Hello,

Iím new to this forum so please donít kill me if I post in the wrong spot.  

I make and sell European Bead Bracelets ( Pandora style )

Iím doing my first street fair in two weeks with anticipated 20,000 people in attendance.  I have about 400 bracelets made and ready to sell.  My question to you all is how many units can I expect to sell?  I am not sure if I have too much or too little.

Also I was going to sell them 1 for $15 or 2 for $20. Do you think that is a good price point??

Thanks for ANY advise!

I guess it all depends on what your definition of 'street fair' is. Is it an anything goes type of event having art, crafts, fleas, retailers, foodies, etc? And where did the promoter get the '20,000' attendance figure?

Around here a street fair will have kids, kids, and more kids who haven't seen each other since yesterday and congregate wherever they want. And generally that means in front of my booth! The people do not come to these things to buy crafts. They come to buy food and socialize.

But you may do very well since your price points are excellent.  Set up your booth so you can keep an eye on every part of it. Kids have "sticky fingers". And if you brought 400 pieces, consider your show a wild success if you come home with 300 pieces. Because you will have made about $1,000.
