To frame or not to frame?

I have been on a roll lately working in oils and acrylics. Lots of florals with urns and pots. Really been enjoying myself. My friends all say I should put them in a gallery and sell them, that they are that good. I looked into one gallery. They want everything framed. I have over a dozen pieces and they are mostly 30" x 40" and to frame them would cost so much. Also the gallery would charge me monthy for just displaying my work. I am on a limited budget. Are there places where I can sell my work without the cost of framing. I have been doing art since age 10 and have always wanted to make a living at selling art. But because of work or moving, (My husband put in 20 years in the navy and we moved a lot.) I never had the opportunity to really sell my work. This last year I have really applyed myself in producing qualily work. But I am at a loss when it come to selling. I thought of getting an web site, but I don't know how to do that. Regardless I want to sell my work. Could anyone out there give me good some solid suggestions???
