Sources of Canes

In many cities there are organizations which sell white canes that you may examine before you buy. The following nine organizations sell canes through mail order catalogs. When you compare the catalogs, you will find that even in this short list some of the equipment comes from common sources. Most of these organizations sell a wide variety of items besides canes, but this booklet is concerned only with canes and related equipment. Each catalog has more detail than this summary. You should neither order from this summary nor consider it an endorsement.
