I run a flea market booth at various flea markets in New England. I am trying to find a supplier that handles toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc. All I can seem to find are the really cheap products that will probably not bring back customers, or overpriced products.

I have seen other vendors selling products like "Basic" paper towels, scotts toilet paper, wisk laundry detergent, reynolds aluminum foil . This is the type of stuff I want to sell at other flea markets that I know do not sell these items. But I am having a problem finding a supplier. I have looked in the salehoo directory and am either finding wholesalers whose prices are too high or people I already know about that do not carry what I am looking for. Two companies I know of that do not have some of the products I am looking for are pricemaster and Kole Imports. I am also aware of liquidation.com which is an auction site, and via trading which does not have what I am looking for. So any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

If you're in or anywhere near a city of any size (say 200,000 or more population) there is almost certainly a local wholesaler who deals in this stuff -- check the yellow pages, or even go into a small chain/mom & pop store and ask.

You might also check CityWholesale.com although I am not sure they carry the specific product lines you've mentioned, they are a full-service wholesaler to the grocery industry, and might point you in the right direction. Selling at a flea market might be an issue with CW; I'd suggest just mentioning that you're opening a small store, taking over a bakrupt IGA location or something along those lines (if you don't mind a little cloak-n-dagger in your research.)

Thanks for the feedback. I looked at prideproducts they look ok, but I am nervous with the no name stuff. I will look at citywholesale.com and hope their minimums are not too bad.

Thanks again.
