eBay itself has a lot of items that you can buy in bulk. 5 items isn't really very large bulk though, but if you have a search on there you may still be able to find some offering discount on multiple purchases of the same item.

I doubt any of us will tell you where we get our inventory as that increases our prices usually or just creates competition. Gotta put the work in, search and research. Talk to people, make friends at swap meets, etc.

Good luck

One thing I learned over the years is cheap does not always mean smart or profitable.

Of course this depends on the niche your going in. I tend to deal with consumer electronics and I tell you, cheap stuff sell quick, but raise the most complaints, and result in the most returns, and therefore the loss isn't always worth it.

Quality products, repeat clients, above average price, healthy profits, low return rates - that's what its all about

Try Alibaba. They actually have NICHE products. Takes time to find it but you can actually make some good extra cash if you find the right vendor, warehouse, dealer, etc that has the product.

For instance, maybe cheap drones from China, maybe remote controllled cars for Christmas. Maybe LED LIGHTS or even GLOW STICKS and necklaces around 4th of July time.

I paid 100 dollars for glow sticks once and made 1000 dollars during 4th of July season at a park. I keep forgetting to look into it each year. Maybe this year Ill remember to buy a ton
