Talking Craft show

Hi! Everyone. I am getting ready for a Christmas craft show in November, and I would like to know if any of you have an idee of how much of the same card design should I have.

Thank you!

I only make one of each design but take about 200 different cards for various occasions with me. That way people looking through the stack don't see the same cards. This makes them feel like they are getting something unique. Now I probably will make those cards again, but I just don't take them with me.

Thank you!
I make multiples (usually 10) of specialized Christmas cards, such as cards for teachers, babysitters, postal carriers, Grandma, Grandpa etc. These sell fast, as do cards for Baby's first Christmas, First Christmas together, First Christmas in your new house, of which I make about 5-6 each. I also make gift tags which go quickly, and wine bottle gift tags which are a huge favorite. This year I will be making decorated gift boxes for small jewelry items. I don't sell jewelry, but other craft vendors do, but most don't provide boxes, so I fill the need. I make packets of Christmas thank yous as well and teachers like to buy those. And little girls just eat up packets of Christmas note cards with sparkle. I should add that I print the card text digitally, punch it out or use a spellbinder die and then decorate with stamps and/or embellishments. The prinintg allows me to make a lot of customized cards. Good luck and have fun!
