Long distance shopping

So one of the things I brought a lot of back from Crete last year was olive oil. My neighbour sells it retail and lots of friends asked so I brought a load back. This year its even more popular. So rather than just buy it for them should I buy it for me and sell it on? I was thinking that might be a good idea but if we are leaving the EU then is it suddenly going to get very difficult. The oil in fantastic, sells itself really, so it is full of potential. One lady at work wants 20kg, for herself and an artisan bread making friend. What to do, what to do. I don't mind making the effort as my neighbour is very kind and gives us so many things, like the best olives in the world, but does it have any potential. Having said that there is a family which has trees right there in our valley which sells their oil in Brighton. They seem to live half a year in each, and it seems to be doing very well.

Last year I took my camera to the market and photographed all the things I thought people would like and posted them on facebook. It doesn't sound much but to a few ladies in Matala market I think we made quite a difference.

    1. If you have friends that would also love it then I can use a good excuse for a trip to Brighton but delivering one tin is just me being indulgent and having a day out!
