How are you marketing your business? One piece of advice.....don't say that your prices are very's better to say that they are very reasonable. No one wants to buy cheap as that word means poor quality. Hope this helps.
If you are interested, I have a free weekly webinar (Wed. evenings) teaching business owners like you, 40 Ways to Grow your Business. There are tons of great tips that any business owner can use. Christmas is just around the corner and now is the time to grow your business. If you would like the link, please send me a message. All the best.

Hi Nina,
Have you thought about contacting a local sign company that can make you a decal for your vehicle? It's constant free advertising. When you are advertising your business, it's important to focus on target marketing. For example, since your business is hair accessories, could you network with some hair stylists in your area to see if they would allow you to put out some cards about your business and what you offer to their clients? I agree with Bonnie too about using the word "cheap". Instead you could say something like Boutique Quality at Affordable Prices. There is definitely an art to advertising and marketing any business. Again, maybe some salons in your area would be willing to let you advertise your "boutique style hair accessories" or let you put out some literature about them. Vista Print is a great resource for affordable postcards, etc. I would contact some boutiques and speciality shops as well in your area and see if they wold be interested in purchasing your items for their shop.
Good luck and keep us updated on how your business is going!
