Don't rotate them far away! Customers often come back and ask 'do you 
still have the xxxx that I saw here yesterday?'.

The very best thing to do is to try to enjoy yourself. If you are having 
a good time, people will be drawn in. So people-watch, smile, chat, take 
pictures of your booth, smile, re-arrange to make new displays, smile 
some more. Sometimes that takes an effort of will, but once you get used 
to it you start actually having fun and then it's easy. And I find all 
events are humbling. You always think of something you could have done 
better, you always see vendors selling more than you (apparently), there 
are always a few customers who tell you what you 'should' have done... 
Just roll with it, take what you can from it and don't get over-humbled. 
It's all learning!
