Starting a new tack shop, advice please?

I'm starting up a small online tackshop. It's going to be run through Ebay (for the used stuff) and Amazon (new stuff). I'm starting with the little stuff, halters, saddle pads, a few bits, headstalls and maybe a girth or two. Anyone else run an online tack shop? Any advice and who is your wholesaler?

For everyone, what do you want out of a small online tack shop? What items do you expect to be there? What do you usually buy online for your horses?

Please carry some not so ***** expensive draft tack!!!! It is such a pain finding good stuff to fit the Keg!

I know how you feel about the draft stuff. I have a TWH gelding who is built exactly like a draft, his head barely even fits in a draft halter! I am definitely going to stock big sizes, I know how frustrating and expensive it can be.

I will! Right now I'm working out site arrangements with yahoo (they've been great hosts for my regular site, time to check out the business side) and figuring out what everyone buys most often. Just feeling my way around things.

I'd look for cool colored saddle pads (especially dressage sized ones, they're hard to find), halters/ropes, and brushes. I think unique polo wraps might be a good idea as people seem to like those a lot.
