” Primary source of sales.”

You have a lot of competition in the big wide web. How are you going to get anyone to find you?
I woudl suggest setting up an ETSY account and putting your products there. Once you get the sale, you can direct them to your website so they can order directly. Doing some craft shows will help spread the word, as you will meet people who are interested but not buying right now.

Since you are located in Bolivar, I would suggest trying a couple of shows close by to feed people to your website. Shows I would suggest: International Festival in Tulsa in May, Walnut Street Festival in Springfield in the fall & spring, War Eagle in War Eagle AR in October, Festival of the Little Hills in St Charles MO in August.
I am not aware of any decent craft shows in KC but I am sure there are, just haven’t found it yet. All of these shows would not require much travel time for you and are large audiences (200,000+ attendance).

I have been dropping some shows as I have become more successful with the wholesale side of my business. I still do the Tulsa, War Eagle & Little Hills shows. I do these shows since they are less than a day travel for me as I am located in Ferguson MO.
