Those are good ideas too...I would want to know what kind of foot traffic they get though to see if it would be worth the investment of booth space. Whenever I am in those stores it doesn't seem like there are a lot of people in them (but i have no idea what a lot is for those stores.)
What about craft shows? it is that time of year for them. Could you have enough product available for one? Or you could make up samples and let people customize their colors or something like that. Just depends on how quickly you could turn out product before christmas I suppose.
Another option is baby boutiques in your area. Just taking in a few items and letting them sell on consignment.
you do have to be careful though. A lot of patterns say that you can't use them to make a profit, so while you can give them as gifts you aren't really supposed to sell the finished product. It would seem unlikely that you would get "caught" but it is something to consider.
