Anyone use Oriental Trading?

I ordered umbrellas from them for my studen'ts dance recital (Singin in the Rain) and now I get catalogs from them in the mail.  I just got a wedding one.  How's the quality of their merchandise?  Their prices seem pretty good.

    I ordered paper parasols from them for the wedding. The prices were very good. The quality isn't outstanding, but for the price you can't beat it.

    I was looking at the personalized napkins and even the placecard holders (although I really want to use pumpkins if our guest list isn't too high).  I worry that the napkins are just flimsy though.  I look around at the knot store too.  They have good sales sometimes but I just worry about buying stuff online/catalog.  I like to physically see/feel things.

    TK has great sales. I ordered stuff when they had a big sale, the price was def great and the quality I think is better on TK then OT. I think OT is fine when it's stuff for kids, but for a wedding you may want to be careful.

    I can't speak for OT but TK has nice napkins, I ordered some when they were on sale, and then realized they are always on sale, but you should order them from TK. They are good quality.

    I got our cake cutter & knife from OT and both are really nice.  I've also ordered stuff from them for teaching supplies.  I didn't get much stuff from them for the wedding, though, b/c I shopped around online and found cheaper prices.

    good to know...I'll do some more looking around.  I'm not looking to buy anything right now just good to know the best places to look.  Thanks everyone :)  I think I'm going to do napkins from TK.  I like their totes too for my bms.

    I love Oriental Trading, *L* I always get special pencils for the kids at school from them, and stickers.  My mom bought bags for out out-of-town welcome bags from them and also got little personalized mints.  They were cute.  Quality is commensurate with the price but definitely a VERY good deal for what you pay!

    I used them a lot of for cheerleading.  You are getting what you pay for, I think.
