If you are in Colorado, that's a good place to start, it has a lot of galleries, and basically a year around market.

I don't know if editions or one of a kinds will work the best, but why not make up a small collection, read the articles here on this website on how to price, and then take them around to the galleries? They might want to consign, or buy some and consign some. Or, you could simply sell them outright, it's up to you.

Another thing you could do, is walk around your local art/craft fairs to see who is doing work in the same category, strike up some friendships and learn what you can.

And then, why not form a local crafts group of artists in your area, you can meet and share strategies.
