    Hi all,

    I know some people might not want to say but does anyone want to share any good/cheap UK websites where you buy your supplies?

    I sometimes spend hours searching and adding up prices but get so confused when they start selling in weight and then find myself unsure if I have actually found somewhere cheaper!

    The last two times I have bought from International craft and they seem fairly reasonable?

    Would anyone like to share plllleeeeaaaaaassssseeeee?

    USA or other country sites welcome too if they have cheap prices!

    Thank you

    I have not used beads for some time now, but I used to use The Brighton Bead Shop, they have an online facility and postage charges are fair.

    I have found the brighton bead shop very reasonable. However, I've found that The Bead Shop in Covent Garden is very reasonable for buying earring findings in packs of 100 or more. I usually go in there so I'm not sure what their p+p charges are. I've found Ebay to sometimes have some hidden gems as well if you have the patience!
    When I was in New York I found some amazing bead shops, which were very cheap but they don't seem to do mail order

    I have just used pjbeads - the order hasn't arrived yet but the prices were very good. I found the site via another forum suggesting them.

    PJ Beads are good, but don't order anything if you need it in a hurry...

    PJbeads has some nice stuff but when I ordered from them quite alot was out of stock although it still said available on the website so I was disappointed as I didn't get half my order.
    I like Jillybeads they always send a thank you freebie
    and beadservice, and beadsdirect

    OOOOps I wish the person who had suggested PJBeads had said all that when they suggested them. I may not have placed an order had I known.

    There is a new beads store in the UK that is reasonably priced but I can't say what the name is as I might get done for spamming. But suffice to say it can be found in someones signature, just a thought.
