As I love a good bargain, I was browsing the other day through online stores and boutiques, looking for cheap designer jeans, something on sale, and I came across Merchandize Liquidators
, a worldwide distributor for overstock merchandise and not only, offering wholesale prices. These guys supply wholesale designer clothing from high end department stores closeouts, so the apparel and the shoes also are all first quality.
They sell jeans, sweaters, tops, pants, dresses, skirts, sweat pants and jackets from brands like Liz Claiborne, Ralph Lauren, BCBG, Guess and many others. What got my attention, though, was the jeans lot that includes brands like Diesel, True Religion, Seven for All Mankind, Paper Denim, G star, Wrangler, Lee, Citizens, Ernest Sewn, Rock & Republic and also big designer names such as DKNY and Calvin Klein. I did put my eyes on a pair of stretch denim shorts in a lovely indigo wash from DKNY but, unfortunately for me, they offer only the wholesale price for it.

It costs $799 for 100 pieces, so I'm only hoping that an online retailer reads this and likes them too. Anyway, the Merchandize Liquidators offer a good start for small boutiques with a minimum sample order of 100 pieces, discounted prices for bigger orders and export documentation handling for customers abroad. They work largely with eBay sellers, offering them an exclusive deal: all overstock of designer clothing from a very upscale department store for 50% of the wholesale cost.
That's very fine by me but if I don't want to buy wholesale? A large banner directs me to the Merchandize Liquidators store which, besides being quite meager, you will still have to buy at least five units of your purchase item. I found some cute tops there and a lovely pair of gladiator high heels from Guess which, sadly, sold out.

And, on the not so good side, these guys are losing many points at appearance and communication. I'm talking about their website which is a total mess: there's little information, few poorly made pictures, with clothes folded in a bandbox and not even displayed on a mannequin. I guess that this website is just a general overview and all orders and details settling are best made by phone.
