These are sooo easy to make. I make them 10-20 at a time and end up giving them away.

You can also use paper egg crates to make them. They work great

Tylenol for all the headaches it sounds like your going to get with all the ordering. The best advice I could give in this would be visit another camp store somewhere else and ask them if you can look around and tell them what your doing. The owner will more than likely be happy to help you. If you look at most KOA's they have a good handle on what they need. If I was putting one in the big draw would be an Ice cream window that alone will keep you busy .

DW says "jewelry including a nice assortment of chocolate diamonds, cappuccino, gormet chocolate, pink Zinfandel and muscato, day spay with mani-pedicures and deep tissue masseuse. That'll keep her occupied for the first day. Lol.
Really tho, looks like you got a good list started here. Best of luck.

Alabama State Park sold beer at their camp store on the mountain. I fell in love.

Head office dictates what items have to be in stock at KOA's. If the owner does not have all the items in stock they loss points during their annual inspection.
