As far as I know, most pre-existing retail sites (Bigcartel, Etsy, Storenvy, etc.) take a percentage or have subscription fees. Some of them don't take very much though so it might be worth looking into.

It wouldn't be very elegant, but you could do it for free if you just set up a blog on a free blogging site and list every item as a blog post. if you did it that way, you would have to conduct the actual business via email then Paypal though and I personally would be a lot more likely to buy something if I could do it through an established site that keeps track of all the orders and stuff.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
