How to Run a Booth at a Fair

Have you ever manned a booth at a carnival, fair, or expo? I'm running a booth and selling items at a weekend fair that will benefit a volunteer organization. What do I need to know?

We will have a cashbox and a jar for donations. It's under a pop-up tent. We will be selling $1, $3, and $5 items. I know to bring a couple chairs for volunteers who are working the booth and a cooler with drinks. I have my items to sell ready to go. I have my volunteer workers lined up. It's outdoors and there is going to be a ton of traffic. I have never done this before and want to make sure I am not missing anything. I am most worried about somebody swiping my cashbox or donation jar. Any tips or advice on running a booth appreciated.
