This will be my first year being in the artist alley. I want to know how much stuff to make. For example should I make 50 turtle plushies or 200 turtle plushies or something in between. I'd rather have too much stuff than not enough. I will appreciate any help given. :heart:

A lot of it depends on what exactly you're making; the size, price, and popularity. Small, cheap, popular things will always go the fastest. However, at any scale, the basic rule of thumb I've found is this: If you need to ask yourself if you have enough, the answer is no.

That's what i figured. I just wanted to know because i'm worried about selling out. :unsure:

just a note, if you're making 50-200 of the same item you've really become a wholesaler/dealer... the uniqueness of an item really fades when they are mass produced, handmade or not...
