Windy Valley Woodworks Summerside Poly Bar and Chairs
Windy Valley Woodworks is always working at developing new outdoor furniture lines, and they have hit the nail on the head with their Summerside Poly bar. Available in color combinations hand picked by their designers, the Summerside Bar is perfect as a poolside bar, or as an addition to your customer’s backyard getaway.

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.

Lambright Country Chimes Wind Chimes
Lambright Country Chimes manufactures beautiful wind chimes that always draw the attention of customers. I first met the owner, Orley, at the All American Furniture Expo where our booths were next to each other. I watched as he received multiple compliments about the quality of his chimes, and the beautiful melodies they brought to the expo. The quality of construction and attention to detail Lambright puts into their chimes brings a soft, soothing sound, rather than a sharp sounding chime found from many of the competitors chimes. Lambright also offers new dealer discounts. If you spend $1,...
American-made Furniture, Outdoor Products, Gifts and Crafts 2016
It's hard to believe it's almost been a year since I began working on All American Wholesalers in February, 2015! During this time of year it is important to reflect on what you are thankful for, and I am certainly thankful for being given the opportunity to be a part of this web site. It has been a pleasure working with every manufacturer, and I am proud to be working on a site so dedicated to promoting American-made products. We are very excited about the strides we've made on the site this year, and you can expect big things from us in 2016. We will be attending 3 trade shows in late...
2015 has been another interesting year in the gift/craft wholesale market, seeing E-Commerce continue to grow in popularity. Despite the amount of customers utilizing the Internet to do their shopping continuing to increase, brick and mortar stores are continuing to succeed. This can in part be attributed to one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be sold effectively online. I am fortunate enough to share an office with Lancaster County’s Wholesale Mall, and was able to gain some insight into this trend. Their manager Craig Sheaffer notes, “many manufacturers who feature one-of-a-kind items are doing...
Over the past 10 years innovations in the shed industry have been minimal. The change from wood to vinyl, and other small innovations regarding insulation, siding, and roofing are among a few. Over the course of 2015, however, consumers have taken the storage shed in an interesting new direction. What many are dubbing “Shedquarters,” ( Pro.Com Blog ), adding a room to the backyard is the biggest trend of 2015. Rather than struggle with the hassle and expense of a home addition, homeowners are opting to turn a storage shed into a spare room right in their backyard. Be it a spare bedroom, an...
2015 has been an interesting year in furniture design. I am given the pleasure of updating manufacturer profile pages with new products, and attending trade shows where manufacturers showcase their newest pieces. Being relatively new to the wholesale market, it has been very interesting getting the opportunity to follow furniture trends over the year,(and noticing how out of touch I am with my apartment furniture). As I was browsing the booths at the 2015 All American Furniture Expo with a friend, I noticed a new stain that had a presence in multiple manufacturer booths. The name of the stain...
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...
