I'm toying with the idea of doing a few craft shows, and I know I need to get together an inventory of my product line, but I have so many ideas I think my booth would look disjointed with all the different things.  Not to mention it'd be easier to mass produce if my crafts were similar...  How can I keep my product line unified without stifling my creativity or creating massive boredom??  Would it be enough to have all my products fabric related? (my main craft is quilted wall hangings, but I could branch out into sewn ornaments, etc)

I'm in the same situation!  I'm doing my first shows in November and want my booth to have a boutique feel.  After much thought I really think it's better that way.  I went to a few shows recently where EVERYONE has only one item.  Or a variation of their item...if they sell paintings they also have postcards,etc.  Which made me walk right on by--I think if there are more than one type of item it will catch more people's attention.  Just like a store.  Who would want to visit a store selling only one item?  That's booooring.  In my opinon.  I wish us both luck & have fun crafting!  Besides...I get bored easily and crafting only one type of item would bore me to tears.  Gotta mix it up!

If you want to keep them all fabric related, that is a good idea. I've found it's good to have items in several price ranges-from cheap to expensive-you never know how much people want to spend, so you'll have more luck if you have a range of prices. Good luck!

It nice to have a variety of items, you just should think how to organize them. I have the same problem - if I just lay my hats on the table - the booth looks like a flea market. So to display them I grouped them in several groups (see my web-site). I bought 3 boards and 2 tables, so I can place each group separetly from each other. I made a sign for each group. Signs and perfect order are very helpfull!  I have some pony-tail hats. Without a sign people did  not notice them, and a signs made a big difference!

There is a helpfull way to group your items - think about them like you are making a web site. Each group on a different page.
