Hi Everyone
Just wondering what your opinions are.....How do you like to buy your beads??
As far as gemstone chips go, would you prefer buying them in bags of 100, by 10" length, or 36" length?
My shop should be almost open next week and I'm thinking of a 'pic n mix' type display for my stones, like a sweet shop where you have a little scoop and you buy them by weight, does this sound appealing? would you buy your beads that way?
I would love to hear anybodys ideas or opinions
Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time!
take care

I went to a bead shop in London last week.

I bought a few big swarovski stones for around 2 each, and some findings, then I thought il get some flatbacks in packs of 10.
Even tho I tried to keep the cost down it still came to a total of 42!!!

I reckon is you can definately use 100 of anything then they should be bought in packs of 100 as Im sure they price them so it works out cheaper that way.

Personnaly il stick to packs of 10.
