Depending on how you intend to use them, bamboo poles can be a beautiful accent, a useful tool or both. Yet even with the increased popularity of this material, it can still be somewhat difficult to get a hold of. Here are some tips for shopping for bamboo poles.
Check out local chains in your area. Specialty decorating stores like Pier 1, but also mainstream department stores like Target and Wal-Mart, will often carry bamboo poles as decorations or carry bamboo-constructed furniture.

Shop at on-line stores specializing in wholesale bamboo. Some of these include www.bamboosupply.net, www.calibamboo.com and www.bamboohabitat.com. You can order at these websites and have bamboo shipped to your home.
