55. my wife and I own a small import shop
we direct import from Thailand, Nepal, and Indonesia. We also carry stuff from other Central and Southeast Asian countries. We've been doing this for eight years, so far.

We carry a lot of clothes, jewelry, incense, and home decor items, with a heavy emphasis on "dharma gear".

This business, although it has made money every now and then, has never supported us - one or the other of us has had a "real" job most of the time. The first few years it looked like we might be able to build the store into something ... but the Bush economy has been very hard on our dreams.
