Party plan handbags - for fashionistas and handbag lovers, selling handbags through party plan could provide you with a great income.

Not only do you get to have a great social life, getting out and about and out of the house, but you also get access to handbags at trade prices and with substantial discounts. Selling handbags at party plan really suits the lifestyle of people who want to earn extra money working for home and choosing their own hours. You choose when/where you work - and your products don't go out of date, like food - and they are easily transported without damaging them.

Handbags take up little room in your home and don't need a lot of maintenance and taking care of. If you sell candles at party plan you have to worry about damage, breakages and even the occasional melting. These attributes of the product mean that it's all about enjoying your new business instead of stressing over new concerns!

Choosing handbags for yourself never got easier either - as you're free to sample and ponder over a handbag you might buy for yourself, instead of feeling rushed by a sales assistant in a shop, or worried about the time the next bus leaves, or when your parking ticket expires! Take your time to enjoy your own huge stock of handbags, that you can dip into and use, or keep.

Start Your Own Handbag Party Plan Business?

Many entrants to the marketplace for hanbags have chosen to start their own party plan business - simply finding their own handbag suppliers, booking their own parties and keeping all the profits. While this is a good route, you have to factor in the additional time it'll take you to get established, to buy in all your stock and supplies and the time it takes to manage the business.

The alternative is to get started immediately with little or no cash up front, by teaming up with an existing handbag party company, giving you instant access to printed materials, sales techniques, stock and somebody else checking out suppliers and watching for trends.

Whichever route is good for you is your choice. Below are a couple of UK businesses who recruit people to sell handbags through the party plan business model.

Handbag Sources: eBay

eBay is a great place to source your handbags from if you do want to create your own business and build a reputation based on your own style and choices. All the major manufacturers and wholesalers of handbags are now represented, with their eBay shops stocked with bargains and the latest handbag must haves.

eBay these days is more of a marketplace for big business - making it the ultimate wholesale goods catalogue. Simply thumb through to find bags at great prices that you want to sell - and place your order, you could be in business in the next 3-4 days!

Choosing the Right Handbag Party Plan Company

If you want to go down the easy route of selling handbags from an established party plan company, then take some time to do some research into how well they're really doing. A lot of companies set up in the last 10 years have stopped trading. This could be for a variety of reasons, but you don't want to end up with egg on your face if you pick a company that's newly established and without any form of clue!

Typical earnings for party plan handbags with HandbagParties is £50-125 for holding a party that will take you about 2-3 hours. You receive initial training. At each party you'll have the opportunity to book future parties with the attendees, filling your diary as you go - and choosing your own hours.

Handbags start at just £9.99, making them affordable to a wide range of potential buyers.

One World is Enough - Fair Trade Handbags

One company provides you with the opportunity to sell fair trade handbags by party plan. An initial order to get you stocked up costs just over £100. An average party will turnover £250 and the starter pack should bring in £500, making you £400 from your first order.


Sell the Best Handbags - On Your Terms!

Overall, the marketplace is dominated by people selling handbags they have sourced and bought for themselves, growing their own small business the way they want, without having to rel on an outside company to make the rules and prices for them.

Whichever route you choose, I wish you the best in selling handbags at party plan, on market stalls, or even online!

Create your own path through life, start part-time and grow it into a full-time business in your own timescales - all this and by surrounding yourself by things you love, what could be better?

How Much Money Can You Make Selling Handbags?

There's no straight answer to this, how much money you make selling handbags will depend on which type of handbag you're selling, how and where you're selling it - and the hours/week you put in sourcing the best handbags for sale and marketing what you've got.

But - it can be VERY lucrative if you do it properly.

Find out how much handbags are selling for, wholesale, then make your choice and get started!
