Great American Bake Sale - What's gonna sell well?

A local business is going to be one of the sites for a bake sale for the Great American Bake Sale, and they've asked me to contribute some baked goods. I know what I like to bake, but I'm curious if you think these things will sell well.

Their plan is to have a whole lot of inexpensive items, like a dollar each for a single cupcake, and then have some big items for auction.

I was thinking that I'd like to make breadsticks, which could be packaged in bags of a dozen, and then maybe some biscotti. I chose those two because they're fine if they're baked a day or two ahead, so I can take my time getting it all done. I was thinking I could do bread, but that's the sort of thing that would need to be baked that day, which might be a little troublesome, and a whole bread for a dollar is too cheap compared to the single cupcake. I could do a batch of buns and divide them up, but how many buns would be worth a dollar? And do you think people would buy them? Or just stick with the breadsticks and biscotti because they have a longer shelf life?

There are already people doing brownies and cupcakes, so that's probably pretty well covered.
