Hey guys,

I've been cruisin around the net trying to find of some good places to buy expendables for shows and I'm trying to reach out beyond the obvious - Filmtools. In the past I've used Expendables Recycler and really been pleased, but I'm just looking for some other options. I know a lot of places have limited expendables, but it's harder to find a place that is comprehensive with all sorts of colored paper tape, chamois, different markers, etc. Anyone have some good suggestions of places I can order from online or through email with a list and have them ship to me?

Thanks,

Evan

B&H has a good selection of eyepiece chamois and gaff tapes. Local theater supply places also stock tape.

Do you have a local grip and lighting or camera rental facility? Most stock the basics.

Barbizon Lighting has a facility in the DC area - useful if you happen to be in Northern VA. Here's the link to their online story:
