Hi everyone,

I've decided to go with what I know and sell things pertaining to 'teachers and schools' (I'm a teacher). I'm looking for someone who can supply things like pencil cases, stationary etc, counters, die (dice), 3D shapes, calculators etc. Basically, everything that a teacher uses and wants on a day-to-day basis. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good place to look? I thought that DHgate would be the perfect place for that kind of thing, but there's actually not a great deal of that kind of thing, and what there is lacks in variety.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Shane

No doubt that is the type of merchandise perfect to source through Asia if you are buying in volume. I would suggest taking a look at the other B2B sites like alibaba, tradekey, globalsources and so on.

Just remember that even though you are not going to have the fake branding problem, these types of sites still have scammers set up there, so you still need to do your research on whoever you wish to source from.

Cheers
