    Couldn't you just consider it a hobby that brings in extra cash? Do you really "want" a store? Then you will have to do all of the legal stuff to be considered a "store". Are you wanting to file income tax as "business", get tax exemptions, etc?

    I think you're fine as long as you're small and selling out of your home.
