I am thinking about buying some mining hardware in bulk.  I've contacted suppliers to get quotes on a few items, but I'd like some further input.  What mining hardware would you most like to see in a bitcoin mining store?

Damn, bearbones, you're seeing all the same niches I am.

Still around.

The problem you'll have is that most of the video cards people are after are the ones that aren't manufactured any more.

Added PSUs, thanks for the suggestion.

The problem you'll have is that most of the video cards people are after are the ones that aren't manufactured any more.

Perhaps this is an argument for buying something cheaper and with a longer lifespan.  PSUs and accessories would probably be a good fit.

The bitcoin market?  I've got a water cooled 6990.  Max temp 50-51C with both cores running 24/7.  It's sexy.

When it comes to which GPU's to have available. The Sapphire HD5850 is by far the most effective when it comes to hashes/$.
I believe they will stop being manufactured soon though. Better stock up.
