I've never had a good handle on what folks want either. "it'll look good over 
the couch" is something that does not resonate with me. So when I had the 
opportunity to participate in a print sale, I picked photos that I liked and 
put them up for sale. My tastes are often considered a bit odd, but I managed 
quite a few print sales anyway... 

It's very hard to know what's going to sell at print sales. I look at photos on 
sale at various local shows and see nothing I would buy, but I see dozens of 
people carrying those prints home. It's perplexing.
