What do you look for in an Artist Alley?

I'm brainstorming a bit for my Artist Alley table I plan on having at Youmacon this year, and I want to expand my wares to things the Lolita crowd would be into, as I'm getting more and more into it myself.

To the con-goers, what would you like to see at an Artist Alley table? I want to stray away from main outfit points (dresses/skirts/blouses/etc) and go more for accessories and such.

Previously at Artist Alley (I've only done it twice, once at Acen last year, once at Youmacon last year), I've done drawing commissions (which I plan to continue--examples of my artwork) as well as various drawings/paintings I've done (mostly fanart), earrings, backpacks of my own character (which actually went over much better than expected XD), wood-burnings (boxes and plaques).
I've been thinking of doing like small handbags (some with a Lolita/video game theme (odd combo, I know, but I have some good mental pictures), others with like a sweet Lolita theme (painted/beadwork cupcakes and animals and such), maybe some Lolita-esque eye patches (someone suggested this once before and I thought it sounded like a really cool idea), maybe some sock toppers/wrist cuffs, bun wraps, and I'd like to break into etched glass too (though I'm not sure what to burn that would be Lolita-esque, short of like some sweet Loli-themed glasses or something)..
I want to do things you don't normally see (so no mini top hats or anything like that, I usually see at least three or four booths with those), or things that in your opinions you don't normally see done well. My skillset isn't limited to just drawing or just sewing or anything like that, I've a broad range and welcome challenges (and obviously anything I make, I'll have a large variety of styles/colors).

What would you like to see?
