Default Craft Show Advice Needed

I am in need of advice as far as craft shows go.
How do you figure out how many of a particular item you are going to make especially if you have never done a craft show before. example, how many tins would you make, coasters, magnets etc. I know you want to make enough to allow you to keep making some money, but how much is enough?Thank you!

If you will do a search on here for craft fairs you should find a lot of information. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately right now the best answer we can give you is to do a search on craft shows. I have asked a couple times for a craft show forum...but nothing so far.
To try to answer your question on how many to make...try doing a dozen of each. And if you find things are selling well...keep the last item to take orders.

thanks ladies, I have looked up a few things on this site but most of the info is in regards to what people are selling, and what they are charging. So far haven't found much on quantity. Oh well maybe I'm not looking hard enough. thanks for your input.

I'm almost positive there was a thread posted a week or two ago about this very topic, so if you try adding terms like how many, quantity or number to your search criteria I'm sure you'll find the info you need!
