A contest!

Since I've been laid off from work, I decided to use the time that I'll be on severance to set up a business for myself. I'll be importing handcrafts from Mexico, and selling them at retail here. At first I'll sell from festival booths, the flea market, and online. Hopefully, I'll make enough money that I'll be able to open a small store eventually.

I have spent hours online and on the phone researching everything that needs to be done to get this going. I'm excited! I'm ready to make it happen.

But I can't think of a name for it. I had chosen a few, but when I researched them, they were already in use.

So, I figured the more people brainstorming, the better. And that's where you come in!

Send me suggestions that I can use for a name (One that I had chosen was Mayahuela Imports, but there is already a Maya Imports, and it's just too close), either by using the comment field here or e-mail me direct at If I use your suggestion you won't get any financial reward, but I will send you a small hand-crafted item imported from Mexico as a prize.

If you use the comment field here, you have to type in the word-verification to make it post. I know that's a pain, but I was getting way too much comment spam on the blog. Sorry.

So, put those thinking caps on, and let's come up with a name for my business!

How about Feliz Mexican Imports?

Definitely an idea I can play around with, I hadn't been thinking along those lines. If you want to let me know who you are, I'll send you a prize just for responding.
