I bring about $150.00. 30 ones, 6 fives, 3 tens, and 3 twenty dollar bills. You can usually get more change from the food vendors if you run out. I used to only bring ones, fives, and tens until I had a show where my first customer gave me $100.00 bill and took every bit of my change!

We typically bring $100 no matter what the size is. 70 in 5's and 30 in 1's. There is an off chance that you will get a $100 one of your first transactions, but usually at a big show you are so busy that you will make more than enough to build up your change bank that you can easily make change for a big bill pretty quickly.

HTH!

I usually bring at least $150 in change. $50 in ones, $50 in fives and $50 in tens. I take double that if its a larger show. HTH.

for smaller shows I bring $100-$150, mostly ones, but some 5's, 10's and maybe a 20. However, for my larger shows I go with at least $350. Most of my shows will allow me to get change one time a day, which is a definite bonus! I would rather take more than I needed than have to turn down customers because I can't make them change

I usually start with 100 too. With mostly ones and go from there. I had a guy last year give me a 100 bill for an 8 product. I hesitated for a moment cause I was afraid it would be a fake! It wasn't btw. But makes you wonder.

Maybe buying and taking one of those conterfiet money pens....that way if you get a $100 you can check it first. IDK, just a thought.

I bring 100 usually. I try to have at least one 20. Never know when someone is gonna give you a 100. I usually do enough sales to have extra for change, but for a show that big I don't know. Might wanna bring 200.
