Default Selling flipflops

Those of you that sell flip flops.....how do you know what sizes to stock at a craft show. Do you just take an assortment?

I would take an assortment. Last year, I took a few flip flops to a craft show. I did not have any small kid sizes though (because by the time I started to make them all the small kid sizes were gone!). People kept asking me for the small kid sizes!! So this year I went and bought a ton of small and medium kid sizes.

Good luck with your flip flops!!

Go to Dollar General asap.. They have some adorable pink checked for easter. $1.00 pair. I got some pastel crocks with rhinestones there too and added bows. They have gotten tons of compliments at work. The flip flops are selling out quick. I went to Target and got the little girls with the elastic backs and they are already picked over, nice flops though for $2.00 for $5.00. I took a box to work the other day just to show a girl that I am making a tutu for and got an order of about 10 pairs. Kind of exciting for a beginner. Now I can take that $$ and get in another GB..he he.

Girl, if I could stay away from the group buys, I might actually have a chance to make a profit! lol!

I guess I'll head out and see what I can find in different flip flop sizes and colors. Thanks!

If you have a Hobby Lobby near you, drop everything and go NOW. They had thier flip flops for .75 each. No lie. I bought 18 pairs. I just started making flip flops, I hope they sell well.
