Well I had no idea where to post it so I'll just post it here :) . I am thinking about starting my own e-business, a magic store and wondering where I could get magic items in bulk for wholesale. I know it is an odd question, but If I work hard, my store could be up in a couple of years.

Kard16,
Not to rain on your parade but there are an awful lot of on-line magic stores already! Unless you plan to offer something completely different in the way of product or service you could end up just competing on price in a limited market. Don't get me wrong, this is good for all of us buyers in the short term, but not such a good business proposition for you. If you are really keen try to find out what isn't available on-line that there is a market for and look at supplying that.
Cheers
KAZ :bunny:

Though I agree with kaznzak, on the failure of e-business magic (myself included in the failed lot) I can suggest two companies Rabbit in the Hat Ranch (sells at or below wholesale to anyone) and Imperial Magic (sell wholesale to companies) If you would like contact info for either please PM or email me.

I did start and run a sucessful mail order company that specialized in one-of-a-kind and unique items. My last year with the company I cleared more than I make in two years at the 9 to 5 job I'm at now. So is the price of fatherhood.

Well what I am gonna try to offer is pricematching, a online video of all (or most of) the tricks, a very nice web design, and friendly costumer service.
