Flexibility is the name of the game in the import/export industry

Flexibility is the name of the game in the import/export industry. With the flick of a wrist, the Department of Commerce can erase your exporting country off the General System of Preference list it publishes daily and you may have to hop a plane to find a new supplier over night.

Just walk through your local book store or library and notice how many self-help, diet and how-to books there are. This should give you a feel how hungry consumers are for this type of information. Once you”ve read through a few of these types of books, you should know enough about the subject to write a brief five to ten page report. With the computer, you can make the report look very professional through the use of page numbers, double columns, pull quotes in the middle of the pages, and a bold catch title.

Next, wrap the styrofoam in green cellophane and put it into the bottom of the basket

Next, wrap the styrofoam in green cellophane and put it into the bottom of the basket. Take your colored cellophane sheets and cut around fifty 6′ x 10′ rectangles. Don”t worry about making them perfectly sized. Take one of the rectangles and loosely fold it in half the short way (to make a 6′ x 5′ rectangle) and then in half the long way (to make a 3′ x 5′ rectangle). Don”t crease the folds, and again, don”t worry about being perfect - it″ll look better if it″s not. Insert this rectangle into one of the open spaces closed point down (the point that would be the center of the rectangle, if it was unfolded. Do this with 20 to 25 of the rectangles, until the open spaces are filled, though not tightly. Fluff the open corners of the rectangles out. Now, insert your flowers into the styrofoam. Space them out evenly, and put around four inches of the wire down into the foam, so it″s secure. Here”s a tip - slightly curve the wire and insert it at a slight angle, so the flowers sit realistically. Real flower bouquets don”t stand straight up. Finally, take one of the remaining cellophane rectangles, and fold it in the same way as you did with the ‘fill-in’ rectangles. Now, take one of the short green sticks and a six inch length of the thin copper wire. Wrap the wire three or four times around the blunt end of the stick, around 1/8′ from the end. Put around 1/2′ of the closed corner of the rectangle against the blunt end of the stick, and wrap the remaining wire tightly around it. Insert this in the styrofoam, in between the flowers. Do this with the remaining rectangles, cutting more if necessary to completely hide the styrofoam and fill out the basket. When done, fluff the open corners out. You now have a Candy Flower Basket! The best thing about this is the fact that it looks BETTER after the candy is removed! Put a note in with your basket suggesting that people unwrap only the unattached end of the wrapper to remove a candy. The candies look like buds while they”re wrapped they look like blooming flowers with the candy removed! Try it with one of your flowers and you”ll see!

In preliminary discussions, inform the potential client who you are, what you handle, what kind of profit he can make, our prices, and how often you will be around… if you do not place a display the first time, make it a point to be back WHEN YOU SAID YOU WOULD to ask them again (and prove that your word is good).

Buying something old or used, fixing it, and selling it is the heart of recycling. Making something useful from a broken discarded object is not only profitable, but it is an extremely worthwhile thing to do.
