We shall start with the more popular one and that is how to sell at conventions.
Well, first of all make sure you have the proper paperwork. Selling in the U.S requires either a sellers permit or a business license. The difference between the two is a sellers permit is free but temporary, and a business license you have to pay for but is indefinite. I currently use a quarter period sellers permit, so I can sell anywhere for 6 months without needing a new permit. At the end of said 6 months I report how much money I made and pay taxes. That's right, you have to pay taxes. Even if you are a minor, a sellers permit requires you to pay taxes on your earnings. Though most of the money you make is untraceable cash so the government doesn't know how much you make *cough* so you know... be honest and report %100 of all your earnings as a responcible adult *wink* *wink*
