    dear sir,
    Thank you for the latest information on this article i found it just great.
    My business is taking in second hand furniture and selling some in our auctions which occur once a month. So i want to open a new furniture section with low cost items on a trial bases.
    I want to purchase approximately 1500 dollars worth of assorted items on my first order.
    Is this possible? If so can you help?
    I can of course forward you some photos of approximately what i am looking for. I was in YIWU CITY MARKET twice in 2012 but found the purchase amounts too large. I really hope you can help me on this one.
    Kind Regards.

    Very informative video, thank you very much!

    Links to the rest of the series don’t work though (video not found I guess, since I don’t read Chinese). Where can we see the other videos?
