Keystone Wholesale Markets, Inc. was formed in 2002 with the primary purpose of helping our local plain business sell their products to wholesale buyers from all over the country. Our intent was and still to focus on Lancaster County, featuring the quality products and crafts made right here in our area. We also include our friends and manufacturers from other parts of PA and more recently are reaching out to other states as well. We are always looking for manufacturers of good, quality products made in the USA. Imported products are not permitted, nor will we accept poor quality products.
We know that we cannot create the kind of quality market we want without some local expertise. So we continue to rely on our advisory board for guidance, new ideas and constructive criticism. Our advisors for the 2012-2013 term are Allen Miller (Beechdale Frames), Dan Petersheim (Pine Hill Trailer Sales), Harvey Nolt (Custom Wood Products), Levi Stoltzfus (Custom Woodworking) and Elam Esh (Country Value Woodworks). These guys not only attend our meetings offering their advice and expertise but they help out at our shows so they have hands on experience.
From 2002-2012, this 2 day event featured a variety of quality products hand-crafted by many local Amish & Mennonite artists, crafts people, and manufacturers. Our wholesale market included a Cash & Carry section with lots of quality crafts - Birdhouses, art, quilted items, pine crafts & furniture, jams, canned goods, etc. We also have an order writing section featuring furniture and lawn & garden items such as sheds, pergolas, gazebos, etc.
In 2013 we decided to split our shows into two separate shows, expanding both of them. We now have an Outdoor Living Show with Keystone Dealer Days and our Primitive & Polished - Furniture and Cash & Carry Show. Both shows are held on the same dates, same times, same location, but different buildings. The thing that makes our markets somewhat unique is that most of our manufacturers and artists are Amish, Mennonite or plain folks from Lancaster County and other surrounding areas. Buyers appreciate the fact that we have only American, quality made products and that we bring more manufacturers together...all under one roof!
Show Location: Spooky Nook FieldHouse at 2913 Spooky Nook Rd. Manheim, Pa 17545
