  • Brooch findings

    Bit annoyed as I thought I had found a really good deal on brooch backs until I discovered that you have to spend £10 on said site - got my order up to 10.36 but then it wouldn't let me checkout. Turns out that the order has to be £10 without postage!! Do lots of bead companies do this? Wouldn't have minded but there was nothing else that grabbed me and I try not to buy for the sake of buying.
    Anyway - can anyone recommend a good site that does brooch backs? It can have a minimum order as long as it has decent stuff on there!!
    Thanks

    I got some brooch pins from good old jillysbeads not sure if this is what you meant, there's no minimum order and they are quick with delivery.

      Thanks - they've got the Russian doll beads I saw a while back but couldn't find again! Might have to order from them - thank you! Who needs brooch backs when you've got russian doll beads!

              Brooch Findings

              Do you use kilt pins at all and if so, do you find them good to work with ?

                Not all bead shops have minimum orders

                  I find the minimum orders on site really frustrating - the other day I needed to order some unfinished wooden beads to use as a core for another beaded bead project I fancy. Didn't really need anything else from them, so had to buy extras just to reach the order minimum

                  It frustrates me, which is why I don't do it, but I can understand why some places might do it.

                  Oh, and I have the brooch pins too, if anyone's still interested.

                    At the risk of being slapped by Peter (oooh, if only!) I can really recommend the person who is also known as Lili and has posted on this thread (hint, hint)

                      It really annoys me when there is a minimum order before postage, another things is the high P&P I get charged from some suppliers for sending to France. If some suppliers can be reasonable why can't all of them, I wanted one watch face and the P&P was more than than the watch

                        Minimum orders are a pain. That's when i end up buying things I never use!
                        I have brooch backs - and no minimum order.
