How much stock should you take to the fair?

Christmas fair countdown tip
How much stock should you take?

This is a tricky question to answer and whatever you decide, it will probably end up being too much! But of course, that's much better than running out of stock.

Start by ensuring you have a good range of items across all price ranges and include products that reflect your Etsy business. A stall is also an excellent opportunity to sell items you've made that you might have been nervous about posting.

One thing to bear in mind – don't be tempted to cram everything you take onto the stall. You can get away with just having one of something, but do ensure that if a customer shows interest in it that you engage with them and explain that you have other colours/sizes/ with you.

If you are paranoid about running out of stock, you could have a sign saying that you are taking orders. That way you can still make sales!
