Lancaster County Wholesalers
This topic may not be directly related to the wholesale market, but I felt the need to wrote something after what I saw last week. I live 3/4 of a mile away from where the tornade ended in Narvon, PA, and I got to experience first-hand the incredible generosity of the Amish Community. On my way to the Keystone Wholesale Shows on Wednesday, February 24th, I drove by the damage on Cambridge Road and Route 340 at 6:30 AM, and there were already hundereds of community members cleaning up the rubble. By Friday thousands of craftsmen had rebuilt two barns, framed out a flattened schoolhouse, and...
Keystone Wholesale Shows
The Keystone Wholesale Shows are this Wednesday and Thursday, and they are shaping up to be the best yet! There will be over a dozen new vendors in attendance, offering you the opportunity to connect with new wholesalers and the beautiful products they manufacture. If you can make it out I highly encourage it. I attended the show last year and vendors go all out with their displays, showcasing their products in a way you don’t get to see when you browse their websites or visit their shop. This is the premier show to meet new manufacturers, and to connect with wholesalers you currently buy...

DavCo Advertising American-made Wholesalers
At the beginning of every year there is one thing that remains constant in the Lancaster County wholesale market, the release of DavCo’s “Lancaster County Business Directory.” The business directory has been a valuable resource to the wholesale market for years, featuring hundreds of wholesale manufacturers from Lancaster County and surrounding areas. The directory isn’t just a resource for Lancaster County, DavCo has recently put the directory online to expose these businesses to buyers around the country. The Lancaster County Business Directory has been a great resource for us as we...
In 2008 after the American economy crashed, imports became an extremely attractive option to wholesale buyers and retail consumers. Consumers were willing accept a lower quality product due to the drastically lower prices imports offered. Almost 8 years later, a lot has changed in the wholesale market, and consumers are looking for the quality that goes along with American-made Products. In a recent study done by www.consumerreports.com , 8 in 10 American consumers say they would rather buy an American-made product than an imported one. This is partly to do with the economy being on the rise...
As the wholesale market for outdoor products, furniture, and crafts continues to evolve, wholesale shows and expos remain a staple in our community. When I began working in wholesale I anticipated the market, like most other markets, to be dominated by online advertising and promotion. I was surprised to find that many of the manufacturers I would be dealing with wouldn’t have their own websites, and rely almost entirely on wholesale shows for their advertising. So, after all these years, what keeps wholesale shows relevant? First and foremost, wholesale shows give buyers the opportunity to...
The Keystone Wholesale shows were formed in 2002 with the primary purpose of helping our local plain businesses sell their products to wholesale buyers from across the country. While they still have a passion for the plain communities, they now include manufacturers from all over the country. In March of 2015 the partners at Keystone decided it was time to take a step back from the shows to give them more time to spend with their grandchildren. They put the Keystone Wholesale Shows on the market, with the intent of finding a buyer with the same passion for quality, American Made products that...
