I have exciting news for our clothing sellers….we have a new supplier source for Victoria’s Secret wholesale clothing, including wholesale lots of Pink apparel items! Bravo, it’s time to get excited! We get a lot of inquires about Victoria’s Secret liquidation merchandise because it holds great resale value on eBay and within clothing stores.
Searching for Victoria’s Secret Wholesale
This new supplier buys liquidation lots directly from Victoria’s Secret and then breaks down the bulk stock into smaller lots for eBay sellers, flea market vendors, and clothing discount stores.
This new wholesale supplier tops our list for updates to the Liquidators Guide for 2017. Every year, on or about this time, we review the Liquidators Guide checking for broken links and adding new suppliers that we have discovered. If you’re looking for wholesale lots of Victoria’s Secret clothing, you’re going to love the new supplier we just added to our Guide!
With this new addition to the Liquidators Guide, I want to review a few ways shelf pull and overstock clothing can be resold. I’m not going to mention the obvious- hint, hint eBay because I want to try and offer ideas that may not have crossed your mind. I’m all about being creative when it comes to reselling liquidation merchandise. C’mon, you should know this about me by now! OK, here we go, in no particular order:
Event Sales – I’m going to write another three post series on Event Sales, but here is the gist: To create a sense of frenzy or excitement, Event Sales are one or two day events where the seller sets up shop in a parking lot, hotel conference room, or other rented location. An Event sale can be held within a store as well, but sellers must heavily advertise the event as a narrow opportunity, meaning, liquidation stock is only available on advertised days, for a specific block of time. The marketing idea is simple… get customers excited and this excitement will causes a great sense of urgency to make a purchase. Ye ‘ole “Snooze and you lose” tactic. It works. It works very well.
Craigslist – I don’t know about you, but when I spend time on Craigslist I see a lot of sellers advertising clothing by the piece. Since there is no cost to list items on Craigslist, this is a great way sell overstock, returned, and shelf pull clothing items.
Home Parties – This is a really cool idea that someone could really develop. We all know about candle and cookware parties, heck I’ve even heard of naughty toy parties where a bunch of people get together in someones home to order products out of a catalog. Food, fun, and retail all mix together really well! How about inviting all your friends and their friends over to check out all of the clothing you’ve just ordered?
Trunk Sales– Trunk sales? Yeah, being a west coast guy, this seems a bit weird, but I’ve been told in some of the larger east coast cities, trunk sales are very popular. Sounds a bit shady, but who am I to judge! I have a friend in Baltimore who told me that vendors sell all kinds of stuff on the street. Now stop…I’m not advocating joining the ranks of sellers pushing stolen (hot) items, but rather vendors making a honest side income peddling (that’s a better word) merchandise where people congregate. I’ve looked into this, and it’s true…some cities actually require sellers to acquire a peddlers license before they can set up shop on a street corner. If this idea seems viable to you, do your homework checking out the legalities of this type of venture.
