You can also search for liquidations and small bulk as those can be quite profitable. Small items can be purchased wholesale at very reasonable prices but dont go after the boy toys like xbox 360 or ps3 as they are not a high profit item right now.
want to find good liquidation places...but they all seem to be in the US or UK, have limited stuff available to Australia, and when they do have something you can export, they have something like $300 shipping minimum costs plus $15 for for 'documentation' and when you add it all up, it'd be cheaper to just board the next plane to the US and sell from there for a few months..... :shock:
Seriously, though, does anyone know of any good liquidation companies in Australia? Nothing ever comes up in search engines (including Sensis.com.au). I never find anything in the yellow pages either. I've been pouring over Gray's Online and have got a couple of small bargains, but overall there seems to be very little. Does anyone know of any good local ones? Our stores have to be disposing of the stuff somewhere....otherwise discount retail outlets like the NQR grocery stores wouldn't exist.
