Best place for beads

shrughello hi I was wondering where is the best place to get Kandi beads that are a good quality and all the same size. Recently got some from michaels and not sure if that is the right route to go. What do you guys think.

Plastic beads USA has the best prices at .002 cents a bead but the large bags at the bottom of the page are slightly better price. to find the cost per bead ((price)/(amount)). Hope this helps!

I get mine at walmart or on amazon! Amazon has some bulk bags for a reasonable price. Walmart has the sets for a little over $10. I don't see what's wrong with getting some at Michael's, though. Usually they have pretty cool specialty beads!

https://www.beadtin.com/ is where I get my beads from, and they have elastic/string on there as well. $2.59 for a bag of 500. The only drawback is that shipping can get expensive, the shipping cost on my last order (almost 3.5 lbs of beads plus elastic) was almost $6.

I get all of mine from AC Moore. 750 beads for $3.00, and they are usually on sale, if not on sale there are always coupons and membership discounts

i use amazon to order beads. i also buy the boxes of many colored beads, and small bags of mixed or single color beads at walmart in craft section.

well kinda hit or miss walmart is decent ....... thats where i normally buy mine 500ct. baggies in either assorted color combos or solid colors for 1.97 and i get a 10% employee discount plus they have 1500ct. tubs for like less than $5 and huge fancy color set boxes arranged by colors or a fancy premium set with pearl, sparkly transparent, and solid color, watch out for holidays though. come the holidays the beads tend to be cheaper/poor quality i've noticed that i got a larger proportion of broken/misshapen beads the closer to christmas (misshapen in relation to the ones i'd used months earlier for the same project)

the biggest thing i can tell you is online stores exist and things like amazon might be good beyond that i cant remember the names of other bead specific stores
