Hi I'm not sure if someone else has asked this before but what are the best quality beads? Like what brand and where do you get them? I usually get mine from walmart and michaels.. some of walmarts beads are crappy. Some of Michaels beads are good but not all. xc The walmart beads always scratch me because they're made so cheap. So yeah I was just wondering. :)

"killergummibear": joanns is my best store for pony beads! they let you use multiple coupons and they have an app that always has a 40% off coupon.perler.com is the best for perler beads. they have every color imaginable plus the more you order the cheaper they are. i was buying 1000 count bags for $1.79 or less. at other places they can be $3-5 for the same bags. shipping is the only downside cuz they can take a week to get to you.hope this helps Thank you! I've never bought any pony beads from Jo Anns before, I'll definatly go there!

JOanns is def quality beads but they're not cheap. I shop at consumercrafts.com and get the same beads JOann's sells for like 1.50(for 500). Also great color choices! I work at Michael's and the beads are OK but not great. However they do have some cool new Foam Beads and mustache beads there now in the kids/summer section. Check it out!

I get my beads mostly from ponybeadstore.com, they're cheaper than wal-mart beads but they're INCREDIBLE quality ^_^ Occasionally (whenever I'm desperate) I get some beads from amazon.com (I get the 1lb opaque mix/neon pack), and they're ok (kinda weird shaped in my opinion but nothing too bad). ^u^
