How much is too much? Can an Etsy shop have too much stock?

I am curious how much is too much to have in a shop? I just LOADED my shop (425+) pieces and now I am afraid I have too much. At craft shows I have had people complain that they are overwhlemed by choices, but do you think it is different online?
Gah, I am obsessing. Thanks for listening.

I personally do think I get overwhelmed, especially online. If it's a shop that I really like and I know I want to buy, I feel compelled to look at every single page (assuming there's no section that perfectly matches what I'm after). So for me, after 6 pages of products, I kinda tune out...

I think a large selection is best although if you don't have steady sales here I think it's a waste. I bring everything with me to shows and have over 200, 250 pieces (mostly hats) on 2 tables. You never know what color, material or anything else someone is looking for in particular!
