PostSubject: What Wholesale Items are you in search of in Oz?   Thu Feb 11, 2010 12:43 am

Hi Ladies,

I am starting to get my wholesale business up and running and am importing TONS of stuff. I know what I use (and I've pretty much got those items covered), but I'm just wondering what you ladies are looking for to do your bows, clips and headbands that you have to order from the US or abroad, that you would like to see stocked in Australia, including the size and colour if applicable.

I can't promise everything posted here will be stocked, but I'd just like to expand my lines and help you ladies out in turn.

Items I currently have stocked:
- 1.5 inch crochet headbands
- 25mm self cover metal buttons
- Infant and toddler kufi/beanie hats
- snap clips in various sizes
- french barrettes in various sizes
- alligator clips (single and double prong)
- 1.5 inch Nylon headbands
- Plastic white headbands - 12mm, 25mm and 35mm
- Plastic white headbands with foam- 14mm and 25mm

Hopefully you can help me out and I can help you out in turn! Thanks :-)

Here is what I am always on the hunt for a great price:

Cute Printed 3/8 grosgrains, especially M2MG that isn't $$$$.
Metal bobby pins with pads,
Bulk lots of 50 pre covered and centred fabric buttons, I know I can make them but time is a factor here most days!
Decent Hair elastics that are metal free and don't break after 2 mins use
Bulk lots of Hot glue guns sticks
Bulk pre cut non slip grips, I know I can make them but when I do a run of 500 hair ties for a school order I don't want to muck around.
Cute Fabrics to make the buttons in similar colour ways sort of like this

Thats all my pregnant brain can think of atm and I hth, look forward to buying more from you in the future.

Hi Gena Leigh,

I would be interested in all that was mentioned, especially pretty patterned ribbons in various sizes and colors that are not too expensive.

Will you have a wholesale site that we can buy from? or would we need to contact you directly. This would be great to buy from someone who is in oz.

Take Care

Hi ladies,

Thanks for all of your input. As soon as China reopens from their New Year holiday, I will be sourcing more items and pricing. I would love to get some ribbon buys going, as I am going broke paying postage on items from the US!

My wholesale site is slated for to be up and running from the 1st of April or before. I will announce it when it's live.

Keep the suggestions coming!

Gena

Would love to be a part of some custom ribbon design buys as well, if there was enough interest. I'd really love to be able to have the ladies in the US buying from us in those terms. Bird ribbon like the one used in this bow would be amazing

That is TOO CUTE! I'm thinking about asking a girlfriend of mine from the States if she wants some graphic design work (she's an out of work designer). If there is anything else you're interested in, let me know.

PostSubject: Snap Clips   Tue Mar 09, 2010 5:10 am

Hey Kylie,

Here is what I have (30mm, 40mm and 50mm).



They are all the heavier ones (not the flimsy ones that feel like the metal is paper). If you want a sample before you buy, more than happy to pop one in the post for you this afternoon.

Let me know.

The clips are on their way. And if you keep saying that you're 'sorry you're being a pain' I'm not going to sell to you anymore! You're so NOT a pain. I hope they work for you, but if they don't, don't feel obligated. Everyone is different!
