What should I sell at this year's Stumptown Comics Festival

Some local cartoonists and I have bought in on a table at the Stumptown Comics Festival. I've already resolved to sell a zine-sized comic book and production well under way, but I'm considering branching out into some other items as well. Maybe posters, maybe t-shirts, I'm not sure. I'm not expecting to make this month's rent or anything, but it would be nice to come out of Stumptown w/ a profit.
So, I put it to the hivemind: Aside from comics, what kind of stuff do you look to purchase at comics conventions? What do you find yourself coming home with? What are you comfortable spending on various items? And if you've ever worked a table at a convention, which items proved most popular? What price point seemed ideal?
I've got just about a month to get ready. What do you think I should produce in that time?
