I would like to start selling or trading my plants through the mail. And I would like to do it just bare root but with some Moss to keep it alive and under cost. How do I know how much it will be and how much should I Sell them for?

I live in Michigan.

I've found that you don't even need the LFS, wrapping in a bunch of damp to wet paper towels is fine.
How much you should sell them for depends on a lot of things, and it's really up to your discretion.

I actually wrap the roots in a little bit of slightly damp potting mix surrounded by plastic wrap and tied with a rubber band. I don't think anyone besides me does it this way, but it works very well and is cheap and easy.
