Just last weekend I helped organize the Fedora Project booth at the Ohio
Linux Fest.  A picture during booth setup of what we had can be seen here:


It was a smaller 6' table/booth.  We had a laptop running Core 5 that
served two duties - a demo machine and when not doing that looping
through a Fedora Core 5 "movie" of sorts that highlighted various Fedora
features.  We had DVDs on hand to distribute, which even late in the
Core 5 cycle were pretty popular.  We had handouts highlighting the OS
features as well as a handout that offered some ways people could help
the Fedora Project.  We also had Fedora T-Shirts and stickers available
for a small donation.  And of course we had the big banner up behind us.

Overall our booth saw a good amount of traffic.  The banner hanging out
behind us with the T-shirts displayed just below it served well to let
people see who we were even when there were several people talking to us.

I think a good example of a flyer is to look at Ubuntu's:
