Anyone had experience buying their moulding, they seem to have good prices, and a reasonable shipping policy........

Check into this VERY carefully. Anyone can bring in moulding, but you have many better, local, & longstanding choices in ATL & AL.

i have purchased some of their moulding - they usually sell close outs, discontinued mouldings, and off finishes at great prices. haven't had any problems. but you need to be careful - when they're gone - they're gone

We buy a good bit of molding from Viking. They import containers of molding about 4 times a year and then sell it by the box; excellent prices. A 2.5" leafed molding for under $.80 is pretty common. We sell the heck out of it. Viking is a good source if you worry about competing with BB's. Of course, you have to know what will sell so you don't get stuck.

The owner's been by our shop and he is a really good guy and runs an ethical company. Once we got a box of molding we didn't order (for good reason). Viking said to keep it for half price so they wouldn't have to pay to ship it back to Texas. We sold all of it length to artists who ended up paying us to cut and join it for them. We buy every pattern they have we think will sell. The molding is very good quality, about what Larson sells; a little better than Omega and Decor for about half the price. If you can get at it, Viking offers a huge buying advantage. Warren

Does anyone have the phone number of Viking Moulding or at least the detailed address? I searched the internet but found nothing. Thanks
