That seems to be a really small sliver of potential customers.

Not to poo-poo your idea, but there seems to be easier ways to make money if you want to run a shop. Like cupcakes.

It's not like I'm going to run out and open a shop right away, I was just curious to know if it were a good idea. You're right in the sense that online is the overtaking traditional business. Even on online shop is hard to start I would assume, especially with the likes of TW
