    Hi Rick
    I had a rented space at the local farmers market on Saturday mornings to sell my carvings, the first couple days sales were no very good, but by the third day I was sell more carving because of my exposure to the public. Hope this idea helps

          Sell them on ETSY, Rick! Fees are very low, and you do it all in the comfort of your home - no drafty/cold/hot flea markets/farmers markets. Good info in this thread:

            Why not post a few pics so the experts on here can help you with the pricing? Who knows someone might make an offer.

              I’m with Claude. Sell them on Etsy. You’ll get more and it’s a fun thing to do. It’s easy and super user friendly. It’s also reasonably priced.

                  Not really - I buy boxes by the bundle at the Office Depot on line (buy more than a certain amount of $$ and shipping to you is free) as well as some large rolls of bubble wrap; you can also get the rolls of packing tape there (but I get mine at Costco). Takes me just a few minutes to wrap and box something. Etsy also will sell you a postal shipping label for the item for less cost than over-the-counter at the p_ost office.
