I just got invited to be the only cupcake/cookie vendor at a craft fair in my town.  I am a legally-operating cottage industry working out of my home.  Do I need to get a vendor's license to sell at a craft fair?  Does anyone know?

I think that you should ask the organizers of the fair and whatever agency you got your license from to open your cottage business.

 

Personally, I don't know anything about Ohio. I went through it once on a bus in the middle of the night over 25 years ago.

LOL...thanks.  Ohio's a beautiful state.  You should come back! 

 

I've been scouring the laws.  My 12 years paralegal experience is helping.  I am fine...since food not consumed on premises isn't taxable, I don't need the license.  I am working on a storefront business and I know everything's about to change for me, so it's good to check on these things, anyway!
