Crystal Candleholders to share (round 2)
This was posted by 2011bride a while back:
Hi girls, I know this is a longshot, but I thought I'd try....
I wanted to get these candleholders and they seem to be sold out of at Michael's or Homegoods, TJMaxx, Marshalls etc.
I need about 75 of them still. What I decided to do was put my old product developement and merchandising skills to use and contact a supplier overseas. So far I've got a good price for them, but only problem is that I need to do the minimum of 500 to put them in production to get the price they quoted (the price for each is so obscenely low per holder). I still wouldn't have the large sum of money to get them in production all by myself, nor do I need more than 100, so my next thought was "how about if I were to share the cost" with other brides who have been looking for this same holder? If I can get 4 other brides to go in on it with me, we could get them made and shipped here (US only) from overseas within 2 months. If you don't need that many, there are lots of girls who would want to buy them later after the wedding right? They still come out pretty cheap if you mark them down half price to sell after your wedding!
Let me know if you are interested, PM me for the pricing and details. The sample is exactly like the pic above which went for around 9.95 EACH votive cup at Z Gallerie or 4.49 each at Michael's. I could send you the quote sheet that the vendor gave me with the sample pic of what will go into production if you do want to go in on it. I need 4 other girls at least to make it happen.
Just putting my feelers out, hopefully some will be interested! Thanks for reading my long post!
We are starting another round. We need 500 candleholders in order for us to get the price of $2 each. I am ordering 150 so we need 350 more.
We are also ordering matching napkin rings and the taller candleholders. We need to order 200 each to get the ideal prices. (Already fulfilled the napkin rings but will take more orders to help bring the price of each down. Need 100 more of the taller candleholders.)
PM me for pricing and if you have questions if you are interested. When we get to at least 500, we will have production started. Me, jennifer25, and 2011bride (as our guide) will be working on this.
Hope we can get the numbers we need!
