    I congratulate you on a fine idea, however, unless you are a super salesman and are loaded with money for a nice trendy/artsy shop somewhere in NY or LA, I say forget about it. All the stuff including Fisherman Pants, Muay Thai paraphernalia and fake Louis Vuitton bags are already available on Ebay for almost nothing. Better move to Thailand and open your own Pattaya bar. I think there is a post by Cantona somewhere on this that will get you started in the right direction.

    ^Exactly, buddha. It's been done before and people left with mountains of unsold tat after thinking what a wonderful idea it is. The profit margin is only 'incredible' if you can actually sell the stuff for hard currency and you have real buyers lined up with wallets open. Selling clearly fake bags etc can also get you into hassle in the West.

    Re: exporting goods from Thailand

    First off, sorry for not introducing myself. Hello, I'm Samantha and I'm considering trying to start exporting from Thailand.

    Secondly, thanks for all of your words of advice. Though I was not asking for past experiences of people who have tried and failed in their exporting attempts. I was wondering if anyone knew about Thai trade law. So thanks for your friends stories, but I just need facts or where to get information about the regualtions.

    Golly!

    The profit margin would be incredible, eh?!

    And you need us to help you achieve this?

    If only we'd thought of it first!

    spazz.

    Really sammi? I'd have thought the experiences of such people would be quite instructive.

    Unless you're a multi nic troll spazz.

    Aye, fake bags, watches, trading cards, etc, and you'll have unwanted attention from Trading Standards in no time in the UK.

    Surprisingly, at markets, no hassle about fake Playboy items for some reason.

    Hold on a sec while I email you my degree in Business, experience in international trade, and specific knowledge on Thai customs and tarriffs - all for free just because you asked for it anonymously.

    Don't worry - I don't need any compensation for the money and years of hard work I've spent accumulating that knowledge.

    Try getting off your ass and googling the information up or simply call the US or appropriate embassy and ask for the trade division.

    Re: exporting goods from Thailand

    It is my understanding that you will have little trouble with Thai law exporting most goods. However, there are always some restrictions on some goods. It is best to go to a Thai attorney or the Thaivisa.com forum. It is US law that may stand in your way. The advice to get info from the US is one good place to start.

    It's the tariff rates in the U.S. for imports that you need to worry about. I'm not aware of any countries that impose export tariffs...on the contrary, many of them offer incentives.

    Re: exporting goods from Thailand

    He's probably just had some brainwave about exporting cambodian marlboros.

    Maybe wrapping them in clingfilm with a lighter thrown in is his USP.

    FAR more likely though ....
