A fun reseller purchase is linens and textiles. These items can sometimes be overlooked but one thing you should remember, linens and textiles can get quite pricey. Some will fall under designer and luxury items and are in high demand. What better way to bring items that are high end at a fraction of the price to your online store! There are many other options that can be included in this category. Linens and textiles can be:
· Pillow shams and covers
· Kitchen and dining tablecloths and napkins
· Curtains and drapes
There are many other items that you can include with this list. In my sourcing experience, most items that are high end have been cleaned and well maintained so why not offer these for resell?
Before you think, “used bedding?!”, if we can resell clothes, why not luxury linens and other textiles?
Many high end retail stores as well as specialty stores have a large following of clients that prefer designer labels and brand name linens, and they sell exceptionally well. Reselling pre-owned is an affordable way to own these yourself or sell to your client base that may not have these items accessible in their area at affordable prices. Aside from affordability, there is also accessibility. Designers update throughout the seasons and items may get discontinued and hard to find. A client may only need to replace a single piece or add an additional pillow sham and instead of having to purchase an entire new set, you can offer replacement pieces. It’s a win/win for both of you! Next time you are out sourcing, take a look at the bedding and linen department. You may already be familiar with clothing designer labels that sell well. Look for these same designers in bedding. Just as you took the time to learn the feel of clothing textures, you’ll be amazed the difference in feel for high thread count and well constructed material used in bedding and kitchen décor. Step out of your comfort zone and research a new seller category. You may be surprised and have a new field open up. Wishing you luck and good fortune!
