Shredded Foam Fill.

I need some shredded foam, like the stuff they use to make furniture and pillows. I found a place in Miami, but shipping is twice what the foam costs.

Does anybody know of a reasonably priced source out here in the wild, wild west?

Have you tried a fabric store?

Found this site. 30lbs, $34.99.
Scroll to the bottom for shipping charges. It appears $12.99 for Fedex shipping.

Maybe give them a call to verify.
Some reason the link didn't take.

Sounds like the Bean Factory prices.

Believe me, I've crunched the web and called any place that had sane prices.

My post is hoping someone on here would know of a source not listed on the web.

Fabric stores sell 12 oz. bags. I need a 20~30 pound bag.

Was that Hancock fabrics? They show a store in Mesa. I have bought things from them and remember seeing huge bags of the stuff in the store nearest me.

Quick investigation concludes:

Hancocks has been bought out by Michaels and no longer sells shredded foam.
