So I was randomly roaming around ebay, and I happen to find a seller who listed a 6000 bucket, 28 pegboards, and an 11,000 bucket all in one lot for about a dollar[all perler beads]. So, when the bid went off, and I got all of that stuff for 7.50$. (Some random guy kept outbidding me >.<) What a deal! It's amazing some of the lots people throw together when they want things gone.

Wow, thats a wicked nice deal on that sort of thing. I tend to cruise ebay to watch for prices, to try and catch deals, but damn you got lucky!

I found Callahan13 on ebay, now I just go through her. Easy enough to just place a custom order of whatever beads I happen to be needing at the time.

I haven't bought any off Ebay yet, but I did buy some from KoolStuff4Kids. They were a little pricey, but they have specials and coupons all the time, so I guess it evens out.

I just placed my first order with callahan13 and I have to say, she has great prices! Lets see how long shipping takes now.

Can you show me this blue bead person in California? I live in california, so it might be cheaper for me to do local pickup and save on shipping.

Koolstuff4kids were a bit pricey, since I am only 15, and my mom is supporting my addiction [I love her ALOT. ^_^]

I bought from Toys R Us, but they only had two tubs; so not what you call a good selection. Ebay does seem to have very good deals Callahan13 seems to have good prices, but I have not purchased an order off her yet, that is yet to be determined. But I will give her the benefit of the doubt. I will def. check on that "blue" person who was discussed above.

I've bought from both. I do like Callahan13 but I almost prefer Bluendash better. I like their prices and shipping time. There are some colors that you can only get from Callahan13 though. I've never bought from Blue through ebay but directly from their website
http://store02.prostores.com/servlet/bluendash/StoreFront

Just click on the Wholesale items be amazed with the prices haha. Another good thing is that if you live in the States shipping is free with an order over $60. You shouldn't have any trouble racking it up. Even though I'm in Canada they made an exception for me and I was able to get a ton of beads for a cheaper shipping cost than shopping through ebay. Hope this helps!

This is blueNdash store like 10 cents more expensive than callahan but her shipping is so fast it's helpful for when your in need of a color badly

Doesnt look like blue has any hama however. I am looking through all my colors now trying to figure out which is which and the hama palate is certainly useful.

I use callahan13 exclusively. Lowest prices, I get my package in 2-3 days at the most, and in dealing with her personally she's been polite and obliging, willing to put in extra effort to ensure a happy customer. Bluendash seems like another good retailer, but I'm satisfied with callahan13 so I don't bother with anyone else.

Yes, she seems to get a lot of happy customers and recommendations, I will definitely look into her eBay products.

I haven't bought any beads for awhile, since I bought so much from Callahan13 last time. I'll probably need some more soon, but I have used Blue'n'Dash as well, and I prefer Callahan. Here prices and selection are better overall, and since she's here on the forum to take direct orders, way easier to deal with.

Thanks to all that have given me positive feedback here on the forum. I appreciate your business.

I wanted all to know that I have Bulk Bead pricing now in place. The more you buy, the more you save. Depending on how much you buy, the pricing could be as low as $1.30 / 1000 INCLUDING shipping (this is US shipping prices).

I realize that BlueNDash is a great competitor, but you don't have to buy 6000 of 1 color to get this great pricing. Shipping on the bulk beads is always USPS Priority shipping, so you should have your package in 3-5 business days depending on where you live in the US.

Have questions, or need pricing on an order, please email me at:

gmrcdbaker13@bellsouth.net

Thanks again to all my customers and thanks to all others that have taken the time to read my message.

That's a sweet deal Michelle!

I just came back from my once-a-year art show with these beads, and I made a killing - I wanted to thank you for being a part of that.

I also wanted to let you know that you should be expecting quite the large order from me within the month. Just out of curiousity, what can I expect in the way of price per 1000, in relation to how many bags I purchase that is. I just need a general idea, even though, more than likely, I'll be buying well past the cut-off amount for the 1.30 per 1000 bag.

Here is a breakdown of my Bulk Bead pricing:

10-19 bags = $1.50 / 1000
20-29 bags = $1.40 / 1000
30-39 bags = $1.30 / 1000
40-49 bags = $1.20 / 1000
50+ bags = $1.10 / 1000

These prices listed above are all YOU CHOOSE the colors and quantities. I do have a package that is 1 of Each Perler Color for $54 + shipping.

Please understand that these prices DO NOT include shipping. Please contact me with your zipcode for shipping prices. International shipments can be made to almost any country for a reasonable price.

Thank you again, and please email me with any questions:
