I am with dpd1 in terms of the ship has sailed re cheap Chinese junk. Look at what people are blogging about and complaining about. Look at the new consumer movements for local and small. Example: Yesterday I helped a friend with no knowledge of or interest in local or small get some new dishes online, and he specifically asked for stuff NOT from China because he was concerned about quality. He wasn't buying Versace, either. He just wanted some decent, safe dishes. I myself make a point of not buying anything from China if I can help it. Local and small is the wave of the future.
I do think there are different ways to sell, and the race to the bottom price-wise, which has to involve Chinese junk, is one way to do it. But to me, this is way too much like work. If I were you, I would be selling camshafts. Or better yet, put up a content site about camshafts.
