E-commerce: a fun hobby

I also own and operate various e-commerce web businesses.
To successfully sell products on the internet, I try to select products that are:
  • Niche and specialized, unavailable in retail stores
  • Consumable (i.e. they get used up and must order more each month)
  • Available from a reliable manufacturer who supports both the product and the customer
  • Legal and ethical
  • And, of course, must be in demand

Here are links to a few of the sites:
