This is not a knock against the original poster but a general comment about
buying supplies from distributors.

When dealing with a new distributor, remember they don't know you and have
certain requirements as far as first orders and/or granting credit. I am
sure that many of them have gotten burnt in the past. In granting credit one
would need to be very careful with an extremely large order.

Having dealt with Flowers for many many years, although they are not my
primary supplier, I would say that nobody does it better than them. The best
catalog in the balloon business. Excellent customer service. The best
distributor open house in the business and in fact it is so good it
challenges most conventions. Just an absolutely great company to deal with.
