I'm thinking of starting one but I'm wondering what types of products I should sell. I'm going to specialize in silicone and plastic molds. What other products do you think are "big" sellers?

Thanks for the suggestions. I was actually considering selling some FDA approved dusts for a reasonable price.

Let me know when its up and running, I'd love to see it!!
Other than colors, and molds... i think the other thing I'm always looking for is cutters, either cookie cutters or fondant flower cutters....

And also make sure, that you are able to ship overseas, I have a big problem with finding suppliers, who can do that. Need Paypal, reasonable shipping costs etc

I agree with Ursula - we have real trouble finding supplies in Europe as well. Wiltons tips are hard to find the full range. Also fondant cutters like petunia. magnolia and such are hard to come by. And YES to luster dust and, sparkles and colours - I always end up with some new every time I shop supplies.

Thanks for the suggestions. That was my main target, low shipping because shipping nowadays are outrageous.

If anyone have anyone suggestion, please keep them coming.

I agree on the all the sparkles & dusts! The one store close to me charges a fortune for the little tiny container.
Also the clear flavorings, vanilla, butter, almond, etc...
ummmm i'm sure i'll think of more I can keep adding! LOL

Rylan are you going to do sugar molds? I know many of us have searched for sugar mold and sugar tools at decent prices. (pumps, isomalt, molds, the make your own mold silicone, mats, gloves, etc). Maybe you could think on the lines of airbrushes and tools also. I know I have seen many on Ebay at decent prices but I get a little worried about buying from suppliers on ebay that I don't know and I just don't want to pay the price at Michaels.

Thanks Terry, I'd keep the flavorings in mind.

Patty, yes I am thinking of sugar molds as well. The one I wanted to focus on was lace, medallion, pendant, etc. molds for gumpaste because they are usually expensive. As for the airbrush equipment and such, I think I will consider that in the future but I will definitely go for the tools for sure. Thanks for the suggestions.
