Pasar Malam, carboot sales, vendors cart in a shopping mall. Or online. Or put them up for sale in the classified section of this site for free. Or get an account with eBay and flog them.

Create an online shop with shopping cart and online payment facilities. Of course, you'll then need to find ways to attract online shoppers to your site.

There are some businesses around like...Pandora's box? in Cathay Cineleisure, which rent out a shelf for a few hundred dollars a month. Some figure like that. Then you place your stock there and have to come in and maintain it, and stock it up. But it gives you an indication if there is a market demand for your product before you commit to a push cart! :)

renting a box for your type of products may be a good choice as there will be customers who walk into the shop to browse and your product may interest them and if they buy it, you have a walking advertisement. and the best thing about it is that you can allow customers to purchase it immediately at the shop instead of having to wait.

the cost of setting up an online shop could be lower, but would not be of any use if you do not have traffic. generating traffic to your website is a cost you have to factor in too. so it may work out to be about the same as renting a box
