Shopkeeper Stories Dominican Republic jewellery necklaces Lexington Market Baltimore small business

When I asked him how he got started selling jewellery at the Lexington Market in Baltimore (USA), he didn’t miss a beat. “How I got started? Straight from the bottom! I started with a few necklaces on the table, and… BoOm!”
