Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows a good place to buy gumball beads (20-30mm) for a decent price? I'm wanting the faux pearls, striped and solids. They are all over etsy, but seem very expensive,  & surely these people must have a supplier...? Just looking for the best deal! TIA :)

Mamamermaid,

check your local supply stores... they may have them at a discount and also have the colors that no one else has.  Also your small jewlery shops may have them aswell.  I found a great little place inside a flea market and stumble on their sale  and came home with more than I bargained for.

Shame on you! This sure seems awfully suspicious, as though the same person posted as three different people just to get "word of mouth" out there about your business. I know I won't be doing business at your shop any time soon.

I don't get it, how do you know those three came from the same person?

All three posters only had 1 post "under their belts," too big of a coincidence in my books and all three posts were brief.  Its a trick that businesses use to get traffic into their stores or to get their store name higher up on Google.

Actually, I have no affiliation with the "repliers" to my original post. I was just looking to buy beads. And everyone has to start somewhere (at 1 post), right?!

I don't believe you were part of that, you just happened to ask a question that they answered. 

So here is what I found for you,, go to Google and do a search of 'magnesite beads' click on the images in googles tool bar. you will get pictures of the beads of all colors, sizes and shapes. I found several that could be called 'gumball beads'

Hope this helps, and don't stop asking questions, someone will come along that will have the correct answers.

Happy Beading!!

Sue,

Mamamermaid,

I apologize if I assumed you were part of a scheme. Of course I started at 1 post also. I did a google search of the 1st peson who replied to your msg and what I found let me to believe he/she was not all they made of themselves and I will just leave it at that. Welcome to the Beading Daily forums and of course you are welcome to ask any questions you would like. I apologize again.
