Finding a Wholesale Supplier – Starting a Home Based Internet Business Selling Wholesale Clothes

Are you looking to start your own clothing sales business, but want to be able to control your own hours and work from home? Perhaps starting your own wholesale clothing business online is the right option for you. While this can provide the flexibility and convenience that you may desire, it is by no means an easy “get rich quick” answer to financial stability.

Getting your business started requires plenty of work and research on your part. In the beginning, you may need to get out and attend trade shows, look at local warehouses to check the quality of certain brands and styles, or even do some information interviews with personal shoppers or store buyers.

You will also need to take advantage of the same technology that you plan to use to sell your clothing; the internet. You can use various online options to get market research on what people are buying and to also search for vendors to supply your business. You will definitely need to investigate the wholesale options, especially when considering an online supplier. The internet is full of vendors looking to take advantage of inexperienced buyers. Many will ship poor quality or wrong clothing while others are simply scams meant to steal credit and identity information.

Some tips to protect you when looking for wholesale clothing suppliers include checking out the supplier’s website. Look for actual contact information and make sure it is a real, physical address and phone number. Ask for samples of their products before actually making a purchase. Look for reviews of the vendor, and check with the Better Business Bureau to validate the company’s legitimacy.

One way to help your search is to take advantage of online wholesale directories, such as SaleHoo. SaleHoo can offer search engines to help narrow your search for a wholesaler, and will also allow you to search for vendors who will drop ship the order for you to the customer. Many directories also offer reviews of their member companies, as well as forums for their customers to share experiences. Finally, you can use the directory to find multiple vendors and offer a wider range of clothing and accessories to your customers.

The biggest advantage to this type of business is that you can do it all from the comfort of your own home without having to maintain a large inventory of clothing. If you plan accordingly, do the research and find the right wholesale partner, the chances of having a successful business are quite good.

Review Of The Best Fashion Brands Of 2010

This review focuses on giving adequate information about the best fashion brands 2011. The best and most successful brands in the clothing and shopping niche have been D&G, Armani and Ed Hardy. There are definitely other brands that could also fall into this category, however, the 3 represented in this review definitely had a decent impact on how our teenagers and younger generation dresses today. Here are the reviews of each individual brand.

D&G (Dolce and Gabbana)

Dolce and Gabbana has been one of the leading manufactures and top providers in the clothing industry. Typical clothes and products that are produced from D&G are t shirts, jeans, belts, socks, caps, pullover, shoes, perfumes, watches, sun glasses, eye glasses, fan accessories, body lotions etc. The provider has been producing the highest quality products in all of these categories and niches since the last couple of years. In fact, D&G has become so popular that already teenagers at the age of 14 up simply love their products. We know that D&G is a great provider in quality and style, so the price must be remarkable high right? The prices for jeans, sun glasses and shoes are astronomic, and can hardly be afforded by many men and women. Unfortunately, this is why many fake products hit the market in the last decade and provided fake clothes and accessories from D&G.

Ed Hardy

Ed Hardy has been a sensation since the last couple of years. Through the production of high quality clothing like t shirts, jeans and caps Ed Hardy definitely stood out of the crowd. The America based company reached record numbers in sales in 2009 and 2010, and nobody sees this trend to slow down soon. It is similar to D&G one of the most professional clothing manufactures with a relatively high price standard. Caps can cost from around $70 up to $400 each. This is why only few people can actually afford original Ed Hardy clothes.

Armani

Armani is another top Italian cloth manufacturer. The strength of Armani lies in producing high quality jeans and belts. However, Armani also managed to bring perfumes and t shirts to the market that made it difficult for their competitors to fight back. The price is like for D&G and Ed Hardy accessories relatively high and not easily affordable for the average American. Armani accomplished to produce the best perfumes for both men and women in 2010.
This review was dedicated to the best fashion brands of 2010.

Bamboopink Review – Why Bamboopink Parties Don’t Work

A Quick History of BambooPink

Bamboopink is a jewelry company based out of Irvine, California. The designer, “JudeFrances,” has created a new line that has promised increased sales for their independent representatives. With all of the media attention around the new line, it might be time to take a second look at some of the issues with the opportunity.

Why Marketing is So Tough

Marketing is a tricky industry, for many reasons. What they teach in business schools is that, “half of your marketing works, you’ll just never be sure exactly which half.” Tactics and techniques are always revised and changed, and it’s truly a difficult thing to tell what’s working for your business, and what’s not.

Marketing is such a unique mix of media outlets, content, networking, and persistence. If you stay with one technique long enough, you’ll be able to truly evaluate whether it’s working for you or not. And one of the huge issues with network marketing is that many people don’t stick with one thing long enough to determine the result of their efforts.

Home Parties with Bamboopink

Bamboopink provides a unique opportunity for evaluating techniques. Like many MLM’s, especially in the clothing and accessory industry, they encourage their representatives to host home parties to show off their jewelry.

A big reason for this is because people do like to see wearable items in person. It’s tough to decide whether something would look good or not based on internet pictures. Being present, and feeling a piece of a collection, is important for buyers.

But that’s rapidly changing with the internet, and it’s changing more each year. This is evidenced by higher and higher online sales of clothing and accessories, as more boutiques start their own sites and add shopping components. So why wouldn’t this work with Bamboopink?

The Issues with Home Parties

The Bamboopink model has been tested by thousands. And the truth is that a lot of people fail in their marketing efforts, because they first focus on home parties, instead of evaluating a real marketing method and trying something new. They know what’s familiar to them, and they stick with it. After enough frustration, many quit.

But there are other ways to market Bamboopink, and much of it can be learned and applied with relative ease. It requires learning new techniques, testing them, and finding out what works best for your growing Bamboopink business. All of the information is available to network marketers, it just takes a little patience and discipline to dive in and start the process.

Spot Fake Resources and Sites

Going on a shopping spree is often fun. Splurging on items that you’ve desired the most may give you a feeling of contentment, but what happens when you realize that you’ve been cheated? The brand-name item that you purchased turned out to be a fake. Here are a few pointers that will help you distinguish between the real thing and a fake.

Spotting a Fake Diamond

Fake diamonds are less expensive. Cheaper materials are used and their settings are sloppy. However, sometimes a shop owner may sell you a fake one at the price of a real diamond. There are several ways to know a real from a fake diamond.

  1. If you are able to read small print, like a newspaper’s, through the diamond, the stone is a cubic zirconia or other fake. However, if you cannot read the type whatsoever, that means light is getting dispersed and that your stone is probably a real diamond.
  2. Take the stone and examine it under a microscope. If there are scratches present, the stone is a cubic zirconia or other fake. Cubic zirconia is soft and is likely to have scratches on it. As a diamond is the hardest natural substance on earth, you will never find a scuff or a scratch on it, unless it is scratched by another diamond.
  3. Take the stone and breathe on it to see if it becomes foggy. If the stone takes a few seconds to clear up, it is a fake. Real diamonds disperse heat immediately and do not fog up.
  4. Take a real diamond and the stone in question and make a comparison. Put them close to each other. If the suspected fake has a grayish or greenish blue hue, it is a fake: likely moissanite. Real diamonds are nearly totally colorless.

Spotting Fake Fragrances

Follow the steps mentioned below to spot fake fragrances.

  1. Take a photograph of the real fragrance from the manufacturer’s website. Now compare this to the bottle that you are thinking of purchasing. Fake fragrances are not very precise in their matching. If it is a fake, you will notice the difference in the shape of the bottle, the cap, the sprayer inner tube, or even the sprayer head.
  2. Take a note of the liquid and its consistency. Fake fragrances have too much oil in them.
  3. Notice any difference in coloring.
  4. Sometimes shop-owners try to sell expired perfumes at a discounted rate. These fragrances are probably losing their essence. So, stay sharp and ask for fresh stock.

Spotting a Fake Memory Card

With the growing need to store data, memory cards are aplenty in the market. Here are a few tips to help you spot the fakes:

  1. When purchasing a memory card from a store that sells cheaper cards, compare a card that was bought from a reputable store with the one you are about to purchase.
  2. A counterfeit memory card either has a serial number missing or the number on the packaging is different from that on the memory card.
  3. Unlike a genuine memory card that has notches, grooves and insets around its edges, a fake one does not have these.
  4. There is an absence of holograms in the fake memory cards.
  5. Counterfeit memory cards are not safely packaged.
  6. To avoid lawsuits, the bogus memory cards misspell brand names, as well as other relevant information.

Spotting a Fake ID

Owing to the advances in technology, nowadays it is a difficult task to identify a genuine ID from a fake one. Here are a few ways to distinguish a fake ID:

  1. Observe the body language of the person presenting the ID. If he or she shows signs of nervousness, is restless and fidgets, it is possible that he or she is giving you a fake ID. Be cautious of anyone who looks too young.
  2. Compare the person to the photograph in the ID. Observe if there are changes in hairstyles and color. Notice the facial features. Take note of the height and weight information.
  3. If there is an indication of tampering, be sure it is a fake. A red eye in the photograph, uneven surfaces, unclear letters and numbers are clues for a fake ID. Usually information on height, weight, birth date and photograph are tampered with. After the laminate has been put back in place, the state seal and numbers may not coincide. The edges around the picture may be rough.
  4. Look for the expiration date. If the ID has expired, it may imply that the ID is borrowed. Similarly, if the ID is marked as a duplicate, it shows that the original ID holder may have requested for a duplicate to be made for someone else to use.
  5. Ensure that you have an updated book that state that rules and regulations of an ID. Now compare the ID with these rules.
  6. If you are wary about the ID presented to you, ask for a second or third form of ID.
  7. To make sure that the person’s ID is genuine, ask questions that are not usually thought of when changes are made in the ID. For instance, ask a person’s high school graduation year, zodiac sign, or what the middle initial stands for. If you notice a hesitation or prolonged wait for a response, the ID is probably a fake.

Spotting a Fake Check

Making payments with checks is still very popular, despite the other ways of payment, like credit and debit cards, direct deposit or electronic checks. Scammers are always making counterfeit checks and stealing account numbers. Here are few ways to identify a fake check:

  1. A genuine check must be immediately accepted by a bank.
  2. Take note that the top left-hand side has the name and address of the person or company that has issued that check to you. Right across from this information is the check number.
  3. The date should be under the check number, while the “Pay to the Order of” should be right across to the left.
  4. Below the “Pay to the Order of” is the Legal Line. This is where the amount of the check is written in words. Straight across, the amount is filled in, in numbers. Both these numbers much match so that the check is accepted. The Legal Line must always be written. If it is not, it indicates that the check is a fake.
  5. Information about the bank should be mentioned at the bottom of the check. It comprises the check number, routing number and account number.
  6. Beside the bank information, the signature of the person who has issued the check to you must be present.
  7. Some checks have a perforated or squiggly line that runs on the left-hand side of the check, while others have the word “original” mentioned on the check. When held up to the light, a watermark will be visible.
  8. The check can be considered a fake if the information on the check looks fuzzy, or the check looks like it has been washed, or the ink seems to be running out.
  9. If at any point you feel that the check is counterfeit, do not accept it.
  10. Visit a local bank to confirm your instincts.
  11. Usually fake checks have large amounts written on them and the account mentioned on them is at a distant location.
  12. It is recommended that you know the person issuing you the check. If you are dealing with someone unknown, ensure that you have their contact information from a telephone directory, or a people-finder website.

Spotting Fake Designer Clothing

People love to dress in brand-name clothing and accessories. They often get cheated as they are unable to distinguish between a genuine and a fake item. Here are a few tips to help:

  1. Visit an authentic store to see the brand-name item. Notice the quality of the product, its patterns and information. Fake items are made with cheap and inferior materials, are not stitched well and lack the fine details of a genuine piece. Labels may also be missing.
  2. All fakes are usually sold at a lower cost as compared to the genuine designer clothing.
  3. Prior to your purchasing the item, browse around on websites to confirm the normal prices of designer wear.
  4. When purchasing from a suspected fake-brand website, ensure to check the contact details and terms and conditions. It is mandatory for all websites to provide their contact information.

Don’t Let the Clothing Shops Win in the Sales – Buy With Knowledge and Don’t Waste Your Money

One of the only benefits of the current economic situation is that shops are thrusting exceptional discounts at us from all sides, their intention being to tempt us to part with our hard earned cash at every opportunity. But how do we guarantee that any clothes we buy in the sales are not only good long-term investments but also that they are the right style and colour to make us look our best?

Before hitting the shops, the first thing you should do is review your clothes and accessories and make a list of exactly what you need to buy to fill any gaps in your wardrobe. Secondly, set yourself a budget and try not to go over this, you could even budget per item if you felt this was useful. If you know where you will be shopping, then making a list of shops you definitely want to visit should ensure that you make the best use of your shopping time.

Knowing which colours suit you best, the ones that give your face and skin an instant lift is vital since, when you know which your most flattering colours are, you will never again buy an item that finds itself sitting in the wardrobe unworn. The result of wearing your ideal colours is that you will not only be more confident but you will look younger and healthier too!

Next you should establish which body shape you are. You do not want to make the mistake of buying tight pencil skirts which make your thighs look bigger if you are a pear shape. Equally, wide-legged trousers which emphasise your lack of curves would be wrong if you have a rectangular body shape. Wearing the correctly styled clothes will immediately give you more confidence in your appearance.

When you do find an item you would consider buying you must ask yourself if it is really the correct item for you. Do you really need it or is the bargain dress you are holding in your hand very similar to the one you currently have hanging in your wardrobe?

These are all useful points to consider when shopping but if you are still struggling to decide which are the best buys for you, then why not invest in a full style and colour consultation with an image consultant. You will learn skills that should last you for a lifetime’s shopping for just the cost of two or three of those items in your wardrobe that you have bought and never worn.

Singer Treadle Sewing Machines: Singer Sphinx Review

When Singer treadle sewing machines were introduced to the public, they became an instant hit. For the first time ever, women were able to use a sewing machine in the comfort of their own home. These vintage machines are still being used today. Some people collect Singer treadle sewing machines, including the popular Singer Sphinx. This machine was created around 1891. Newer models were released in 1905.

The Singer Sphinx sewing machine doesn’t use electricity. It is operated by a large rubber belt that extends from the large foot pedal to the balance wheel. This old model is table mounted and has sturdy metal construction. The fact that it will only do a straight stitch could be a disadvantage for some sewers. However, it does the best and neatest straight stitch you could ask for. You can even sew through denim and other heavy fabrics easily. Singer Sphinx features adjustable stitch length and width, drop-in bobbin, and adjustable presser foot pressure.

Many people have been collecting Singer Sphinx machines for some years. Their main interest has been in the rarity of model, collectability, value, and visual condition. In the past few years increasingly more sewers were interested in putting these old machines into regular service and using them on a constant basis. Singer Sphinx enjoys tremendous popularity among collectors and sewers alike due to its beautiful “sphinx” pattern. Most treadle machines available on the market could be fully operational with a new belt and oiling.

Singer Sphinx machines are over 90 years old and still working, which indicates their increased durability and solid construction. These popular machines have never faded away completely. Many models are still used in small professional work rooms, as well as in private sewing rooms. Some designers only use treadle and crank operated sewing machines to create earth friendly clothing and accessories. The Singer Sphinx has been a reliable, dependable sewing machine from the very beginning. These are fascinating old machines that can handle a wide range of fabrics.

If you are lucky enough to get your hands on an original manual, you will learn how to wind the bobbin and thread the needle. Accomplishing these tasks without the guidance of a manual can be difficult for beginners. Despite its simplicity, the Singer Sphinx represents a real challenge for new sewers. Once you understand how this machine works, you will be able to use it regularly.
