    Hi Folks. With sooo many online stores selling 1000’s products from China etc and competitive sellers on Amazon etc I am looking for that niche product in the UK. When you google this you get the usual blogs which are again usually connected to the usual suppliers AliExpress etc. I wondered how other online entrepreneurs have got around this to source products from the UK that are in demand. I am researching lots of sites but they all usually signpost back to the usual Asia cheap tat etc. I guess it’s research research until it’s found. Would be interested to read the views from other people.

    I sell a niche product. Only one person (maybe two) people in the UK make it. For a short time only one other person is selling it online. Found it while I was being dragged round a Craft Fair style market.
    Sometimes it's just luck. You just come across something totally out of the blue. I think I would prefer to look round markets and shows than sit for fruitless hours looking online.

    I was thinking along those lines because there are some good handicrafts made by people which I am trying to source. But thanks you are correct sounds like you are ok.
