    This looks very similar to the LTD Commodities site. The items are not always top of the line but they are nice. What you have to watch is the shipping price-that is where they really get the money out of you.

    abc and ltd are the same company, I've ordered from both. My moms buy a lot of our kids stuff from them for Christmas. She got my little girl a cleanup cart with a vaccuum and things like that and she still plays with it. I've been happy with everything I've gotten. Their Christmas bags are great.

    hey Lynn, Sometimes, it really depends on how much you order, I think. I think you know ahead of time how much shipping is I can't remember it has been so long. Best of luck.

    Look at the weight of the items that you order. There is a spot that gives you the shipping rates. If you order heavy things it will cost even though the item was cheaper than somewhere else, it will end up costing as much. I think they have a section that has shipping information or at least should have it before you check out with your items.
    Good luck and enjoy!

    I order from them all of the time. I've never had any complaints. Shipping can be pricey if you aren't careful.

    I used to order from them frequently and some of the items were definitely a bargain--BUT they tend to ship things separately and the shipping can add up to more than the item.

    I have had that before. They ship one item in one box then a couple days later they will ship the rest of the items in a separate box-twice the shipping cost. I have called about it and it is either the item wouldn't fit in the box or it was in stock at the same, etc.

    I agree with everyone else so far. I used to order a lot from them. But, there were several people in the office, so it was kind of fun to put an order together and then get the items. Sometimes you'd receive a box FULL of items, so we/whomever ordered spilt the shipping, sometimes you'd get a number of boxes with only one item in each. And so it went. Again, sometimes you see something you haven't seen anywhere else, just note the S&H before ordering. For small/light items it's generally a good deal or if ordering with/for other people and you can split the S&H. But, for heavy items, I'd make sure it was something I really wanted and couldn't find somewhere else. Overall I was very satisfied with what I bought from them. I do confess, I've stopped ordering though I still get a catalog, but to be strong, I just toss it before I even look at it. Another point of trying to be more frugal...

    I order from ABC all the time. I love them. The only problem I have with them is they like to ship most things separate so you get stuck with more shipping and handling. Sometimes with the prices it's worth it.
