If anyone would like to check out my facebook page for my sticks.It's named "Legacy sticks". I don't know how to do a web page so that'll wait until I find someone who I can hire.

I've visited a site called Etsy a number of times over the years. Its devoted to online sales by craft people. It has been recommended to me a few times by people who are making sales of paintings. It doesn't seem to be as prone to attracting unwanted attention.

I have an old friend who worked in finance, was a systems administrator and a compliance officer. His opinion of Facebook is quite low if one wishes to guard ones privacy.

I don't know what toolkits facebook might offer, or what sort of web page they allow. I would suppose they have simple layout tools as part of membership. Basic web page creation is very simple. I haven't looked for some years, but there used to be free templates and free or cheap editors. Used to be, a 90 minute course was enough to get on started making web pages. If you have the time, you might save a few $ setting up the page for yourself, tho' it won't be as sophisticated as most pages are these days.

You need a domain name and then a web host. Depending the domain name is around 15 a year...be careful of the free ones. The web host can run a bit under $100 a year. A lot of web hosts have a user control panel which has a bunch of tools...including web design templates. Keep in mind getting the web site up and running is just the beginning, and then you have to promote it and optimize it to be listed in the search engines (seo, search engine optimization).

Lots of people will use a free blog, such as "Wordpress" to get a site up and running. That might be a free option for you. JMO
