What strikes me the most here and there in this interesting blog is how the OP found immediate solutions to some of his problems just looking outside his door, instead of the internet. Why do not go with the full local route then, next time? Less adventorous than moving threads globally but hopefully more rewarding economically (time vs hassle vs ROI)?

Because most of the cheap production is in China / Indonesia / Vietnam. I doubt you can find many local products that you can sell with high margins, justifying all the Amazon fees and your time.
