I need help locating real distributors without the endless google ads appearing in the list. Is there a directory or site, where I can search for distributors by category? Does anyone know of a catalog where distributors are listed? Having a very hard time finding them, they can be anywhere in US.
Have you tried looking in your local area? Craft store owners are ordering from someone, ask which representatives they are working with – that will give you a starting point.
Also there will likely be manufacturer’s reps in your area who supply the larger stores, ask store managers who they are and how to contact them.
