One thing is that if you try to sell it yourself as your own company selling direct to customers, you will work hard and probably have to spend all your hours a day busy with it. So I'd advise you to take the easy way out and try to get a chain store to distribute it.
I'm not who you think I am.

But building up the listing can be far more difficult than sales in person
