Default First Craft Show

Ok ladies I need some imput please.

I will be doing my first ever craft show in Sept. Its our Oktoberfest and it gets a crowd. And of course this is the first year it is 2 days
Ok question what stock should I make? I love doing clippies, snap clippies, boutique basic, korker, pony o's and headbands. I havent done too many layerd but will include some obviously. I also hope to have a stock of tutu bowholders and other funky bowholders Im working on. and possibly some tutu's. Does this sound like plenty? What should I make the most of? Any advice is greatly needed.

That does sound like a good stock to me. For me, I don't sell may bows I mostly sell my clippies. Good luck with your show, I hope you sell alot!

My first show is mid-July and all I am making is pinwheel bows in 3 different sizes, some basic clippies, critter clippies, and bow clippies. Also so bottle cap clips and a few bows if I have time, and a few flip flops again if I have time (and money in the budget for supplies.)

If it's in September, don't forget about holiday clippies. Last year I did a show in September, and I sold a TON of turkeys & snowmen. Also, headbands are always a big seller, especially once you show them how bows can clip onto the headbands.

Definitely make holiday designs that are unique. My layered bows are the first to go, b/c shoppers just can't buy them at local stores. Also, if the area you are in is big into team spirit, make bows accordingly!
