I use Shipwreck beads because besides their large size and status as
one of the largest wholesalers in the UsA, it has been easy to
establish a working relationship with them. They keep their
employees for a long time, and it is easy to ask for the same sales
rep time after time. I use James and Tommy. They know my voice, and
I call and they have my account up on the screen immediately. I find
that by having a friendship with a rep, then if I have problems,
they get solved immediately. I like Shipwreck because I can order
just one or two of an item before I get a large order, and they will
tell me where the price breaks are. I also do business with Fire
Mountain Gems, but they have a 200 item break before the price is
wholesale, and I can not order that many items all the time.
I always check out other sources, but in 8 years, these are the two
that I keep coming back too.
