Default Trying items on at Shows

I am attending two shows in the next two weeks and although they aren't my first shows they are my first selling hair bows.

Do you have a sample of each or a couple of your items that you let customers try on. For example: you have your display of woven headbands but only have 1 that you let customers try on.

I remember reading in a thread that a lady sprayed with some kind of antiseptic spray after letting people try it on. I'm not sure what kind of spray would be best for this (I'm in Australia).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

I always let people try anything on. Most actually don't, but you'll make more sells if they can see it/try it on. I even have a little mirror for people. It's not the most clean way to do it, but imagine all the people who try on things in regular stores.

This is true! I have tried to get over my phobia. It is mostly moms with babies who try things on the babies. Then little girls with the headbands. I had a dad once pull a kufi on to prove to his wife they were made to fit up to adults! LOL!
