Default Import / Export

The idea of buying low and selling high has always been the game plan. I would like to import an item and pay a fair price in US Dollars and then sell at a good markup. This would provide some people in poor countries with money and hopefully myself with a bit of a profit.

Such a big world, but you have to start somewhere. I'd check into the International Folk Art Alliance. They have an annual tradeshow in Santa Fe, NM which brings in artists from around the world. It seems to me based on your short description, that it fits with the goals you are after.


I'd start by looking for products from someone with experience. Working with an existing organization may be a route forward to identify products/people.
