Dates for your diary

Events and trade shows not to be missed during 2015 covering baby goods, giftware, housewares, equestrian, garden, clothing and fashion.

Now is one of the busy times of year with all the spring gift trade shows starting with Giving and Living at Exeter, the Scottish Trade Show and of course Spring Fair.

The clothing events get underway with Moda in February at the NEC and Off Price at Olympia at the begining of March.

Our next exhibition will be The Off Price Show and will will be showing at some of the home and gift fairs later in the year.

We will again be at Off Price London in September which caters for the branded fashion and sportswear sectors.

As they become available we have started listing 2016 trade fair dates.


Welcome to The Wholesaler UK, the wholesale directory for independent retailers and traders.

If you are looking to buy wholesale, you can use this site entirely free of charge.

This directory has been compiled entirely via personal contact between its owners and the wholesalers who are listed. Because we are aimed at independent retailers, we pride ourselves on having very strict criteria about which wholesalers we include. We only list UK wholesalers who hold stock in the UK, who have a verifiable address and with whom we have been able to make telephone contact. If we have any doubts about a supplier, we will not list them.

Furthermore, we take this one step further.  We believe that we are probably the only wholesale directory that provides you with our office telephone numbers so, in the unlikely event of you having a problem with one of our advertisers, you can contact us. In the 13 years that we have been in existence, we can honestly say that, of the few problems that have been brought to our attention, most have been sorted out very quickly.

Retailer Directory

Now in our 14th year on-line The Wholesaler UK was launched in September 1999 & it has proved both useful & popular for retailers throughout the country looking for wholesalers & trade suppliers of a diverse range of products including wholesale clothing and fashions, giftware, electrical goods, novelties, furniture & furnishings, toiletries, sports goods, new age products, furniture & furnishings, cosmetics, clearance lines & ex-catalogue stock to mention a few. 

Unlike other wholesale directories of which there are many, we only link to genuine wholesale suppliers who are based and hold stock in the UK and / or Ireland, we will have spoken to them to ensure that they supply the independent retail trade and to make sure that they are who they say they are. If they cannot provide us with verifiable contact details we will not list them.
