My current project is a handbag which requires 2 1.5" swivels, 2-1" D-rings, set of purse feet, 1/2" magnetic snap, 2- 1 1/2" end buckles and 2-1 inch end buckles. The one I'm making for myself would require the silver or nickel color and the one I'm making for my friend would require the brass or gold color. So far, I've had no luck in locating matching hardware and what I have found has been VERY EXPENSIVE or had to come to me from China!! Does anyone know of any place that carries this hardware at reasonable prices?
Thanks so much!!!

I'm not sure what you consider to be reasonable. Personally, I am willing to pay more for higher quality materials.

I am usually able to get the bag notions that I need from these two places:

nancy's notions

byannie.com

I've been happier with the stuff from Annie, but there are some things that she doesn't have.

it doesn't matter what type of sewing you do. you are sewing, and sewing is good.

Thrift store, maybe? Find a purse there with hardware you like and high-grade it?

In the past I've ordered from The Bag Lady (I think she's in L.A.) and has an Etsy shop. I found her prices very reasonable and shipping was quick.

Buckleguy.com or etsy. I ordered parts on etsy that did come from China, but only took about a week.

I have always found whatever I needed (and some things I didn't realize I needed!) at Ohio Travel Bag. Check them out
