Incorporating Fads or Trends in design

Recently I was thinking about adding a new line of buttons with fun little sayings on my Etsy shop, HappyDogButtons. This one is popular right now,  'Keep Calm and ...'. There are many variations and they are alot of fun, but I hesitate. Another line would be the Twilight series.

Do I incorporate a new design or line of items because they are popular? How much of that item do I make? You want to have enough product that someone will find something they like, but at the same time I don't want to end of with a large quanity that I have to end of selling at clearance.

How do you handle this? Do you only make what you love or try to incorporate the latest trend?

Leave me your ideas or take my poll on my facebook page, HappyDogButtons.
