Hello - I suppose you have read enough about the shortage of good-paying jobs. Another short-coming of my area is the lack of diversity in restaurants and shopping.

Now, if you had the capital to open a good Irish pub, you would be welcome!

OK, Wilmington has a couple of Irish pubs. I was speaking of further up the coast, like Surf City. All we get is American food.

I am not sure how well a tea shop would do, as I don't think Americans understand the tea break customs. At 4 o'clock most would rather stop work and have a beer.

But, the Irish jewelry and merchandise might sell.

Hello from Dublin Ireland.

You should open an Irish pub there as Americans love the Irish and our pubs. You would do well there my friend.

what you describe doesn't sound like much of a moneymaker... but if you could pay the bills doing it, it sounds like you'd fit in fine in downtown wilmington. it's sort of blue-collar eclectic.. doesn't matter where you're from.
