I, myself, visit the International Trade Association. I want to know where my chosen product to sell originates. This website has a WEALTH of information. Including lists showing the top ten countries for producing your product of choice. Also, on this site there is a made-in-usa section to find suppliers. I can't give away all my secrets; but, visit this site and you will be amazed. Also, visit associations for your chosen niche. The following is a full list of association from the trade site I recommended....

When searching online, it is important to know that basically, you are searching "databases" meaning, searching google-you are searching google's database. Search Yahoo, you are searching Yahoo's database and so on. Meta-search engines may be helpful for what you are searching as a meta-search engine will search multiple databases at the same time. Examples are mamma.com or dogpile.com. Type in full list of meta-search engines and you will have a ton.
It is helpful to know what you are looking for...a supplier for drop shipping or do you want to buy your inventory. Are you looking for a wholesaler etc. Because when you are searching, it is also helpful to know the lingo surrounding the supplier. For example, a wholesaler is also termed a "jobber" a "distributor" etc. If you open up google earth then in the search, type, for example: if I am selling shoes: type in manufacturer/wholesaler women's shoes, then the area of interest....for example.... Manufacturer women's shoes, california then press search and voila! You have a full list of every manufacturer that offers women's shoes in California. This works for any country around the world. Google Earth will bring up a nice neat list of Manufacturers', address, phone numbers, and websites. Like magic!
