I am wondering if any of you deal w/ wholesalers local to where you are. I am thinking about visiting a wholesale place in Atlanta so I can avoid shipping costs and since I am not too far from Atlanta. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Well buying locally if you can have that advantage is awesome. You can view product before purchase and you can negotiate better deals with a local wholsaler vs one 1,000 miles away. Id say it wouldnt hurt to check it out.

Well if you live anywhere near Atlanta, then you are in for a treat. Go visit Americasmart.
800/atl-mart. It's 3 stories of wholesale vendors, plus they have huge trade shows throughout the year.

You will need either a business licence, or a tax id. as it's not open to the general public.

But it's deifnately worth the trip..Plus most of the venders give away loads of samples if there is a trade show going on. Too, if there is a trade show going on during the time you plan to visit, you will probably want to plan for an overnight visit...

Americasmart is fantastic! If you can get to it in person without too much hassle it'll change the way you do this business, period.
