    Hi Everyone,

    I have been putting together my new adventure over the last few months, I want to start and online store selling via social media and a shopify store. I have done a lot of research and found that majority of the goods are sold from China. I would love to find original hand made pieces made from Australia but finding a lot of people dont want to sell through a business. Finding wholesalers is also difficult in upmarket products ie Guess, Ralph Lauren ect for kids.

    Im hoping to open in mid July and have bought a few things so far from Dhgate. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. I worked in retail for 5 years a long time ago so I dont know the ins and outs, really starting from scratch.

    I stumbled across this site and absolutely love it!!

    Hi are you looking for wholesalers? I recently joined a new online market place connecting Australian brands and retail stores, it’s called Stock My Store. I have signed up as a brand and I sell fair trade products including those for kids. If you are interested in getting unique handmade items from Australia then I would recommend having a look at this website. I think membership for retailers is about $20 a year.

    http://www.facebook.com/lildukesndivas

    The stock is building up slowly as I have started with a very limited budget. Im paying for advertising on Facebook. approx. $30.00 a week which is driving people over to me and advertising my products in facebook groups. I just don’t know how to get the views to my website from google.
