Decorating your home for any holiday can be a daunting task. Let's see...there's Easter and spring, Thanksgiving and autumn, and of course, Christmas! Perhaps you enjoy adding to your holiday decor each year or maybe you'd rather buy all new items to change themes. Either way, you don't have to spend a fortune. In fact, there are online sites that offer wholesale holiday decor products direct to the average consumer. This means you can save up to 50 percent off the usual retail price for many of your favorite holiday items. Let's look at how this works so you can start saving money right away.
Comparing Wholesale Websites
Look for a wholesale website that truly is offering home decor products at "wholesale" prices. Some sites claim to do this, but the prices are not much lower than retail on many products. Wholesale pricing is meant for retailers to buy and re-sell. A retailer will surely want to make more than 10 percent profit on their products! This is where some research will be required on your part. Compare pricing with several sites or with local stores in your area on the same brand products. If you notice that most of the site's products are at least 40 to 50 percent below the standard retail price, then you've probably found a winner.
Be wary of sites that advertise certain products at rock bottom prices, but then those products are out of stock. For example, let's say a company is advertising popular in-demand dolls for only $39.95 (normally $79.95), a high quality brand cookware set for just $99.95 (normally $160), and in the jewelry section, a popular tennis bracelet for only $49.95 (normally $99.95). These sound great, so you decide to visit that site.
You realize that all three items are out of stock. Could this be because so many people have rushed to order them? Probably not! It might be the old "bait and switch" trick that dishonest retailers have been using for years. Some companies advertise what seem to be ridiculous prices to lure customers in and then conveniently tell the customers that the particular product is out of stock. Then, the company will try to sell a different product that's more expensive. Car dealerships are notorious for this...and it's not uncommon on the Web. So don't be fooled when you see lots of so-called hot products that are out of "stock."
Here are some features to look for when seeking a holiday decor wholesale store online:
- Easy methods to contact customer service (by phone, e-mail, fax, etc.)
- Secure ordering
- Reasonable return/refund policy
- Net terms if ordering in bulk
- Membership fees (some do charge a monthly fee to get wholesale prices; a few don't charge a fee)
- Rush shipping options
- Dependable service and delivery
Wholesale Holiday Decor Ideas
Buying wholesale holiday decor products doesn't mean you have to be limited in your decorations. In fact, you'll probably find that wholesale stores online offer more variety than many local retailers. For example, a local retailer may offer a few items from the "Snow Buddies" winter decor collection while a wholesale website might have 20 or more items to choose from. You can build an entire theme of snow and snowmen with one website's selection! Other items you can easily buy for wholesale online for Christmas decor include ornaments for your tree, stockings, Santas, religious figurines such as angels, candles and candle holders, and garden decor items to decorate your yard for the holidays.
For Easter, consider inspirational decor or cheerful bunny decorations. During the fall season, you can base decorations on a Thanksgiving theme with turkeys, straw, colorful leaves, pumpkins and scarecrows. There are also decorations for Valentine's Day, July 4th, or any theme you wish to create in between holiday seasons.
You'll also notice that most wholesale websites don't only focus on holiday decor, but also carry many products such as picture frames, kitchen decor items, garden decor items, collectibles, gifts, clocks, garden fountains, jewelry, furniture, etc. If you're interested in re-selling the products on your own website, some companies act as a dropshipper so you can easily sell products without having to worry about stocking and shipping the items yourself.
Your home should be filled with life and color, and wholesale home decor products can help you decorate affordably.
