  1. Thanks for sharing. I'm still a newbie and have often wondered how much stock is necessary even for a small local show.

  2. This is to replenish stock so I have at least 20 of each finished item
    like 20 large fish 20 small fish etc.. min 40 bracelets - it depends on the production run as with bracelets I'll do about 50 at a time of the large and about same for the small - I do try to keep an assortment
