Hi Cody.

Some IAP members list a website in their profile for items they are selling as a business. And while you could probably list pens for sale in the "Marketplace - For Sale" forum, I suspect that as most members are penturners, it will need to be a pretty special pen to gain much interest.

So, a simple answer, generally not. Members are more interested in improving their skills and sharing their knowledge. And, as is going on now in a separate thread, we like to exchange pens in trades.

Having said that, I have purchased at times pens from turners that I admire, through their websites, or private PM's.

I would surmise that most people here are sellers, not buyers. A great many on this forum sell in stores, at fairs, and online at their own web sites. You would not be selling to them.

You could ask Jeff and there is a vendor section and market place. Be aware that the primary purpose here is to assist pen turners in the art of making pens. And if yours is exceptional and original, others will copy. Some of us don't mind and some do not put their original designs here due to copying. You will probably find a better audience in public places than here, as people here can buy the parts and make it for themselves without having to pay you for your time. I am not trying to be rude but I do want to let you know the reality of it. That is probably the reason no one sells here.

As Mark James said, there have been pens sold through this forum, but it is usually a private matter through a Private Message (PM) - i.e. more of a private request from a buyer than a seller.

I will admit that you are very observant! I never thought of that question for this forum! It is usually the observant ones who do well! It might take them a time or two but they will find a way!

Here's a link for the rules: General Rules for using the IAP Marketplace

Look like you are welcome to offer pens for sale - go for it!
