I talked to the mall manager, and his thoughts were this - most of the mall shoppers are looking for items that are older than the 60's and 70's, which is mostly what I sell. I do manage to sell some stuff because a small percentage of shoppers are into my kind of things, but for the most part I'm never going to reach the rest of the shoppers unless I start trying to carry older items.
So I'm still trying to figure out what to do. I do love having the booth, but if I can't make it work, there's just no point in having it...
