    Charging $15 that you have $9 plus paint and time in doesn't sound like enough money. And then add in time and expense to get it to where you're going to sell it. You'd make more money working for minimum wage.

    Just my opinion.

        Well i know i may be snapped at but just starting out i wouldnt use primer not even sealer. If you are wanting to do that then get some of the rustoleum primer and then use the cheapest can of krylon over that w/optional sealer. Now be aware if you dont want to use primer right off i would suggest using sealer though because it adds a ''gloss" look to it and would be more actractable to buy

                                I'm thinking a minimum of $25 since you have $10 in materials (horseshoes, welding consumables, grinding wheels, and paint) in each one not including build time. In addition, you have to drive to the craft show and spend additional money just to have the space for a couple days to sell plus the time spent selling. Ebay is kinda expensive, but at least you wouldn't have the money spent on gas.
