Help with a Dutch sign

Hi, I am a potter.  I will be attending my first craft fair in Mheer tomorrow (Sunday).  I want to make a sign that says: Select 4 items, get the lowest priced one for free.  Google translate suggests: Selecteer 4 Krijgen de laagst geprijsde punt voor gratis.  Is this ok?  Could you give me a better suggestion?  





(if you are in the area (between Maastricht and Valkenburg) you should visit <g>)

Another option would be:


4 halen 3 betalen*

(*Goedkoopste product gratis)


The phrase ["n" halen "n-1" betalen] is quite common in this context because it rhymes and sounds good. Usually it's 2 halen 1 betalen, but larger amounts like 4 and 3 would work as well.


Good luck!

Kies vier producten en krijg de goedkoopste gratis.


Good luck with selling!

Thanks for the answers.  The Kerstmarkt in Mheer is a nice venue.  Unfortunatly there was icy rain that day, so not many people.  


thanks again
