Hi All -
My dad and I thought I’d tackle this fun knife block that we saw online:
It’s basically a homemade version of one sold at Bed Bath and Beyond that uses plastic skewers. So my question is: does anyone have any idea how we can go about getting 10 inch or larger bamboo skewers wholesale? I’m sure we’ll find some eventually at a local 99 cent store, but even with this we’ll need like 20 bags of 100 just to make one. If my dad wants to make a bunch, it probably behooves us to find a wholesaler. The problem is that the wholesalers I find online charge so much for shipping that it’s not even remotely worth it.
Anyone have any ideas how to track down LOCAL wholesale distributors for a community (such as Seattle, where we live?). Meaning the people that supply the local 99 cent stores?
thanks for any ideas!
