Well, I just quit my job today. I know- the worst timing in the world.. but I just can't be there anymore..

So.. I've been thinking of sending what little money I have on over to Awal to buy a crapload of crafty stuff to sell here. But I have no idea what's involved in all that. Anyone done anything of the sort or have any idea where to start looking for information?

My only suggestion is to be careful b/c customs will charge you tax you for importing goods from another country if too much is sent at one time.

I haven't done it myself, but I know of a lot of RPCVs who have done it. They sell beads, drums, masks, xylophones everything. I remember a couple of them buying space on a crate to have it shipped to the US. If you go to www.ghanarpcv.org they might be able to help you. I'm not entirely sure how to register on the site if you're not an RPCV, but I'm sure there is a way.
