    Hi guys

    I decided to go into physical goods. Nothing like feeling cash in your hands :), seeing it in bank is not the same.
    Anyways, I am unsure of product yet and am open to suggestions.

    But here are some pointers. Obviously it should be in demand items.

    Mark Up:
    Preferably I am looking at 100%-300% resale.

    Sales Venue:
    Preferably Craigslist ( I am in the Bay Area), potentially Amazon, EGay

    Price:
    Preferably $200 - $300 items to mark up $400-$600
    will consider smaller items but prefer "less work"

    A No No:
    no replicas, no BS non moving items.

    Initial Investment:
    few hundred to start and will work way up to what ever it takes.
    Open to suggestions.

    Long Term Idea
    Eventually I would like to get into export/import and distribution, cross states, cross countries.
    I have family and friends in Bosnia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, India, New Zealand and would consider wholesale export/import eventually.
    I also have a friend with a store at Phoenix Airport and Hawaii, also could hire sales people to approach local retail businesses if I find reasonable products/suppliers.
    Another option would be flea markets/farmers markets, seminars etc.

    I know this thread is like asking "how to make money online" but I hope to find new business relationships. After all retails still drives the economy.

    thanks

    Adis
