The only good trade shows shows where imported handcrafts are welcome would be the George Little Management shows -- New York, Boston and Washington DC are their east coast venues. You'll find a link to GLM by going to Features ==> Helpful Links on this site.
You are going to have difficulty finding any street fairs that welcome imports. All I can suggest is that you do your homework here.
If the work is good, and you're straight about its origin, you should be able to find a distribution of it -- but it's not going to be easy. One thing you might consider is being on the lookout for sales reps covering your territory who might be interested in your lines. Ask the store owners who they might be, and you'll definitely find them at the GLM trade shows.
