Ah! One's first show! So exciting!
There has been volumes written on this forum about what sells, what to make, who buys what, etc etc. It's a lot of reading material, and if you're in this for a while, I'd go read it. But for the sake of a summary, I'm going to say that you should make bring some things that you like to make, and are proud of, and build yourself a nice display, get a float and a Square, and see what works. Find a show that you think might fit your work. You're in the market research stage. This is a stage where you need to throw something at the wall and see if it sticks. Get some information from "doing" and then make some decisions after you have that information.
Mugs, bowls of various sizes, and some kind of small item like a soap dish or a ring dish or a shot cup are good places to start. You can introduce other, more specific items a few at a time once you get going.
I do apologize. I think the only thing more maddening than "It depends" is probably "go try it and see."
