Dana would probably know the answer
Something like this, Etsy is probably the best bet to start. There’s nothing saying you couldn’t also cross list them onto eBay, amazon, or a few others. I’ve used ebay, etsy, amazon, poshmark, and am about to start using Mercari (us only)
What’s their size and weight? Guessing 12-16” long, and 1-2lbs? If you’re selling single units, and shipping from NFLD, Canada post is probably your best bet. I wouldn’t ship them without tracking at this value, and that will likely cost $15-25 or more per tray, depending on where your buyer is (I might be off on my estimates. I rarely use Canada Post).
If shipping multiples at a time (say to a bulk buyer), Freightcom probably has the best rates. You ship through them using UPS and they get you a discounted rate. Works well for both Canada/US shipments.
Lastly, if at all possible, shipping from the US is cheaper, faster, and has better tracking. You can use a cross border shipper (don’t think there are any in NF, but there’s one operating a location in Halifax) to do this. Alternatively, I might be able to help/facilitate. I live near a crossing, currently cross the border frequently to ship orders out. You could make a batch (say 5-10), and send them to me. I’d store them, and when they sell, fulfill the orders for you.
Re-reading, I think I’ve rambled enough. Shoot me a message if I can help, or if you want details on anything.
