Christmas Stall?

Hi guys,
I have my first ever stall coming up in a few weeks time.
If I'm honest, I'm pretty nervous, because I've never done one before, and I'm trying to be optimistic about it. The truth is, I am SO scared that I'm not going to sell anything, and look like a complete idiot Happy
Have you got any tips?
I am selling bags and notebooks and a few Christmas tree decorations, so not much really. I am hoping to make my stall look really pretty - any ideas how I could go about that as well?
The stall is at a primary school, so there won't be very many buyers, I don't think. Only adults that are with their kids :/

Thanks guys - and please do tell me about your experiences!

Happy

take something with you that you can make while your there, showing how you make it while they are browsing might help

also dont clutter your stall too much, use baskets and things to hold them in. Alos have business cards if you have an online shop or profile so they can keep track of you or buy online

Thanks Mischievous Raven Happy
The stall only last for about 2 or 3 hours, because it's after school. I might take some felt plushies to make while I'm there Happy
It's a good idea xx

if its for kids, raven's suggestion to put it in a basket would be interesting. try to decorate the basket and put the catchy items in front. handing out your business card would also be great. colors also matter, try to be eye catching but not too much.

Thanks judithchen Happy
I'm not old enough to have my own business, but I will certainly use catchy colours Happy
