I don't do clippies at all.... I have roughly 400 bows done. About 320 are basic boutique bows ranging in size from 3 1/2" to 7". The rest are stacked bows. I still have to do pony-o's and Christmas stacked bows, and Basic Christmas bows.... And about 100 other things on my to do list!!!! This show I am doing is supposed to see about 200,000 people, and I am just realizing that that is ALOT of people, so I am starting to freak out a little....... Do y'all think I have enough so I can relax and not freak out this week?

I choose 100 due to I bring lots of clippies, and it seems I never make enough bows to equal 100+.

if the show you are doing brings in 200,000+ people you should make as many items as you can between now and your show time. If you don't have it you can't sell it right Personally, for a crowd like that I'd have a couple thousand bows but that's just me. Good luck with the show!!

I agree with you! It didn't hit me until a couple weeks after I talked to her, and reading show volumes on here how big that is. I just can't see a festival in small town, Louisiana bringing in that many people though..... I guess I will see. If I sell out (haha) I will have more than doubled what I have ever made in a show. The entry fee was only $50, so I figure I can't lose. Oh Goodness, you have me really nervous now! I just don't want to look stupid by not having enough inventory. I have never taken this much to a show and she said that will only be one other bow booth there.......

I put less then 100 because I don't do bows at all, only clippies and I usually bring about 300 of those. I think I'm going to start doing basic boutique bows though because I had alot of people asking me for them at my last show.
