Smile What exactly is a Coop?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. If it isn't please remove.

I have been looking around at several coops on facebook. A lot of them have over 1,000 members and seem legit. I joined a few fabric, diaper, and misc coop groups.

I know that it really is a group of people getting together to purchase at wholesale. Right?

If you do purchase from a coop, do you sell the items you purchase? Say I bough 20 diapers, would it be ok to sell some of them? Or is that not what a coop is for?

I'm just confused and would like a little extra information. Thank you so much. I hope this wasn't a stupid question.

I was wondering the same thing. It's so confusing on what you can buy and all of the things you need to purchase. Like a we pay account..?

A co-op is a group of women who buy together to get the lowest prices, the items are for the buyer to save money to normally to resell for profit if that's what you mean.

Buy together to save. Resell if you wish!

Re: What exactly is a Coop?

Is there a listing of coops anywhere?

I'm not on facebook.

Re: What exactly is a Coop?

sweet fantasy fox is correct. Couple of ladies would pay me the money for me to get fabric at a wholesale price. We're I live there is a place were there just sell fabric at a wholesale price but I had to buy them in Bolts not in yards. Once I would get them I would cut the fabric in the yards they paid for.

But what ever you don't needed anymore or used you could just sell it.
