Teapot/Tea Shop

by Peg24 » Mar 13th, '10, 21:36

I hope someone can help me here.

I am opening up a small teapot shop, but I am not just carrying teapots.

I will also be carrying some teas, and I am also wanting to carry all kinds of decor and accessories that go with teapots.

My problems is finding wholesalers that carry the decor and accessories.

I can go in other tea shops and see these things, but cannot find a wholesaler on line.

I am having no problem finding teapots, just the other things.

Can anyone give me a name of a wholesaler they may use so I can locate this kind of stuff?

Thank so much!

What kind of accessories are you looking for? The tea tools such as tongs, bamboo spoons... or more fragile ones such as cups and tea pets? It's much easier to get anything wood or bamboo than fragile wares.

I am selling most ceramic and bone china teapots.

I need to purchase things like tea bag caddy's, tea pot cozzies...anything with teapots on them...etc.

You can find plenty of things like that on line to buy....just not wholesale!

It would be nice too if they were able to put my name and logo on certain items. Does anyone out there know of any great wholesalers? thanks and happy tea drinking :)
