Where I Buy Stuff

Whooooiiieee, I just placed an order at FireMountain Gems. Big order. $100 order. What's cool is that I went just over 50 items and turns out that placed me in a more favorable pricing category. I ended up saving $98. Just a boat load of stuff.

A major part of it are bead assortments. I've got some already and have used them a lot. So, I'm replenishing my stock and adding to it with new colors. Also, a lovely resin piece with flowers in it. Figure I can make a necklace for myself and another for a friend. A gauge so I can see what sizes the beads are that I'm using. Split jump rings because I can't seem to get the hang of soldering the open ones I've got. Rubber goo to put on the ends of my tools so they don't scratch (like has been happening with the crimpers I use). Lots of cord to use for bookmarks. Maybe I can get a store going over at Etsy.com Anyway, big order. I've got that much in our PayPal account for all the PayPerPost stuff I did on my other site. But, somehow I just feel guilty spending that much dough.

Have you tried buying bead supplies from some Etsy store owners too? Some of them sell stuff that you can't get at FMG.

Check out Flamegal and Byzantium, both of which offer fabulous stuff! (I am NOT getting paid to say that, either--these are my bead-friends!) :)
