Ow to sell my pottery? Do I need a business name?? Any help please!!!!!?

"m wanting to sell my pottery on the side. I don't really want to do consignment (although I may) But I'm more curious in selling at either craft fairs or through a website (prefer not to use eBay). Questions: - Do I need a legal business name - and where do I go to get this (how much do they run typically?) - Anyone familiar with booth presentation at fairs? They say they want a pic of booth presentation - what's up with this? - Do you know of any websites that explain how to set up a website for selling stuff? Professional but on the budget side? - Where can I get a list of art shows going on around my area (georgia) - would it be the Chamber of each county? Any help would be great. I'm a single mom, in college with a full-time job. I have very unique, functional pottery that amazingly sells very well (was with a pottery business for a while) and I need to start a small - at home side business for a little extra cash. Just need to know what I need to get started.

I would consider selling at flea markets and craft shows. You don't want to outlay too much money upfront until you at least show some substantial profit. A lot of businesses started from a card table at a flea market.
