I am a CPA, and deal with sales tax often. As the docs above point out, each state has their own registration requirements. If you are not required, the customer is required to remit it as use tax (same as sales tax), but that is between your customer is his/her god, not for you to check. If the show is large enough, they are often attended by sales tax auditors. They are not there to buy crafts, but may buy one to see how the transaction is handled. FWIW, one rather have 5 IRS audits for every sales tax audit. The IRS is "Mother Theresa" compared to the sales tax guys.
