewe and need favors. As Mardi Gras draws near, things get hectic and the items that make nice favors often sell out. The chance to be king, queen, or other members of the court is often once in a lifetime. Therefore, they don’t want to hand out just any favor; they want something special. And they have to shop early
MARDI GRAS JEWELRY USED FOR FAVORS
A popular favor every year is Mardi Gras jewelry. The mask pin shown has sparkly pave’ crystals covering the cateye mask. Flowing metal sculptured ribbon surrounds the mask using purple and green jewel tone epoxy to add the Mardi Gras colors. Masks are a favorite Mardi Gras jewelry theme used for favors, but other popular themes are crowns, jesters, and comedy tragedy. The crown pin shown really stands out with dimensionally raised shape, crystal highlights, and eye-catching jewel tone epoxy. Some like Mardi Gras jewelry that is unique. This jewelry is usually limited to one or two deigns in the theme. Some of the pins on our site that fit into this category are carousel horses, jack-in-the-box, and second liners like the one shown. What are second liners? These are people celebrating with a spontaneous dance usually carrying an umbrella. The name comes from people falling in behind a Mardi Gras parade and dancing as they follow.
MARDI GRAS RHINESTONE PINS FOR FAVORS
Mardi Gras rhinestone pins that spell out the title of members of the court are in demand every year. Almost exclusively, court members of the Krewes use this jewelry. The pins spell out titles in rhinestone letters like king, queen, maid, duke, duchess, captain, prince, and princess. These rhinestone title pins are extremely popular and as Fat Tuesday draws near, inventory is very scarce. For that reason, royalty generally shops for these pins early. If you have Krewe members shopping with you, it is a good idea to have these Mardi Gras rhinestone pins in your inventory now to get this business.
MARDI GRAS FACE MAGNETS FOR FAVORS
Other members of Krewes attending Balls also need favors. Mardi Gras face magnets are popular and very affordable. Actually they fill two needs for gift shops—souvenirs and favors. Krewe members use these favors to give others seated at their table and for call-out favors when asking a lady to dance. There are more than 20 designs to pick from, but the jester head magnet in Mardi Gras colors is most popular. In the heat of the summer, most gift shops are not thinking about Mardi Gras. This can be to your advantage when royalty is shopping for favors and you are the only option.
