Hello everyone

Can anyone recommend an online -shop to me? The ones overseas are fine, I guess, but not always so fine when it comes to the price of shipping. I mean - 23 dollars?? And the beads were 4? A depressing thought, I think.

I am especially interested in seed beads, and basically anything made of glass.

beadsdirect.co.uk are based in the UK and deliver elsewhere (delivery costs to Europe are £4.95) They do quite a range of seed beads and glass beads too.

Hi,

I can suggest a couple of sites in Czech for you. If you have any purchases sent regular post the charges are not too bad, but it takes a long time to get an order.  Air Mail is just crazy on the price.

http://www.springl.cz

http://www.gbbeads.cz

Both these companies sell smaller orders of beads off their web sites.

It is darn funny why Potomac Bead Company is restricted from posting here when                 xxxxxxx seems to spam.

Sorry for the misunderstanding and my goof.

I was puzzled why their emails didn't post.  I didn't think they were spamming, and i wanted to ask them if they had any stores in Prince William Cty., VA, as well as Hampton Roads. I also wanted to invite them to buld a store here in my hometown of Vestal, NY.  Our town clerk said our supervisor(the equivalent to the mayor) would welcome them with open arms.

If the members doesn't report spam, it gets by the watch dogs. So whenever you notice spamming, please don't respond to them,that encourages them to spam more, because someone responded. Help us all keep spam off this site report abuse when you see it.. 

That said, however, when someone asks for a site to buy, you are opening the door, because now it is not spam, you asked. So everyone be careful of what you ask for the spammers are out there and they are just waiting for someone to open the door for them. I know there are members that haven't been around very long, and they are looking for a good place to do online shopping, so you can expect them to ask for a good source, so you just have to ignore the spammers when they reply to this question. After all someone asked and they are looking to make a living, I don't spammers anymore than anyone else, and we had in the very short past a real problem with spammers. I found that if you just keep reporting them, and not responding to to their spams they will stop trying. Everything they get a hit from this site, it encourages them to spam more. 
Be watchful of the the original post, if the new post has a hyperlink, doesn't have a real relationship to the original post, or if the original post is really old, you can just about bet it is a spammer.

I can't say this enough,  Don't respond to them or hit on the hyperlink, but  report it as abuse. 

Happy spam free Beading!! 

 

Happy Beading!!

Shank, you don't like Cliobeads spamming the site, so why did you put their hyperlink here? That action alone makes me think that you are apart of the spam problem or are in cahoots with Cliobeads . You complain about not beinging able to spam and then you help a spammer.  ???????

I have read your past post, so I know your are honestly a good helpful member. I believe you didn't mean to help this spammer. So go to your post and unlink their site. 

Happy Beading!!

Happy Beading!!

Hi Sue,

Point well taken, but your response I feel was a little over board in an underhanded way of accusing me of being in "cahoots" with them. I have changed the post and will be more careful in the future.

Whhooops, hope I haven't done something stupid by posting my original question. Spamming was not anywhere near my thoughts. I'm pretty new here and just wanted to get some tips on where to buy beads.

Were the Potomac Beads emails spam, then?  Seemed like they were offering some helpful tips.  The posts didn't go online, though, which was curious.
