Sorry to hear about your not so good of experience. Rich has good info for you and I would suggest following his advice.
I’ve never done shows, only attended a few.

I sell only farm tables and syp cutting boards, and have dealers. not on consignment. They order they pay with their order. I’ve had these dealers since the 90’s and we’ve been through the good years and bad years together. Their Christmas orders are in and they want them in September no later than October so I’m slammed with work all through the summer.

Cutting boards are a flooded market now. I’ve seen them on Etsy, Ebay, Craigslist and Amazon for prices that are so cheap they’re laughable. I can’t imagine how they price them so cheap.

Follow Rich’s advice and find shows that are well organized and well promoted. Things will most likely improve for you then.

Good luck
