There is a need in the wholesale industry for each of these three groups - the independent retailer, the independent manufacturer and the independent service provider to reach each other efficiently,'' said MyWares co-founder Sandra Began.

Two veteran national gift market participants - one a vendor and one a buyer - have launched MyWares.com, (http://www.mywares.com) a new concept in on-line wholesale product showcasing and buying.
"We were frustrated with the fact Trade shows are sporadic and the Web is so large. We needed one spot for Wholesale Buyers and Sellers to connect all year long,'' said Stephanie Cartwright, MyWares.com co-founder. "Now vendors like me can up-load product images and wholesale catalogs and know that visitors to their pages are the target market they need to reach all year long."
MyWares.com benefits the independent retailer and the wholesale vendor by filling a void in the wholesale marketplace. Independent, women-owned businesses - selling everything from apparel to green goods -- are able to easily and affordably showcase their products to a wide range of wholesale buyers. Retailers can search out a wide selection of quality and unique goods quickly, easily and at zero cost.
How MyWares.com works:
Women-owned companies with high-quality gift, fashion, and home decor products apply to become featured sellers on MyWares.com. Free or paid premium membership is available for as little as $16 a month.
Independent retailers are given free access to product listings, wholesale catalogs, media kits and contact information. Unlike gift shows and merchandise markets, MyWares.com is open seven days a week, 24-hours a day. MyWares receives no commissions.
MyWares.com also is adding a free Business Resource registry for service providers such as sales reps, public relations professionals, and artists whose work can compliment and assist both retailers and vendors.
"There is a need in the wholesale industry for each of these three groups - the independent retailer, the independent manufacturer and the independent service provider to reach each other efficiently,'' said MyWares co-founder Sandra Began. "MyWares.com does that.''
MyWares.com currently showcases more than 400 vendors in 33 categories, selling everything from hand-made jewelry to organic skincare to pet novelties in a large variety of price points. MyWares.com is a boon for the enormous number of small and independent women business owners looking for a chance to be seen in the marketplace.
Successful vendors praise MyWares: "There are no other sites like MyWares that are simple to work with, stylish and user friendly,'' said Fiona Richards of Cartolina Cards (http://www.cartolinacards.com) "MyWares is the only site that I am involved with on the Web apart from our own site. The quality of goods sold on MyWares is very high and I am proud to be showcased amongst such products."
