There's a lot of regulations you may need to comply with - not least those relating to liability to third parties and the payment of any taxes for running a business from home.
If you don't want to be caught out take a look at the page I've started to develop on 'Selling Art from Home'. It's not finished but it's got a lot of the key messages for people thinking about selling from home.
Obviously the rules vary depending on where in the world you live.
Do you - or have you considered - selling art from home
I'm very interested in hearing from people who have gone through the process of setting themselves up to sell art from home.
