    Pinatas.com only has Pinatas, I am looking more for plates, cups, etc.
    Their links for that stuff go to Birthday Express, which I already sell for, so big leak there....

    On Flax Art..

    I see this in CJ:
    Please note: the Flax art & design Affiliate Program at Commission Junction will end January 5, 2004. We are moving the program to Performics.

    So I guess I will wait on that one.

    Maybe try to convince them to have some stats, i've tried, i have no pull. That's what i hate about some indys, i hate not being able to see how many clicks i'm getting.

    Let us know if you find anything. I, too, need to find a good merchant in this category.

    Don't know if you have them already or don't know if they even have a feed but have you tried:

    http://www.mardigrasoutlet.com/
    shindigz
    oriental trading co.
    eglow.com

    hmm that mardigrasoutlet looks interesting, looking around now, might edit this post soon

    No feed for the mardigrasoutlet just 3 text links.

    doesn't look like the mardigras one updates their site very often, when you click on the promotions link, http://www.mardigrasoutlet.com/promotions.asp they have a very very old promotion...
    None of the others offer feeds..

    Guess I will have to make my own..

    Birthday Express does have a datafeed I don't know why they don't want to give it to you. Make sure they see your new site.

    Have you checked Shindigz.com?

    Also
    http://store.yahoo.com/partysupply/
    http://store.yahoo.com/progressivegifts

    Your other alternative would be to collect other stores' party supplies sections. Like from fright catalog, buy costumes, toys r us, etc.

    SamBay,
    I did send them to my new site and showed them how lacking my party supply page was.
    I did nothing short of beg them for a feed.
    Wish I knew of a site using their feed so I could email them and say xxx.com is using a datafeed, you do have one so give it to me!

    I think bizrate does their own scraping for their feed...
    Which is what we are thinking we may have to do also.
    Thanks!

    Don't know if they have feeds, but you might look into Walter Drake, KitchenEtc or Personal Creations.
