Most little girls will at some point in their lives receive a jewelry making kit. This kit will have little plastic beads, enough string to make a few necklaces, and four or five clasps. For some little girls this kit will be a distraction for a few days and then they will forget it altogether, and for some girls this kit will be the start of their fascination with designing and creating their own jewelry pieces. If you are one of those little girls that was swept away by your jewelry making kit you will want to know how to save money by buying beads wholesale.
Many people think that buying beads wholesale is not an option for them because they do not have a store, or tax identification number. The truth of the matter is that you are not required to have a tax identification number, or own a retail establishment, in order to buy beads wholesale straight from the manufacturer's, or other distributors.
When you buy beads wholesale you save money because of the volume of merchandise that you are buying at one time. Wholesale prices are offered to people who buy in large quantities, and to people who will be selling the products they create from the item in question. Wholesale distributors do not charge every person the same price. They make deals with their clients dependent upon the amount of merchandise they buy at one time, and the frequency of their orders. When buying in bulk the more you buy the less you pay.
You should keep a large stock of your favorite beads, but you should also think outside of the box and buy unusual beads that you see on clearance or at reduced prices. You will never know how much you might like working with a particular type of bead until you use them. Think out of the box and buy reduced priced items that you have never tried before.
Another great reason to buy larger quantities at one time is so that you can reduce shipping cost. You are more than likely thinking that the more items you buy the more your shipping charges will be, but many companies offer free shipping when you spend a pre-determined amount of money. If you are ordering beads and spend the pre-determined amount of money you will not have to pay for the shipping. Try to wait to buy your jewelry making supplies until you are able to spend enough money to qualify for the free shipping.
You should shop online for your jewelry making supplies. Online stores have lower overhead costs, and they pass that savings along to their customers by having lower prices on their merchandise.
You should always check out the clearance section, or the on sale section of the online suppliers web pages. These suppliers will often mark the cost of the pieces down at the end of a holiday, or when they have a limited number left in their supplies. If you are a savvy shopper you can buy pieces and save them until the net holiday. Buying Halloween themed beads in November will reduce the cost you pay.
