What British goods did the Colonists boycott?

Actually, they didn't boycott goods as much as it seems. They did what we would do and that is to look for the cheaper price. One of the goods involved was tea. Many goods the colonist bought were from colonial smugglers because they were cheaper. When the British lowed the price of the tea it made the Dutch tea higher in price so the smugglers were loosing money. Two of the biggest smugglers were Hancock and Hamilton . Hancock supported, organizesd and paid for the Son's of Liberty. This was an economic issue and the smugglers were fighting for their lives.
