So yesterday I went to a couple name brand stores in the mall and I asked the managers if I could purchase their inventory that they couldn't sell, but they wouldn't let me. Too bad.

Another idea is to see if you can find out what the warehouse is thats supplying them, this is golden information.

Alot of times its hard to come by, but it is free. For someone who's very resourceful they will get this information no matter what......

The scary thing is I found some of this info by accident. I was researching a line of products, and I ended up stumbling into a virtual hive full of trade/sell informational items and inventory.

They even had computer software. Sure enough, the prices were below everyone else's. The place was hard to find, and I did find it by accident and it was more than worth it.

If you can find the suppliers behind these places, thats much better than just getting their liquidated inventory. Its a HUGE coup if you can do this several times, and then help someone else maybe on your downline do the same thing!!

Ebay Has the best deals if you you have the time to search and the money to buy large bulk -i have done the local flea market 2 weekends did about $1000 in sales (not profit) 80% of what i sold was from buying bulk lots on ebay---- the items i bought new from liquidation.com --- lingere and baby clothes -i did not sell 1 thing .....the Items i got from target i paid about $1.10 per item -cherry picked thru and pulled the better stuff out - leather jackets -retro t shirts-south park items etc .... and i put $1.99 each on the rest and have sold about 60-80 pieces with very little exposure just threw in abig plastic storage container ....also the solar lights i bought from liquidation.com i paid $15 a for a case of 12 and bought 85 cases- and have sold 2 cases on ebay at for $89.99 including s/h and one case at the flea market as i have broke them and sell at $5 each ....... the best items i have sold were dvds -shirts-caps -nfl jerseys --- all items i contacted sellers as if they sold in bulk and what kind of deal they could give me ......Jimmy HAS SAID this time and time again it takes work and you often negotiating the deal - and dont shy away from items you may only make $2-4 a items off of - i price all my dvds at $3 profit and they add up fast .
