The two biggest problems I know of is having a viable venue to sell the item in and not doing the same thing as other people at the same location.

You can make the most awesome product and not sell a single one due to the wrong demographics or location. Selling children’s toy boxes on a college campus wouldn’t do too well. Selling cribbage boards in a retirement area would.

You also need a niche for your area. I’ve seen several festivals where 3 people were selling Adirondack chairs, 4 turners were selling pens… none did good.

I’d suggest the child desks, child theme shelves and toy boxes to compliment your bunk beds. You could take those items to a show without the beds. Having said that, make sure the show attracts people with children or doting grand parents. An artsy festival with alcohol might not work.
