Wholesale Novelties

There are probably more possibilities in the wholesale novelties field than in any other wholesale/retail undertaking. Why? Simply because there are so many truly "novel" ideas and products swirling around the globe and finding their way into the hands of the buyer. By some counts there are 4,000 or 5,000 distinct items in the warehouses of wholesale novelties merchants and many of them can be purchased in large quantities for pennies on the dollar!

Of course, many suppliers of wholesale novelties work only with retail stores and other established resellers who pay state sales tax and other business fees for their retail site. But these wholesale novelties merchants also work closely with the public, in some cases selling novelty items at discount prices to the individual buyer. While the price may not be as low as if you purchased a small truckload of key chains, pens or whoopee cushions, you can still benefit by buying from a wholesale novelties supplier. Many of these vendors will tell you they are first and foremost a wholesale business. However, they will allow individuals to buy sample or single units on specific items. Tip: Make sure you know what the supplier's minimum order is. In many cases it's only $50.

One of the keys to understanding this business is knowing that with a lot of wholesale novelties merchants, their inventory comes through the liquidation process. What does this mean? Quite simply, the thousands of items you see in an online list or in a printed catalog are novelties that are being swept off the shelves or from the warehouse because the company wants to move them and make room for new product. This can mean that once you buy a particular item (or 100 of the item) and sell them, there may be no more to offer to your customers. This is good information to have. In fact, seeing the item in a wholesale novelties list does not mean it will be available for shipping this afternoon.

Two groups that benefit from the huge wholesale novelties market are non-profit organizations and corporations. In the case of non-profits, wholesale novelties are perfect for church and school fundraisers, church fairs and picnics, civic organizations and clubs. If your company needs several hundred novelty items, such as drinking cups, giveaway pens or some unique gag gift, these suppliers will be happy to oblige.

Many wholesale novelties merchants have experienced staff members who will work closely with non-profit organizations and corporations to make sure that the items are right for the project and that if the event is a fundraiser, the selling processing is handled smoothly and accurately. Many schools, churches and clubs can make three or four times their original investment offering some of these fun items!

If you are interested in small toys, inexpensive prizes, sports-related items, disguise glasses, hand buzzers, or gag gifts of every description, and have a fundraising event or corporate activity on the calendar, contact one of the many wholesale novelties suppliers. If you are a retail shop or a regular at the flea market/swap meet sites, these merchants can help you make a tidy profit in wholesale novelties.
