I hope I have chosen the right forum for theis topic. I have all kinds of paintings dating back to 1993 wheh I was 15 and first taught myself to paint. Now it is just a bunch of clutter (albeit good looking clutter LOL) and I just wish I could sell it all at like $50 or less and get rid of it . Are there any more of these art liquidator sales in Georgia going on where they advertise on TV (Nothing over $50! Everything must go!) Im probably thinking of the Atlanta area, because of the tv ads. However I hear that most of these liquidator sales are mass produced art, not original art pieces. Does anybody have any ideas? This weekend I am going to particioate in a nearby flea market (Hampton) and try my luck there. I'm open to suggestions.

Flea market is a good idea. You could try craigslist or a garage sale. Another idea is a consignment shop. good luck!

Craigslist is tainted big time. Good luck getting any serious responses from Craigslist the vast majority of the replies will be from scammers.

Have you tried Etsy?

Google "art fair" and also "art league" and your location and see what you find. An art fair is usually a one-time deal where you pay for booth space. If it is "juried" you will need to send samples of your work to be accepted. It's a bit more work, but the audience will also be a bit more narrow/focused than at a flea market.

Local art leagues often offer galleries where members can sell their work. You may need to pay a membership fee or volunteer hours in order to participate.

Our local farmers market offers booth space to artists and craftspeople. You may check to see if some in your area do as well.

Local (not chain) cafes, coffee shops and hair salons will sometimes allow artists to hang (and sell) work in their space.

If you work is high-quality you might consider contacting local interior designers/decorators.

Good luck.
