Default Very First Craft Show... Any tips?

I have my very first craft show coming up. I expect it to be small and not expecting much but I want to put my best foot forward and have a well stocked booth.

Any tips on stock quantity?

So far I have about 50 butterfly clippies (working on more clippies of a different style to have approx 100)
50 basic boutique bows (working towards 100)
50 silk flower clippies
50 ribbon flower clippies
I am working on having a minimum of 50 stacked boutique bows

I will have 2 tutu dresses on display
Hoping a minimum of 10 tutus

I am hoping to have woven headbands on hand but not sure I will get them done in time since this show is so short notice (just signed today and the show is the 14th) but if I can get them done I want a minimum of 25

What else would you recommend as far as stock and quantity?

I am looking to have beautiful, but low cost, products on hand for easy sales. The bulk of my stock will be priced at $5 along side higher priced items such as the stacked boutique bows, tutus, and tutu dresses.

Any other tips? This will be an outdoor show.

Things like crochet headbands are always big sellers for me. Some people have had good luck with selling those foe hair ties, but they were a total flop when I tried them at my last 2 shows.

I definately agree with the crochet headbands, and or kufis/hats. I sell those and ppl love the fact that u can interchange flowers, clips etc on them
