Hot market idea: Wholesale party supplies

There’s always someone, somewhere, celebrating something, and party supplies wholesale make for a solid business opportunity for your online store. A quick check online will bring up a torrent of suppliers and retailers, confirming the demand for these items.

So what does it take to get a party started?

Here are some of the general items needed for parties and special occasions.

•    Invitations
•    Welcome decorations
•    Room decorations
•    Costumes and accessories
•    Games and prizes
•    Tableware
•    Serving supplies
•    Goodie bags

It doesn’t seem like much, but keep in mind that many people don’t just throw a party. Themed events require an infinite variety.

Pros and Cons

Just like any other business, selling party supplies wholesale has its pluses and minuses. On the minus side, as you will see for yourself by doing a search on Google, or by scanning listings on eBay, everyone seems to be thinking the same thing, and so the field is quite crowded. Markups and profits also tend to be modest.

However, items come at very low prices, are not perishable, and are fast-moving, especially balloons and room decorations. If you can book a steady stream of customers, you’ll build a nice revenue stream from this business. And as we mentioned earlier, the partying never stops! Even in such a crowded market, conversion rates on eBay are at around 35 percent. There is potential for this kind of business.

Where to Buy Party Supplies Wholesale


Some online retailers also sell supplies wholesale, especially if you’re buying in bulk. There is an immense variety available, and prices are generally attractive. Bulkpartysupplies.com and noveltiesgalore.com are among the top results on Google.

Let’s get the party started, shall we?

Think about the parties you have gone to. The weddings, etc too. What do you remember about them? The food? The decor? No...its the kind of time you had! Not to throw water on this parade....but the decorations and food, etc just sets the mood and theme....its the Music and entertainment that your guests truly remember! Reply
