I do this kind of thing all day, especially graphics & design, so I'd
be happy to help. But I wonder if there might be an easier way to do
it. For now at least, it's simple enough to just create a PayPal
button when we need to sell a thing, and let PayPal's checkout system
handle everything else. That's actually what we do for our classes at
Dan's, and it's been fine.
Actually, if we want to do a full storefront, there's a simple system
that I've used with WordPress called Ecwid. We could set up a blog and
a storefront at the same time and kill two birds with one stone.
What kinds of things would we like to offer for sale, other than
registration for this workshop? I could see doing things like logo
t-shirts and whatnot to help raise money, but then it's also time to
start talking about our financial situation a little more seriously,
too. Like, we need a bank account.
