Who Are We?

The Wholesaler was founded on 2 April 2006 by Liz Smith, grandmother, business owner and scrapbooker who saw the need for a reliable, local wholesale source of scrapbooking and craft products.

Liz fell in love with scrapbooking in 1996 when she was introduced to the hobby on a buying trip in the USA. Her initial love affair with photo albums began as a young mother with the beautiful memory albums she made for her daughters. Over the years Liz has created scrapbooks for many special people in her life including her Mother, daughters, friends and grand children.

Liz continues to share her love for scrapbooking with teenagers in her community, and now through us, with you.
