Designer goods may probably be the hardest products to acquire. Companies with top brand names want to protect their brand value, so they are very careful about who they distribute to. They just donâ€™t want everyone selling their stuff on eBay at crazy prices, because if that happens, then the market value for their products will go down. All the marketing effort theyâ€™ve put into establishing a premium, highly sought-after brand will be lost. If you look for a wholesaler, youâ€™ll find it very difficult to find one selling authentic goods. That's why we always say that if you are going after a brand-name product, it's always safest to deal with the company directly. You're guaranteed that the products are authentic, plus purchasing directly from the manufacturer means that you are cutting out the middleman. We did not and can not guarantee though that by going straight to the manufacturer, you're assured that you'll be offered wholesale because as we know, some companies just don't sell outside their set of authorized dealers (in which case, you might want to re-evaluate your product choice), but in any event that they do, what have you got to lose by contacting them directly?
