plastic bracelets

Post by crystalball » Sun Sep 30, 2007 12:16 pm

I'm a massive tweefucker so I make plastic bracelets! If anyone knows of good places that sell special cute plastic beads either online or real-life shops, please tell me. I use this place here (but their use of Comic Sans drives me crazy), this one and Ebay, mostly. I've yet to find a good bead shop in London that does plastic beads.

If you want a twee plastic bracelet, I can make you one. Especially today, because I'm still at home poorly and I am a bit sad.

We don't have any size 11 in stock - I'll phone the warehouse and get one ordered in for you, shall I?

I've just ordered some lovely new beads so as soon as I get those I'll make you one, Jamie.

We have one of those The Bead Shop places in Nottingham, Marianthi.
It's got every kind of bead in the world!
I was going to try and get a job in there but they wanted people to work on a Saturday.

Oh yeah, that's where I buy all my basic beads from by mail-order. I'd love to go to the real shop cos they'll probably have more there but every time I am in Nottingham I seem to go straight from the station to the pub. It's a bugger, really.

Oh! Thanks Cara, that sounds lovely. Maybe I can take them off you next time I am up in Sheffield, if you are sure.
