I wonder if it' a place for me

    Hi, I am so bored going through different google searches. What a waste of time.
    Me, I use to work as a designer and technological supervisor in advertising company in Warsaw at the quite crazy time when it was growing so, so fast. I specialized in difficult projects and I have to say that chalenges were interesting. But after 7 years I started to hate my life. Always busy and in a hurry. Designing and manufacturing rubbish. It was not my goal. I quit. I sold some lamps in art galleries; done some exclusive pieces of furniture for shops and designed interiors and furniture linesfor retail chains. At that time I met most of my client through contact after I sold my paintings.
    I moved to Scotland in 2005 and worked as CNC router operator and programer. As It was not enough for my ambition I started to make plans to reopen business on my own.
    At the moment I work on two lamps: big(over 1200x600mm) polycarbonate ceiling one And super efficient 3W LED bedside one. Apart from electrics both are made from offcuts and other things found in a skip. As I'm nearly finished them I started to look for a way to sell them on the internet.
    Any advice?

    Hi Ako, welcome to DF.

    Might I suggest something similar to a portfolio site. You might have your company bio & contact details, as well as a "latest projects" section where people can find out about specific projects & are given your contact details.

    You might also want to look at etsy. It's a market place for people to sell homemade stuff, although your projects sound more upmarket than the stuff I usually see on there.
