I think you need something to attract children towards your stall, kids lead parents follow
When we had charity stalls we always dressed up in silly or seasonal costumes that got people's attention. One Christmas we had a couple of beautifully knitted dolls, Father Christmas & Mrs C who kept having a Punch & Judy type fight about who hadn't fed Rudolph, kids loved it and parents nearly always bought something from the stall or gave a donation.
Maybe you could have a look in charity shops for things that would clean up, little toys etc.ask around for donations of unwanted gifts. Wrap them in Christmassy fashion cellophane and bows and advertise as "pocket money priced" and encourage children to buy for friends & family
