I have been selling clothing primarily on eBay as well as flea markets. So I would get things at garage sales as well as retail stores for low cost. I am now wanting to take this business further to be able to make this a full time career. As I am doing my research I am finding it hard to find drop shippers of trendy clothing for plus size women's clothing (my niche). I am just not capable at this point to buy wholesale at a large quantity (I do have room to house though) needed to be able to start a website as I would like to work towards at this time. I really like but they do not drop-ship. So is there any drop shippers with quality product and are reliable that would be great for an ecommerce store? Is dropshipping even the way I should go? If not, how do I work towards buying enough product for wholesale. Would it be best to start dropshipping another niche to fund my true passion?

Hi Krishawn, sorry for my late reply

In regards to options in the directory, you would probably be the best guide to that as you know exactly what you're looking for. Perhaps an option to consider would be surplus suppliers. Typically, all the fashion you will find liquidated is at least 1 year old, nothing completely current. Of course there is always an exception to that rule, maybe a business had to close it doors and liquidate current stock and so on.

A lot of suppliers also offer small lots, so you may not have to buy a pallet or gaylord full. So maybe that could be an option for you.
