How to Sell Peacock Feathers. With their luxurious and bright feathers, it's no wonder that peacocks are associated with vanity and a bit of animal arrogance. The feathers of a peacock show a beautiful spectrum of colors rarely found elsewhere. You can sell these soft and attractive feathers for a good deal of money, so follow a few steps to capitalize on peacock plumage.
Gather and sort the feathers before beginning to sell them. It takes quite a few peacock feathers to make a decent pelt or to supplement an exotic flower bouquet. Go to your source of feathers and sort them according to color, size and quality.
Sell feathers wholesale to retailers. Many businesses such as party supply and decor concerns use lots of peacock feathers on a regular basis. Contact companies like Zucker Feather Products about selling them peacock feathers in large quantities.
Open an online store. While retail sales of peacock feathers won't justify a real storefront, a store in an e-market such as eBay will supplement your income while spreading word of your brand. Open a store with eBay and provide lots of photos of high quality feathers and news of your good prices.
Craft the feathers into jewelry. Feather earrings, for instance, have a stable and sizable market. Work with a jeweler or use your imagination to turn mere feathers into beautiful accessories. Selling the feathers as accessories will increase your profit margin on your product.
Connect with flower sellers. A peacock feather is a beautiful and often unexpected addition to a bouquet. Contact local florists about supplying them with peacock feathers and promote methods of integrating feathers into bouquets.
