Hi all :)

I hope it's ok I post this here but I'm not sure where else I could ask. :)

(if this is not allowed Mods, please feel free to just delete this post as I

don't want to cause any trouble)

Ok, in the past I have always used 2 main online suppliers for beads and

stuff: Fire Mountain and Auntie's (and ebay so that makes 3 I guess. :)

Anyway, I have been trying to find an outlet for Vintaj supplies because I

love love love the look of the brass and can't find the things I am looking

for locally. I found a few sites that I may order from but one in

particular was My question is has anyone from here

ordered from there and how was your experience? Thanks in advance for your

help, I don't know about you all but I am always a little nervous ordering

from a company that I am not familiar with for the first time.

Thanks again!


p.s. I am in no way affiliated with any of these suppliers

I have often used Fancifuls for bras stuff including findings,

filigree and stampings and they have hundreds of designs. their

on-line catalog is a little cumbersome but ok if you have patience.

their print catalog is very basic.

I do not know about "Vintaj" but Fancifuls has many vintage designs.

Good luck,

I haven't ordered from them, but the local agent here is She carries a large variety and I know her

personally, so I can vouch for her. Vintaj is VERY cool!

I didnt know what you were talking about so I did a yahoo search and

found this: ---Links-Are-Forbidden--- they offer wholesale

prices if you have a tax id. i know that pricing is very important

and i am not familiar with this type of work so please check them

carefully b4 purchasing.

hope this helps.

Hi Angela,

i bead dot com with the www (type it in like a regular website address) in Tampa Florida has had their Vintaj 70% off for several weeks. The choices were not that great the last time I looked and I think the sale ends today (Fri. 4/11). You can check and see. I have ordered pretty frequently over the last couple of years and been pleased. It is a good place to get on their mailing list because they are just about always having sales and clearances.
