Owner loves this business but is retiring for health reasons. visit the web site to get a look at how interesting and fun this business can be. If you like baskets, colors, creating new products, photography, selling and marketing then this may be worth checking out. At this stage of the business it is excellent for providing a modest income for a small investment and is ideal for a home based business, however it could easily be grown to a higher level. The business includes established and reputable suppliers/manufacturers in Africa (Ghana and South Africa provide the bulk of the products).
