    More reason to travel around the world and discover new places. That way you can just fast travel around to the major cities and sell your goods if the current vendor is out of $$$

    I think their gold reset after 2 days, so just wait 48h.

    they will replenish their gold, also you need to skill up mercantile/speech so you can invest in some stores, this allows you to increase those vendors gold limit and at some point you can get all vendors a 1k gold upgrade. They want it to be somewhat of a challenge and not have 1mil gold 2hrs into the game, this game was made to play for 100+ hrs and then some, so just a lil patience and you will have tons of money as you progress.

    Lol I knew they meant for it to be a challenge, I was just caught off guard when the vendors actually ran out of money.

    I've noticed that a powerful mage that spec's in destruction does not have much need for your"gold" as you call it - just magika!

    gold seems to replenish in 25 hours saves a little time. Also it seems the thieves guild may have the best 3 vendors.

    You can save your game, completely close the game, and then load it back up. This will reset both the vendors money and items.

    As some have mentioned before, simply load up on vendor trash, then travel from city to city (of which you've already explored) and sell your stuff. Going from place to place should allow you to get rid of everything you have to sell. Should the vendors "run out" of cash, rest for a day or so, then their coffers should be replenished.

    There is a perk, called master merchant I believe...gives 1000 extra gold to all merchants. Try working toward that.
