For sure I can tell you cotton and fur pelts. I would assume tobacco as well. Spices from the East Indies maybe?

The big ones back in the 18th century were cotton, tobacco, sugar, spices, ivory, tea, fur pelts, ..... I think I covered the big ones. (Those would virtually all be imports though, not sure about the exports… revolutionary fever?)

@laceykorn; Welcome to fluther. Keep in mind, however, that we don’t do homework, unless its our own. This info would be extremely easy to Google.

If you want the smart alec answer, the french were exporting themselves and importing metal for Gullotine(sp?) blades. Really though, I think Westy81585 has it right…

@westy81585 is on the right track, but laceykorn needs to refine her research just a tad.
