- You just saw the perfect dress for a high profile job – for only $298.00 US
- You have a court appearance to make and want to dress respectfully. Price only $80 US
- You’re meeting your boyfriend’s parents for the first time and found the best outfit. Only problem is it’s $169.00 US
Did you know that you can buy the identical outfits, shoes, boots, watches, handbags, and anything that you can wear WHOLESALE?
I used to work for Ralph Lauren back in 1983. His clothes are one of my favorites in style. While browsing on the web I came across a site called tradetang.com. It has everything on it! Then I went to my closet and pulled out some blouses to read the label only to discover that the shirts were made in Indonesia along with other items made in the same region.
I was floored. But wait, there’s more! I used to buy a lot of handbags on ebay. One shipment came with a handbag that I paid $69 US for, but it also had the original tag of the wholesale manufacturer – wholesalehandbags11.com
. The handbag I paid $69 bucks for was for sale for $12.00 US. Yes, TWELVE DOLLARS! (I actually just logged on to the site and found some great handbags for $15.00 US.) But I’m not buying now, I need that money for food.
Here is the Secret of Fashion Trends Exposed
If you want it, Google it using the word WHOLESALE. You’ll find all kinds of sites that retailers from all over the world buy from – and so can you!
Simply create an account with the Wholesale Site, and shop with a purpose. What do I mean by this? Suppose you are out of work, and are finding the job market is scarce. You can buy the items you LOVE and sell them to family, friends, and even to other retail stores!
I discovered a retail store called 9.88 that buys “closeouts” – shoes, boots, handbags, watches, etc. A few months ago I really needed a new pair of sandals. I was looking at Victoria’s Secret website and saw some gorgeous sandals – the only problem were the prices – $49, $69, etc. So I went to 9.88 and bought nearly the IDENTICAL sandals for $5.99 US.
I went into a Brazilian store I came across and bought this gorgeous watch for $3.99 US!! I get so many compliments, and I learned to just say, “Thank you.” If a person asks where I got an item I always share the source.
I knew a woman who owned an entire city block that her store was built upon.It was pretty pricy, high end, but she was so nice. I asked her, “How did you start your business?” She replied, “I started selling stickers out of my garage in Maine.”
Whatever items you love, from baby clothes to boots, linens to bridal items (Catherine Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton’s) parents started “Party Pieces” to beautifully decorate people’s party’s.
Perhaps you can help other women or men dress better if they are going on job interviews and genuinely need to make a conservative, clean cut, distinctive impression on the person who can hire them.
Buy the suit wholesale and have it delivered to your door! When on line, always check the sellers reputation based on the feedback previous customers have left. I once bought a watch on the Tang website that was actually BROKEN when I received it! I was appropriately miffed and left my feedback only to find that most of the previous customers had left the identical feedback.
When people try to screw you over, they wind up screwing themselves over. Always look for the words “trusted seller or the seller’s rating, such as on ebay. If it’s below 98% positive, go to another seller with a 100% positive feedback.
Personally, I price my digital books “Wholesale for Humanity” – why? Because people just like you and me may need the extra money for food. If YOU own a business see if you can lower your prices. You just may find that you make a lot more money!
One Quick Example
There was a nail salon that opened and I went to get a manicure (fills) but the price was $40 dollars. I asked the owner if he could lower his price, as gas prices skyrocketed and food became so expensive. Well, in his arrogant tone, he replied, “No. The price is $40 dollars.” So I took a look at his salon and saw there were no customers. I then took a good look at him and said, “Maybe if you lowered your prices you would have customers in your store.” I then walked out. About two months later, I walked by that same salon, still empty without customers, and saw a big sign in the window, “Fills $20 dollars.” I laughed to myself but that bitter impression he first gave me never left. I never went into his store after that first time and no matter HOW low his prices get I would still never walk in.
If you need a product or service that is too expensive for you, ASK the person if they can work with you and lower the price. I have lowered my prices hundreds of times for people all over the world. Why? Because I care, and I always share, “It’s not just about making a dollar, it’s about making a difference.”
I hope this helped you!
