I have been nothing but impressed with the new ownership at betterbee. I am a regular customer in person and via the web. When I need something yesterday I can just call and verify inventory and pick it up. They are only a 2 hours drive from me. When I have sometime before I need things I give them a call and its shipped FedEx and I usually get it in 2-3 days.
I love Mann Lake but sometimes it takes them 10 days befoire I recieve my order. Also, Mann Lakes HUGE price increase on wax foundation really bothers me. Its seems like they keep going higher and high. I can get 25lb bulk foundation shipped to me cheaper than Mann Lakes cost with free shipping.
I make most of my equipment but I buy frames and foundation and the odd "new' item or two.
I am finding myself ordering from Betterbee more and more. They are friendly and polite. They have patients to answer all the newbies questions and deal with a sideliner like me who just want products at a good price and someone to say thank you!
