Selling dolls as a business...
« on: December 02, 2019, 01:25:48 AM »
Hello Community-
My name is Spencer. I'm in the process of selling my sign company and I've been looking for a new business to get into. I was surfing when I happened upon TPE dolls. Holy S**T!! I had no idea these things existed! I live in Portland, Oregon. This is a very sexual town and I've never seen these dolls before. Where have these dolls been hiding?! I think these dolls would be very popular here and across the US...If more men only knew about them.

Having said that, I think this would be a great business to get into. I'm speaking with a Chinese supplier about making a volume purchase and also renting a commercial space here in Portland.

Any advice from the experts?...

Thank you all!    ~Spencer

I'd suggest looking around here.

We've been around a decade, and some of us have been around a lot longer.

If you are thinking about opening a retail brick and mortar business, my only concern is that the wholesalers will be your biggest competition.

Perhaps you should get a personal doll, and see what's involved before committing to an entire shipping container.

LOL! They've been hiding in plain sight for years.

Camp gave good advice. Might want to just get one and learn the ins and outs before diving in whole hog.  :evil:
