It was mentioned a while ago about companies that sell items (clothing, toys, household items) inexpensively. One of the catalogs was called ABC Distributing (abcdistribuing.com). I don't recall the other company.
Here are the recent answer to this question.
Collectionsetc.com is one where most things are $14.99 but a few things may be higher. I can relate about paying the balance and then stuff has to be back-ordered or you wait days and days til they credit your account.
There's probably no way they can guarantee the item and price it is advertised, as being available with all the many many orders coming in 24/7.
Get on their email alerts lists and when they get something new advertised, order it NOW. Otherwise, I wait til you purchase a certain amt. specified and maybe get it or free shipping. Shipping is soo expensive.
Another option I have thought about - having the gift items directly shipped to the person you are getting it for, and ask them to wrap it and put under their tree. The only prob doing that, is the shipping label is included so the prices would be included too. Hmm - just a thought.

I myself have been using ABC for almost a year now and I do not own a business and I order stuff by money order. So I pay 10 days after I receive my shipment. Although I do have some things on back order on occasion I can always find something else to replace it if I don't get the first item I wanted. I love their selection and wont stop using them unless I have to.
A very satisfied customer!

I used to order from ABC, LTD and Lakeside and before they would ship COD but not anymore. They all want a credit card before processing the order. I have a problem with that becasue they never ship your complete order together at once and a lot of times your items are back ordered for months. I prefer to pay only for the items I get when I get them.
If anyone knows of any additional companies that will ship COD, please let me know.

I just tried to register at
abc and was advised that although the information page says they sell to individuals, you must supply a company name for the application to be accepted.

ABC Distributing is not just for businesses. I am not a business and have been ordering from them for many years and having them shipped right here to my home!

i work for a compnay called CTA (Christian Tools of Affirmation). it is a web and mail order business. the website is http://www.CTAinc.com . please take a minute and visit the site. i think you will be pleased with the selection and the prices. we do require that you prepay with a credit card if we are delivering to your home but if your church or school orders we will be happy to invoice your church or school once we can verify your church's or school's address. we do have a secure site for ordering online or you can call your order in. THANKS for taking the time to take a peek at our website.

A website that is run by LTD but available to the public is called www.thelakesidecollection.com This is a great site! It has all of the samethings at the same prices as ABC and LTD. I think this is what you are looking for.

Terry's Village has another catalog division called
"A Special Place". I don't know the web address
but I'm sure your web browser can find it. They have very pretty home decor/gift items for less than "Terry's Village". If anyone know of any other's I love to hear about them. Thanks.
ABC and LTD are both business catalogs, not for someone at home that wants to order from them !!

You might want to check out the COLLECTIBLES site. Nothing over $14.99.

I have ordered from ABC Distributing for several years now and have had no problems with any items I have gotten from them. Sometimes they are out of something an you do have to wait but not always. You can also order from them online. I do enjoy shopping with them an also another I use is Terrysvillage..they have some nice things they also are on site.
The other company you are talking about is named LTD Commodities.
Have a great day!
