Where do you all get for beads in bulk?

8_iit 3/14/2023 05:56 pm 471

Looking for a new place to buy beads from. Bulk, wide variety of colors, low price, and decent quality. I'm fine with having to sort myself. I buy from Michaels or (regrettably) hobby lobby and their selection isn't the greatest where I'm at, so just wondering if there is a better alternative. TIA kao happy

Honestly, I buy most of my beads off of Amazon, or you could look online at walmart.

If you have Prime, you can get big packages of single or mixed colors for $5-$12 with free shipping. Watch the listings carefully because the same bag will be half price one day and back up again a couple days later depending on overstock, especially unusual colors. I got a bag of 1000 cream for five bucks on Monday. They also have tons of letter styles and some have backup packs of all vowels. OTOH things like charms can be really high, and sometimes promised delivery dates get pushed back.

I usually look on amazon, there's some mixed bags of beads that I can sit and sort that have a lot of beads, or there's a brand called The Beadery, they have bags of 900 beads that range from 6-10 dollars on average depending on colour kao big grin

@Phosfate: I got a bag of a gazillion yellows today, except it wasn't technically a bag, but a clear vacuum-sealed...plastic thing with a shipping label stuck on it. I'm not quite sure how to open it, but tonight should be amusing. blush
