I need some help finding a venue to sell my clocks and furniture. I’ve considered Ebay but I would much rather deal locally and not ship items. Craigslist is just kinda scary to me. I would be concerned about unsavory people knowing that I have thousands of dollars worth of tools in my house. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

How about craft shows and galleries that sell on congignment? Creating work is the fun part and selling it is a different animal if you do not have an established clientelle and referral base.

I was at my local farmer’s market this weekend and noticed a guy selling cutting boards and such… may be worth looking into.

I sell my wooden items at a, once a month street fair for crafts and art, at two different towns. So two Saturdays a month I get a chance to sell. I have used creigs list and have sold a lot of household items there but not much luck with my crafted things. I think what I make sell best to impulse buyers that can touch and feel them.
