Cody that is a hard one to answer. I have went to 4 art and craft shows. One I made about $300. I sold a lot of pepper/salt mills, mini birdhouse and Christmas ornaments plus several bowls with a couple of HF's. 3 were a bust. I sold maybe $50 at each show. There were a lot of lookers but just nobody buying.
As far as a sales tax license goes I already had one for my clock shop. So I just use it for all my shop stuff including my turning sales. I pay quarterly sales tax. I also use quickbooks for my bookkeeping. I also use a accountant because I depreciate my lathes, tools, buildings and equipment.
I think Pete Jordon had a post on here about a business. I would suggest you check your local and state laws on sales tax, etc.
