I am also in the begging stages of opening a boutique and what I have found that may be helpful is tradeshows.Shows like the Magis Show in Las Vegas which is held every February and August of each year is a great way to get your name iut there and to get exposed to both low end and high end products.As long as you have your wholesale license/seller's permit, tax id and business cards to prive that you are a legit company, registration is free!Also going to other stores that are like the one you want to open and asking to see if they have wholesale info!
