I use their store all the time, they are local here. We buy a ton of stuff from them for about every occasion. I didn’t use them for the wedding but I didnt have a need too. Do you have a specific question about them or their products?

@Jas00:  

I ordered several items from them Friday, and they have been shipped and on the way. I won’t see the items for a few weeks as I’m having them shipped to where the wedding is being held. but I ordered only the stuff I didn’t want to pack and take cross country and things I can not find cheaper elsewhere..

@Jas00:  yup, we got our bubbles from there.  It’s legit but their stuff is kind of cheap looking.  For bubbles, it didn’t really matter…

@Jas00:  OT has been around forever.  I order stuff from them every few years.  Make sure to google for coupons because they are always offering a discount and/or free shipping.

@Jas00:  I got blank flags to make my Yay flags from. The quality is what you would expect from their prices. It’s not bad, but dont expect it to be stellar.

We use them for my work.. mainly for kids crafts & party decorations.

Their shipping is pretty fast, and their packing is normally really good as well. Like all shipping, sometimes you will have a broken item or two, but their customer service is really awesome. I’ve ordered fortune cookies through them where 1/4 of the cookies were broken, and they just sent out another bag.

I haven’t really ordered any wedding stuff from them, as you do get what you pay for them with. Their prices are cheap because their items aren’t the greatest.

Is there a specific item you are interested in? I might have ordered it in the past.

@Jas00:  When I was an RA in college, we used it all the time. Stuff sometimes looked a little cheap, but it was always decent for the cost. Just double-check the size/measurements of an item before you buy because the pictures can be misleading! There were a few times when we ordered something thinking it would be full-size (like a reusable bag, for example) and it was much smaller than we expected.

Do your homework because there are some things I didnt find them to be cheaper on.. for example, bulk candy… and it wasnt all that great either.  but I do like them for craft things for children, I have ordered for things we are doing at the church.  But after I find something on theri website I ALWAYS do a price comparison, sometimes I find stuff on ebay a little cheaper.

We got a few of our wedding items there, like the pedestal to hold our sand ceremony items, our cake knife and server, our champagne flutes, and little glass jars i needed for a project. They arent perfect quality but they will do the job and they offer free engraving, so it works. the only real problem i saw with my order was that the knife was slightly curved, but its not a huge deal.

I’ve order items for events at my son’s elementary school and kids’ parties and such. They are cheap and the quality reflects that but for things that don’t need to be perfect, it’s a great option.
