Stocking decisions

Post by MissDee » Wed Apr 18, 2012 2:19 pm

Hello, as most of you are aware this is my first event as a trader and I'm having issues knowing how many of each size clothing to bring. I'm launching my clothing at the event so I haven't done any other events with clothing. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what sizes sell best?

I was about to move this to the fashion section; I thought you meant 'fishnet or plain' or 'hold-ups or suspenders' :oops:

Only joking!

I know that the smaller traders tend to run out of the 'middle' sizes quite quickly, but how many of each they bring I have no idea.

This article may give you some idea

Thanks I'll have a few more of the middle sizes :)
And thanks Tez :)
My bulb has now blown on the sewing machine.... Maybe have a couple less of the other end sizes if I can't get a replacement quickly....
