Tips On Buying Wholesale Beads From A Bead Expo

Syndicate This Article
Lots of semi-professional jewelry designers like to make their designs out of inexpensive but high quality materials, so that their pieces look top of the range but do not cost the earth. One of the best places to go if you want to see a wide range of different wholesale beads is a trade show or bead expo. These shows or expos allow bead manufacturers to display their best beads so that buyers are able to have a proper look at the beads which they may end up working with. Of course, beads shows are not the only place that you can buy wholesale beads from. If you do decide to look for supplies at a bead expo, you need to remember certain things.
Identification
Trade expos such as bead shows are often only available to registered persons. Some shows also require attendees to be part of a registered business for tax purposes. Make sure that you bring the necessary identification documents with you when you attend the event, or you may not be allowed to enter.
Payment methods
When you arrive at the expo, it is important that you have some way of paying for the wholesale beads that you choose to buy. It may be worth it to consider a few different payment methods, so that you can be covered in a number of different scenarios. If you are buying a huge number of wholesale beads (i.e. thousands of packets), the seller may take your details and arrange a promissory note for you rather than taking payment for them all at once. A deposit will normally be required. If you are only buying a small number of beads, you will normally be expected to pay for them at the time of purchase. Remember that not all sellers will accept credit cards or debit cards, so you should try to take cash if possible.
Budget
It is a good idea to plan your budget out properly before you attend a trade expo. There are lots of different things on show, and it can be tempting to go crazy and to buy everything that you like. However, if you do not have a carefully thought out shopping list and a budget that you are willing to stick to, then you could end up spending a lot more money than you want to, and this can really affect that way that your business is able to operate.
Transportation
Consider how you are going to get your beads and new supplies back home from the bead expo. Although expos are usually served by good public transport links, you should consider alternative modes of transport if you think that you may end up buying so many things that you are unable to carry them home by yourself. If you have to hire additional transport to help you to take your purchases back to your work space, then it is important that you factor this additional cost into your overall budget for the day.
About the Author: Bead expos are a great place to buy wholesale beads from, but if you do not have any expos near you, there are plenty of reputable bead sellers online.
