As I understand the original question, it involves who has the right to buy
from me as a vendor at a wholesale gift or merchandise show. I personally
feel that my objective at these affairs is to sell my products to anyone
who can order in an acceptable minimum amount and pay the bill. It seems to
me that if they are a buyer for a large department store, or a small club of
buyers is immaterial as long as they can provide the legally required
(state sales tax number in our case). We could, of course,
raise our minimums to guarantee that only “legitimate buyers” could afford
it, but this would price us out of the reach of smaller “legitimate buyers”.
We prefer to sell.
