You need to get these onto Amazon, or at least a web site with a merchant setup.

I wonder if selling on Amazon -- aka The [Bezos] Borg-- is a good idea. I've read of the increasing problems and hassles of selling on Amazon.
Maybe in the past (the distant past) it would have been a good, if not the best, way to go.

But from what I've seen of the craftsmen (and -women) who make stuff and then showcase it on the appropriate forum(s)-- e.g. the RPF, Reddit, specialty forums etc,-- word gets around pretty fast, and the artist/craftsman usually has no problem at all getting sales.
I know with absolutely certainty of one in particular who makes Middle Earth related art/collectibles who scorns the Borg, yet is inundated with customers.

Will these be available via your stand at various events, i.e. Asylum?

I've been selling books and toys on Amazon for about 10 years. I ship out a significant number of orders each day, like clockwork. It works well for me because I constantly have sales every day, and I consistently ship everything out every day, and that's how it's been since a few months into that first year.

Now if I only stocked a few items, and only got a sale every few days, it might not work; I would probably forget to check on the orders, be late in shipping them out, and get kicked off the web site.

The two significant problems: Other sellers modifying the photos and descriptions so that they no longer match what I have in stock, and buyers claiming that they never got the item in an attempt to scam a refund (tracking and diligent investigation through the post office is the only defense.)

If you are selling anything fragile or collectable, never send it to Amazon's warehouse for fulfillment. It's like having the Samsonite gorilla handle your merchandise.
