I'm looking for somewhere (preferably a shop, although I would take somewhere online as a last resort) to get silver bails (glue on) in bulk (or, semi-bulk). Lincraft and Spotlight don't know what I'm talking about, and Eckersleys don't do jewellery stuff.

Come on guys, lets get this comm going again - I hate watching all the USA based comms talk about all the cool products they can get that are next to impossible for us :P

Spotlight do have an OK range of jewellery stuff and I think I've seen bails in there, I was looking for other stuff but had to go through their whole selection. It wouldn't surprise me that a Spotlight worker didn't know what you wanted though. I'm tired of having to explain fabric and sewing stuff to their staff.

Otherwise I would try a bead place. I only know the ones in Penrith though.

Spotlight workers are odd - I often have to explain things that I'm looking for, but they are just as bad at Lincraft!

Spotlight has bails but not glue-on ones. They seem rarer for some reason. I've found somewhere online that has them, so I'll try and see if they are right. Or else out in the suburbs might be good, there is nothing decent in the city!

Yep, that's them - they are just really expensive from there. $3 each is outrageous, other places have them 10 for $3!
