My name is Alison and I live in Melbourne too.
I have a 6mth daughter and am wanting to set up a small business on ebay for extra cash.
I am looking to sell childrens toys, party supplies & art supplies (such as crayons, pencils, etc.)
I have come across 4gsm and have seen a number of things I would buy. At the moment I don't have all the cash to buy the minimum $350US and they don't tell you the shipping cost until the very end. So I have sent them an email with a number of questions - waiting reply.
I have found AllAboardToys which have great products but the shipping costs are so high that very little profit can be made.
It is so hard finding 'real' wholesalers.
Electronics seem to the thing that sells really well on Ebay - ipods, mobile phones. I have also looked into this but need a bigger outlay to start with.
I am very happy to know that I am not the only one finding it difficult to find ideas & wholesalers.
