    Finding wholesalers

    coffeenut Newbie
      Hi, I am in the midst of trying to create a business plan. In trying to determine what kind of capital I will need for my startup inventory, I am finding it very difficult to find legitimate wholesalers.

      It is my understanding tha vendors make themselves more accessible to established businesses, so how does one find the best wholesale provider before their retail business is up and running?

      I have found my niche market as a craft supply store and would love to have a starting inventory that will attract the scrappers and the jewelry makers as well as the usual crafts most moms have to buy for school projects as that will be the biggest demand in my area.

      Can anyone advise me on finding supply vendors for price comparison before I am ready to make a purchase or open my doors?
