We had to remove the custom wood switch plates and fan blades from our web site on 1-18-17. When we can locate a new US based manufacturer willing to make custom plates, we will add them back to our new website rewrite which will be taking place in 2017.
If any wood switch plate producers would like to contact us, we are open to learning about what you have. We like the idea of many many wood choices, custom cutout configuration, unfinished or finished options, and any other extras.
We are NOT interested in the plain prepackaged plates that can be found at the warehouse giant super stores. Offering 5 to 10 designs in 3 or 4 wood choices is not ECLECTIC. We had offered custom wood switchplates for over 10 years and are sorry to see a disruption in this service right now.
We are also NOT interested in imported product. We would like them to be made right here in the US. There are many reasons for that. We do want to support US Made products. And when made in the US, products do cost more, but shipping costs less, and lead times are generally more reasonable. Imported products for custom made products get a bit pricey when that foreign freight cost is added in. This is the main reason why we are closing out the granite corner shelves that we have too. When we could request a few at a time and the import cost was around $10 a shelf when purchased several at a time, that was not terribly bad. But when we get a request for one or two and then it costs $80 to bring in one or two, that is ridiculous.
Thus you will see notes on our web site how products like AC Products, Woodmont Doors, Walzcraft doors, Omega-National, Rock Solid, and others are MADE IN THE USA.
So if a professional out there can make wood switchplates and offer variety and custom requests, contact us. We also like the Manufacturer-Distributor relationship. Manufacturers make products, their network of distributors sell them. When manufacturers also sell direct to the public then they are not respecting the Manufacturer-Distributor relationship. Examples: You buy a Ford car from a dealer, not Ford directly. You buy a tube of toothpaste from the supermarket, you do not call Colgate directly.
Eclectic-ware is a distributor of cabinet and bathroom hardware and other home improvement products. We have been in business since Dec. 2000. We like helping customers with hard to find products and some that have custom criteria to them. Why be ordinary. We do plan to expand upon our product lines. And much of that will happen after the new format of our website takes place. We know it is old - But it is still extremely informative and helpful.
