To me it depends entirely how one is going to market them, Devonna. If using an online shop like Etsy, one would need at least six to a dozen articles to begin with so that the shop has some presence and seems "full". I find that people want to have some choice - colour, design, size, etc. For a market, depending on the market, one usually needs more so that any gaps can be filled straight away.

I agree, although it depends on where you are selling. If you are advertising one thing on a blog you could just have the one thing and add a Buy It button to that post, but if you have an Etsy store you'll want an assortment. If you're creating a stand-alone website, complete with shopping cart you may want more. It will also depend on what it is that you're selling. If the item has a lot of variations - size, color, etc - you might have less initial items. Can you give us more information about what you're selling and where you're planning to sell it?
