I buy from Alderfer lumber regularly. Great people to deal with. In addition Ralph Stuck lumber company is not far from there. I would suggest in either case calling before leaving to be sure they have what you want in stock and that it is not buried in a storage shed.

I forgot about the guy in Hughville , maple leaf hardwoods http://www.curlymaple.com/ . Lewis lumber in Picture rocks also sells figured maple http://www.lewislp.com/ . Then there is also Lou Irion in wellsboro http://www.irionlumber.com/ . Give me a little more time and I could probably give you a dozen other places within a 50 mi radius of williamsport.
