How To Buy For Higher Profits

Cómo Comprar Para Obtener Más Ganancias

by Corryn Henry

TODAY’S CONSUMER is looking for a bargain, making it vital for flea market vendors to find the best deals when buying merchandise. Here are some resources to help you buy lower and sell even higher.

Trade shows At a trade show you can meet a potential supplier and then see, feel and buy the merchandise you like almost immediately. Another plus is that exhibitors are looking to make sales at a show, so most often there will be special discounts given. When meeting face-to-face with potential suppliers you can work out logistics and even do some negotiating to ask them if they would be willing to ship smaller quantities or offer a discount on a larger order.

April 2014

EL CONSUMIDOR actual busca ofertas, lo que hace que sea vital para los vendedores del mercado de pulgas poder encontrar las mejores ofertas al comprar mercadería. A continuación, encontrará algunos recursos que lo ayudarán a comprar a menor precio y vender aún a mayor precio.

Exposiciones comerciales

Trade magazines are inexpensive and highly beneficial way for flea market

En una exposición comercial, puede conocer a posibles proveedores y, posteriormente, ver, probar y comprar la mercadería que le gusta casi de inmediato. Otra ventaja es que los expositores buscan vender en las exposiciones, por lo que a menudo se darán descuentos especiales. Al conocer en persona a los posibles proveedores, puede elaborar la logística y hasta negociar si estarían dispuestos a enviarle cantidades más

Online, you can find top products, suppliers and the digital version of the magazine by visiting www.fleamarketzone.com.

Closeout & liquidation deals Closeout and liquidation merchandise offer vendors the opportunity to buy and sell goods at low prices to make large profits.

demand for the products that you plan to purchase? It is important to look around and assess buyer demand. See what your competition is selling and at what price points. By observing and also talking to customers it can reveal a product void at your marketplace that you could fill. One way to find a supplier of closeouts and liquidations is through a directory of wholesale suppliers on the Internet. To get started, visit www.wholesalecentral.com.

Quantity discounts A quantity discount is offered by sellers to entice buyers into purchasing more. In turn, they reduce the price, which allows businesses to stock up on more product. This can be beneficial if you find yourself placing several orders to keep a product stocked. For instance, if your hot sellers are sunglasses and you place multiple orders throughout the season, buy a pallet ahead of time to cut additional shipping costs and add more profit to your pocket. However, as important as it is to shop efficiently it is just as important for you to access your ability to carry inventory to avoid having excess product that sits. continued on page 16

Ofertas por cierre y liquidación La mercadería de cierres y liquidaciones ofrece a los vendedores la oportunidad de comprar y vender bienes a precios bajos para lograr ganancias mayores. Al comprar este tipo de mercadería, es importante hacerse algunas preguntas. Primero, ¿dónde puede almacenar los artículos que compra a granel? Además, ¿existe una demanda para los productos que planea comprar? Es importante investigar y asesorarse sobre la demanda de compra. Vea lo que su competencia vende y los rangos de precios. Observar a los clientes y conversar con ellos puede revelar el vacío que existe en su mercado en cuanto a un producto, el cual usted podría suplir. Una forma de encontrar a un proveedor de cierres y liquidaciones es a través de un directorio de proveedores mayoristas en Internet. Para comenzar, visite www.wholesalecentral.com.

Esto puede ser beneficioso si tiene que hacer varios pedidos para mantenerse abastecido de productos. Por ejemplo, si su producto de mayor venta son los lentes de sol y realiza varios pedidos durante la temporada, compre con anticipación para reducir los costos de envío y obtener más ganancias para su bolsillo. Sin embargo, comprar eficientemente es tan importante como llevar un inventario para evitar tener un exceso de productos sin venderse.

China Sourcing Fair in Miami June 19-21 GLOBAL SOURCES’ China Sourcing Fair is coming to the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, FL June 19-21. Now in its fourth year, the import/ export fair provides flea market vendors the opportunity to source directly from a wide array of quality manufacturers from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The five product pavilions are Electronics, Gifts & Premiums, Home Products, Fashion Accessories, and Garments & Textiles.

Deals on new products Last year, the Miami fair drew around 800 manufacturers and suppliers, as well as more than 6,000 attendees. Bill Janeri, general manager of Global Sources, forecasts 7,500 show visitors at the upcoming event. “Flea market vendors are looking for new sources of quality products and that next hot product that will ignite sales at their booths,” says Janeri. “China Sourcing

Fair provides an opportunity for them to find deals on new products, and to meet and form relationships with potential suppliers. Many manufacturers are looking to expand into other markets, and are willing to start with smaller orders and grow with businesses. The flea market and import/export worlds are coming together. This is due in part to a global economy as well as to product availability and technology. Online sourcing has opened the door to a lot of suppliers that flea market vendors did not have access to before.”

Free “How to Source” sessions The China Sourcing Fair is also offering free educational sessions on “How to Source from Asia.” The first session provides tips on how to evaluate manufacturers at the show. Another session, presented by Mike Bellamy,

Product preferences survey To better understand buyers’ sourcing behavior and their product preferences, Global Sources conducts an annual survey of professional buyers of consumer products in North America and Latin America. Of the 562 respondents to its February 2014 survey, more than half (55 percent) have been in business for over 10 years. “This indicates that these show visitors are well-established buyers and importers of consumer products for the Latin American market,” Janeri notes. The survey also revealed that 91 percent of respondents are buying more or plan to buy more products from Asia this year. Nearly three quarters (74 percent) of respondents are small companies with less than 50 employees. More than half of respondents (53 percent) have been importing products from Asia for more than five years. Show registration is free for qualified buyers. To enter the show, all visitors must present a business card with their name and company name printed on it. No one under 18 years old will be admitted at any time during the event. ■

will offer strategies vendors can use to work with manufacturers in Asia on product quality control, logistics and supplier payments. Bellamy has been sourcing products from Asia for 17 years, and represents several large buying corporations. He is able to evaluate the pros and cons of different suppliers, and knows what to look for to get the best deals. There also will be a session on how to buy online. The conference schedule is available on the China Sourcing Fair website under the “Visitor Services” link.

Lucky Draw giveaway Again this year, the China Sourcing Fair is hosting a Lucky Draw giveaway. “We will be giving away eight iPads during the threeday show,” Janeri shares. “We recognize that B2B trade shows can be exhausting, so we are including this Lucky Draw to add a little more fun.”

it. The alternative was to rent a costly storage unit, but that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convenient when you need to access something quickly. We already had several storage bins taking up valuable floor space, many of which were damaged from being stacked, and utilizing overhead space seemed a logical solution.â&#x20AC;?

From case to turnkey opportunities Wholesale prices begin with a minimum order of one case of 28 tracks. Hyperlily is also offering vendors a turnkey business opportunity with initial investment ranging from $1,495 to $12,495. In addition to product, vendors receive a display that demonstrates how tracks are used, brochures and other materials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The top package includes a concession-style trailer designed to fit a 10 by 10 foot tradeshow booth,â&#x20AC;? Found explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can open on one, two or three sides, and displays the

tracks and how they mount to the ceiling. Another thing that is unique about our program is the opportunity for residual income. Upper level retailers receive a special code for their customers to use when purchasing additional product online. Their customers will receive an incentive like free shipping, and vendorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accounts will be credited towards future product purchases.â&#x20AC;? Retailers are invited to visit BinTRACKS at the ASDLV show, March 16-19, at booth SU3244. During the show, business packages will be offered at special rates. â&#x2013;

High Quality Turkish Rugs, Runners and Doormats easily sell them for $29 and still make 100 percent profit,” Sonmez explains. “Some of our flea market vendors are now purchasing from us and selling to other flea market vendors with a satisfying profit margin. We keep our profit margins very low, so in turn our vendors can make a favorable profit. Their customers get a very good item at a very affordable price, so everyone is happy.” Rugnur & Co. / Maxy Home continues to expand, and is preparing to launch a furniture line. “Our new furniture line will be perfectly suitable to easily sell at flea markets and discount stores. We are very excited about this upcoming line,” Sonmez adds.

RUGNUR & Co. / Maxy Home is one of largest U.S. importers of area rugs and doormats from Turkey. “Turkish rugs are well known for their high quality materials, design, and labor,” says Ibrahim Sonmez, president and CEO. Products include mid level area rugs in a variety of sizes as well as shapes such as rectangular, round and oval. The company also sells runners and rubber-backed doormats. The firm’s most popular sellers at flea markets are 5 by 7 foot rectangular and 5 foot round carpets. “As an example, some of our 5 by 7 foot area rugs wholesale for $15 and can retail for $39, but vendors can

Rugnur / Maxy Home cooperates with its vendorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; budgets, and, so as not to limit their purchasing power, there is no minimum order. The firm has created displays for its runners and area rugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a satisfying order, we give our displays as a gift to our vendors. They will sell more with these displays,â&#x20AC;? Sonmez points out. To learn more about Rugnur / Maxy Home, visit the company at ASDLV, March 16-19, at booth SU2812. â&#x2013;

Customer service and sales strategies Sonmez began selling rugs to flea markets and discount stores in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to buy area rugs from a local wholesaler and deliver them to my customers in a blue Chevy van. Every time I made deliveries, I tried to help my customers by sharing my sales strategies and ideas with them. Through this, I formed strong partnerships with my vendors.â&#x20AC;? In a short time, Rugnur has grown his line and expanded his sales force, but vendors still remember Sonmezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands on customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowadays, when my sales reps visit a customer, they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, you are the guys with the blue van!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Today, Rugnur / Maxy Home serves vendors with two distribution centers. The firm has a 100,000 square foot warehouse, and $5 million in inventory with 95 percent of goods in stock.

Simoniz Launches Vendor Program with Top Selling Products SIMONIZ, THE most widely known brand of car care products, has been serving the industry for 100 years. To date, its products have been top sellers at big box stores, auto stores, and car washes, and the firm is now expanding into the flea market arena.

Detail Car Care Kit “We are launching a program just for flea market, auto and trade show, swap meet, festival and fair type vendors. We are offering an extensive line of Simoniz products as well as introducing the Simoniz Detail Car Care Kit, an item that is not available in any other market,” states Stephen Firestone, VP. The car care kit contains six items, all conveniently stored in a handy backpack.

The kit includes: • Instant Shine Hi-Speed Spray Polish: a spray that utilizes a mechanized trigger providing a quick and effective shine to any vehicle with no waxy residue. • Brake Dust Buster Wheel Cleaner: a spray gel that clings to wheels and washes off with water, removing tough built-up brake dust from wheels and rims. • Soapmitt: a soft mitt with built-in soap. • Perma Scents: a four-ounce spray pen air freshener. continued on page 38

Necklace Saver Keeps Jewelry Tangle Free THE NECKLACE Saver from Armenicus Life is a patentpending product designed to keep necklaces tangle free, at home or on the go. Made from lightweight organza, the product is a sleeve that is open on both ends. Holding one end of the sleeve, the user slips an unclasped necklace inside, grasps the other end of the necklace at the bottom of the sleeve, brings the two ends together and clasps the necklace closed, and ties the ends of the Necklace Saver. The product comes in attractive, hangtag packaging, which displays product images and detailed instructions, making it an easy impulse buy at flea markets. The Necklace Saver is available in three widths to accommodate a variety of necklace styles. The one-inch design is for fine chains with small pendants, and is available in aqua. The two-inch Necklace Saver accommodates somewhat larger necklaces, and is orchid in color. The

three-inch version holds chunky necklaces and comes in light pink. Each of the widths is available in two lengths: one for necklaces up to 22 inches long, and another for 30 inches in length. Wholesale is $3.60 and retails for $5.95 to $10.95.

Perfect in drawers, jewelry boxes & suitcases Anna Kazanchyan, MD, invented the product. “We all know how frustrating it is to deal with tangled necklaces. My many attempts at keeping my necklaces tangle free while at home or traveling, in pouches and boxes, or by wrapping each necklace in a paper towel, were not successful. My necklaces either got hopelessly tangled into knots, or my jewelry boxes filled half the suitcase. That is why I had to solve the challenge of tangled necklaces.” The product can be used by itself in a drawer, purse or suitcase, in a jewelry box or on a jewelry tree. It allows necklaces to retain their circular shape, and is transparent so there is no need to unwrap each one to find the piece to wear. People love the Necklace Saver, and Kazanchyan gets many repeat orders. “Vendors say it is a genius product.” Since its launch, the Necklace Saver has received rave reviews in media including Beauty Style Watch, Independent Miami, The Daily Buzz, Cleveland, OH, NBC affiliate WKYC-TV, and the Examiner. Armenicus Life donates ten percent of proceeds to orphanages around the world. The company is also establishing a manufacturing facility in one of the disadvantaged areas of Armenia, to provide women with jobs to support their families. ■

How to Supplement Sales with Liquidation Merchandise by Nathania Stambouli

WITH THE rapid rise of bargain shopping and the proliferation of ecommerce and coupon sites like Amazon and Groupon Goods, consumers’ shopping behavior has changed dramatically over the past several years. Shoppers are now increasingly focused on getting the best possible deals on the highest quality name brand items. Flea market vendors are now faced with the new challenge of attracting extreme value driven shoppers, which can present a struggle when sourcing inventory. The wholesale marketplace is full of new master case non-branded items that are in decreasing demand, leaving room for a different type of product to take center stage. With liquidation merchandise, vendors are able to supplement their regular assortment of goods with high demand branded items, offering their customers real bargains while increasing their margins significantly.

Brand names for the budget conscious Merchants worldwide are capitalizing on liquidation goods by sourcing them at a small percentage of their original retail value, and selling them to bargain hunting consumers at a significant discount over their original price. It is not uncommon to find wholesale lots of high-end branded shoes like Steve Madden, Nine West and Coach, available on the liquidation market for only 12 to 15 percent of their original retail price. Vendors are then able to offer their customers at least a 50 percent discount off the original cost of the shoes, while doubling, if not tripling their investment. Savvy vendors also purchase liquidated branded cosmetics or other impulse items that they place in bargain bins, supplementing their regular inventory with products that help increase the amount of each customer’s purchase. These items also make great marketing tools when used as promotional

giveaways, or gifts with purchase to thank customers for their business.

More varied product mix The nature of liquidation products makes them particularly appropriate for smaller vendors who cater to a wide array of customers. When sourcing inventory from manufacturers or purchasing regular wholesale deals, minimum quantities can be large, often leaving smaller vendors stuck with too many units of the same item. Liquidations offer a different kind of experience, providing vendors with a wider mix of products within a single wholesale purchase. For instance, a liquidation lot of assorted designer clothing may contain a variety that includes outerwear, jeans, tops and a percentage of fashion accessories. Where a regular wholesale purchase of non-liquidation goods might be comprised of 500 units of the same type of item, liquidation lots give vendors access to fewer units of any one item, allowing them to avoid being stuck with excess inventory. This also increases the urgency for consumers to purchase, since there is no guarantee that a particular item will be in offered in the future. Liquidation products are available through liquidation specialists throughout the country, and are usually purchased on an auction basis or at a flat price, depending on the liquidator. To get started with liquidation products and test how they will contribute to the success of your business, look for a supplier that offers low to no minimum orders, great customer service, a wide variety of items, and a consistent supply so you can keep them coming if they do well. ■ Nathania Stambouli is the marketing manager at Via Trading Corp, a Los Angeles based wholesale liquidator. The firm specializes in supplying vendors of all types and sizes with cost-effective liquidated merchandise from the nation’s leading department stores and specialty retailers. In addition to providing a reliable stream of profitable inventory, Via Trading offers a wide array of resources to assist customers in growing their businesses.

2. Go big, bold and creative. When choosing designs for maximum attention from your audience, take into account:

Colors. Bright, contrasting colors are great for catching the eye but a more minimal design can also appeal to a loyal audience.

Fonts. Ensure your font is clear and can be easily read from a distance. Experiment with bold and italic effects to help draw shoppers to particular information.

Brand Consistency. Your designs must fit seamlessly with the rest of your branding, to help your business maintain and improve its recognition.

Visibility. Consider where your signs will be placed and how surrounding colors or lights could affect their visibility. You might want to choose illuminated signs or install additional lighting if your booth permits.

Western Express Adds to Multiple Categories WESTERN EXPRESS Inc. is a wholesale distributor of western style clothing and accessories for men, women and children. Operating for more than 30 years, the company carries an extensive line, including shirts, hats and hat accessories, belts and belt buckles, jewelry, leather jackets, bolo ties, holsters and gun belts, and much more. Many of its products are manufactured in the U.S.

Western Express aims to provide retailers with the most up-to-date, popular western fashions, and, as a result, business is booming. “Sales are up 15 percent this year,” shares Dan Mottsman, owner. As the company heads into its busy season, it is well stocked with several new products in many categories, he adds. The company recently expanded its already vast line of hats, and now offers more faux felt, wool felt and straw hats. New styles and colors, in both traditional western and fashion western styles, are available to suit both genders and all ages. The wholesale price for hats starts around $4.50, and the median price is $8 to $10. Retail price is at least double wholesale. Western Express’s western shirts continue to be popular with consumers, and the Stars & Stripes with pearlized snaps is a perennial favorite, Mottsman points out, and the company’s solid retro shirts with smiley pockets are very strong sellers among women. Newly introduced designs include an eagle and a horse. The beginning wholesale price for western shirts is around $16. “We have also expanded our printed wear, including tee shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and ladies’ tank tops.” The company has added to its line of

more than 200 bolo ties, as well. One new arrival that is expected to take off is the Arrowhead bolo tie, which is made in the USA. Composed of nickel-plated lead-free pewter, the tie has finely detailed Victorian-style bolo tips.

“We have a lot of new beaded earrings and necklaces,” Mottsman continues. Hand-painted Peruvian beaded earrings, for example, are comprised of fancy, hypoallergenic wirework and Czech glass. “We also sell earrings and pendants in little boxes shaped like cowboy hats, and they do very well.” In addition, the company has a selection of western style sunglasses with trimmings such as a horsehead, a gold star, a cowgirl and a flower. Western Express has expanded its holster line to include holster belts, which wholesale for around $11. New smartphone cases will be introduced later this year. With a product line this broad, it is critical that Western Express’s website be well organized. “We have a fully functional ecommerce website, with detailed, colorful product images,” according to Mottsman. “It is organized by category and has a search button so it is easy for retailers to navigate.” The minimum order is $150.00 for orders within the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and $250.00 for orders to any other country. “We have many satisfied customers who have been with us since our inception,” Mottsman adds. “We are proud to be very customer service oriented.” ■

Business Tips For Vendors

Oregon Flea Market Open Year-Round

Bazaar-On-Hudson, in Cold Spring, NY, is a flea-style, indoor market that will be held Sundays, April 6 to July 27, from 10:30 to 4:30. Located at 103 Main Street, the venue is just 70 minutes from Grand Central terminal by train. Bazaar-OnHudson is operated by two local Cold Spring brick and mortar businesspersons, Nathalie Jonas and Sam Lutzer. The duo is vetting makers and artisans in the Hudson Valley and New York City for home, beauty, jewelry, vintage, spirits and other products. The goal is to find a mix of 50 percent established businesses and 50 percent emerging artists who do not currently have brick and mortars, and make it a cooperative forum for 13 Sundays across 15 weeks. Booths rent for $45 per day for a 6 by 5 foot space, and the application fee is $25. For more information, visit www.bazaaronhudson.com. ■

You can prosper as a vendor if you follow these three tips:

Picc-A-Dilly Flea Market, in Eugene, OR is open every other Sunday year round, except for July and August, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Operating since 1970, the indoor market occupies three connecting buildings in the Lane County Fairgrounds. The market has 312 tables available that rent for $25 each. Upcoming market dates for 2014 are April 13; May 4 and 18; June 1 and 15; September 14 and 28; October 11 and 12; November 9, 22 and 23; and December 7 and 21. The entrance fee for shoppers is $7.50 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., and $1.50 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Peggy and Fred Ward, and Suzanne and Bruce Jackson, who have been friends more than 30 years, own the Picc-A-Dilly.

1. Know your customers Strive to get to a point where upon seeing a person approaching your stand you can predict what they are going to ask for or know what to suggest to them.

2. Be friendly Even if you do not think someone is going to buy, strike up a casual conversation and connect with them. They may end up buying something or come back and make a purchase at another time.

3. Maintain cash flow Spend money to make money. If you hire help, make sure you are using the time it frees up for you to create more products or meet with more customers so you are attracting more income into your business. ■

El dúo selecciona fabricantes y artesanos en el valle Hudson y la ciudad de Nueva York para productos para el hogar y de belleza, joyas, antigüedades, licores y otros.

Consejos Comerciales Para Vendedores Usted puede prosperar como vendedor si sigue estos tres consejos:

1. Conozca a sus clientes Logre que, al ver a una persona llegar a su puesto, pueda predecir qué es lo que está buscando y qué sugerirle.

2. Sea amigable Aunque crea que alguien no va a comprar, inicie una conversación casual y establezca una conexión con ellos. Podrían terminar comprando algo o regresar y hacer una compra en otro momento.

3. Mantenga el flujo de efectivo Gaste dinero para hacer dinero. Si contrata ayudantes, asegúrese de usar el tiempo que esto le proporciona para crear más productos o reunirse con más clientes para atraer más ingresos a su negocio. ■
