One of the most daunting things about starting a show is finding out where to buy everything. Below is a list of vendors with whom I have had a good experience, a link to their website, and the items I have purchased from them.
|Vendor Name||Items Purchased||Notes|
|Light-O-Rama||Control Hardware, RGB Products||Light-O-Rama is not the least expensive option for controlling Christmas lights, but they make an excellent product and stand by it. Because so many people use it, finding support is easy, whether by contacting them or participating in their extensive user forums.|
|Holiday Light Express||LED Light Strings, Wire, Plugs||Holiday Light Express sells quality commercial-grade full-wave rectified LED Christmas light strings in many colors, sizes, and lengths. They offer a warranty on their product and their customer service is phenomenal. Be sure to buy your lights during their annual pre-sale, which typically occurs during the winter.|
|Creative Displays||Xenon Strobes||My orders from Creative Displays have always arrived on time, and they stand behind the quality of the products they sell. One of my batches of strobes had a lot of failures, and they made it right immediately.|
|Monoprice||Cable Ties, Cat-6 Ethernet Cables||Monoprice is a great place to get good products for less money. For the Cable Ties, I purchased product number 5755. The Cat-6 ethernet cables are used to connect the computer to the controllers.|
|D. Lawless Hardware||Stainless Steel Cup Hooks||It was very difficult to find stainless steel cup hooks in a bulk quantity. The price was great, they came in bags of 100, and shipping was fast. I ordered item number H21-H561E-25100SS.|
