    I used to sell a whole lot here on SF, but had to give that up due to time constraints of my current job. However, as some of you may know, I'm a bit obsessed w/the north east chain of stores called Daffy's, particularly their Italian merchandise. I've recently started poking around to see what wholesale prices are like on that kind of merchandise (the better stuff), and it got me thinking about starting a website retailing Italian closeouts -- think a curated version of Yoox/Daffy's/Century 21, but online, and locally available to those in the Philly area.

    I'm just wondering if anyone has experience in setting up an online clothing business. I'm particularly interested in hearing about the process of importing stuff from Italy or Europe in general and what that involves. I'm trying to figure out costs, time, etc...
