1  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / If you need something to do Saturday June 4... on: June 03, 2005 11:47:04 AM
There's a good size craft fair in JP, at the Unitarian Church right at the Monument, on the corner of Eliot and Centre Streets from 10-4 on Saturday.  I will be there with my wares, and there's always lots of different kinds of crafters.  The church also holds its annual book sale/yard sale/barbecue so there's lots to do.  And if you've never been to JP, you can mill about the neighborhood and its funky shops, as well as the original JP Licks. 

So come visit!  It's supposed to be nice out, so it's a great day for walking around!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Sales Tax # on: March 09, 2005 01:46:34 PM
I just applied for my sales tax # today---that is, the  number and the certificate I need to collect tax at fairs, etc.  Is this the same thing as a resale tax #?  Is what I have what I need to not pay tax at Joann's, or do I have to find another form for a resale #?  Thanks!
3  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Boston legalities demystified! on: March 09, 2005 01:16:34 PM
I just completed the process to become a legal, tax-collecting business entity, and so I thought I'd let those of you who want to know how it works, how it works:

I went to city hall (a slushy mess, but that's besides the point Smiley ) and went to room 601, the city clerk.  I filled out a form, and right then and there they stamp it, xerox it, notarize it, collect your $50 and send you on your way.  He even wished me good luck.

Then I came home and went to mass.gov/dor, and from there I signed up with WebFile for Business, which is the only way to get your tax collecting #, and from then on, pay what you owe them online.  They have good telephone customer service for any problems or questions.  And that was that!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Should I build a website? on: February 16, 2005 02:40:57 PM
Hello,

I've been doing craft shows for about a year with some success, but I'm thinking about setting up a website to sell my things.  What, honestly, can I expect from a site?  How much do you find it boosts sales?  I've sorted out all the city/state tax stuff, so that once I fill out some forms and fork over $50, I'll be legal as a business.  Is it worth it?

Thanks!
Jen
