I made my first purchase of liquidation housewares from Via Trading Corp, and that went so well, that I decided to expand into clothing. I purchased my first lot of designer clothing from Link hidden: Login to view. I got some very nice pieces from Tommy Hilfiger, Jones NY, Ralph Lauren, etc. My wife pushed me into doing clothing as well so she can participate and sell somehthing she likes, which is cool. Anywho, I sell mainly on ebay and amazon. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on where else to sell designer clothing. Can you sell clothing on amazon.com? How is bonanzle or blujay or godaddy marketplace? And if anyone has any suggestions or hints about selling clothing, I would really appreciate it.

Clothing was always my favorite when I started selling on eBay. Very profitable if you get them at a nice price.

Have you ever tried selling at a local swap or flea market? 2 of my regulars are flea market booth owners and that is all they do is sell pallets of designer womens and mens clothing they get from our Macys store stock orders. I can bet money they are making a killing because they prepay for 2 pallets each delivery we get.

Heck if your only paying $4 bucks a unit and selling them for $10-$15 each your making a killing in profits.

Another good place to sell when it warms up is state fairs and local fairs.

Me and my wife made some very nice money in 2007 at the Illinois state fair. About $9K in 6 days. Unfortunately we could not get a booth last year due to time issues. We were just to busy to go there.

I am looking into the same items from the same sites. I found both liquidation.com and viatrading.com after my husband came home and told me that his friend's cousin buys pallets and sells them at flea markets. I forgot all about this site until a few days ago. I looked along time ago into dropshipping, but nothing came of that. I am hopefully going to be buying from one of those two companies soon (I like the fact they are both BBB certified). Right now that I am unemployed, I figured selling at flea markets or online auctions would be a good way to make some extra money and I hear that designer clothes, shoes, bags, and accesories have the best mark up/profit potential. I cant wait to get started, I am just waiting on having a bit more money to get going (I have $350 saved).

I actually started selling clothing we got from liquidation.com. Nice stuff for the most part but the shipping price was the biggest profit killer not to mention I lost a ton of auctions.
