One of my colleagues likes selling very much. She's an accountant. However, she always try to looking for the way to sell any things. Yesterday, she contacted with kid bags provider. Because she doesn't have enough money, so she got bags and to sell them on sidewalk. Every things look good until the police drive away her! She must bring all goods to run, if not the police would get them. At the end, she didn't sell any bags! She was very disappointed and she wants to give up! She says that she'll get back all goods for providers if she wouldn't sell any bags on this night.

Well, that is a good business idea. But she should secure a permit for not always approach by the police and confiscate her trade...

She won't be permitted if she ask the police about this. Moreover, she only sell in a short time (we're in traditional holiday here), so she want to earn extra money. If I like her, I also do like this.

They will not give a permit because there's maybe a law that prohibit someone to sell something located in the street. Find out first what laws being violated if you do so. Before you continue doing it...

I was smiling when I was reading your post because the situation there is so similar here in my country, people here also sell on the sidewalk but if the police comes , they will not only drive you away, they will confiscate all your goods and if you are not lucky enough you will be brought to the nearest precinct. although there is nothing bad with earning a little extra, I think it is not right to sell in the sidewalks because it belongs to the pedestrians, otherwise they would be walking dangerously on the streets, maybe it would be wiser for your friend to sell to office mates, friends and relatives or online instead.

There are many people sell on sidewalk here. And I think that they can earn much money. The police have done any things to make them give up. But finally, they can't.
