    Wholesaler info

    Hi lovely HUKDers,

    I am a stay at home mum, and now I really want to make a little extra cash for the family. I can't go back to work as I have another baby on the way, and my partner's shifts would make it impossible for me to work anywhere part-time.

    Anyway, I digress!! I would love to maybe start selling stuff online and was wondering if anyone knew of any good wholesalers?

    Thanks in advance,

    im not sure of where or what there called, but my friend got an account with a wholesaler and bought loads of the LYDC bags and sold them on ebay, something like that might be worth looking into. she also got makeup and jewellery.

    This is a nice place to start, with lots of helpful advice.
    I hope you have plenty of ballistic protection on, it's a minefield out there.

    thanks - that is all brilliant

    I've looked into this many times, browsing and in depth, you need a opening in the market, as there are so many people on the same bandwagon now. I would love to do it myself, but I just don't think I have the time at the mo with the baby. Good luck though

    A more fun way is charity shop shopping and selling on eBay. Better if you try and "specialize" in something, books, clothes, old games, records, etc. as it will let you focus and see how much you need to pay, and what items go for...I see that you mention "stay at home"mum, do you take the baby out for a walk? I think I have about 5 charity shops within walking distance, so this might be a go'er if you take the baby out in the buggy and you have some local charity shops.
    Good luck!

    That is such a good idea, thank you. I love charity shops and there are quite a few in town that I wander round. How easy that will be with 2 babies and a pram will remain to be seen, but for the next 3 1/2 months its just me and one baby so I will definitely do that. If it wasn't a Sunday I'd go today. That way I won't have to spend out a large amount like you have to with a wholesaler.

    Thanks everyone for your advice. It certainly seems like quite a saturated market right now, but I've racked my brains and can't think of anything better to do whilst at home all day with little ones. :?
