Hey....

I bought my last round of these magnetic snaps here:

Magnetic Snaps at stuff4sewing.com

At my local stores, the name brand (Clover or Dritz, IIRC) are about $3.00 - 4.00 each.

The quality of the one in the link has been great. But I'm always game to find these cheaper. Anybody got a good source?

I'm making quite a few purses for samples for a pattern I intend to sell... And I'm still looking for deals on the hardware.

I just started a blog... And I just started to put pics up about these bags...

Acorn Purse #2

The bag that is the profile pic on that page has one of these magnets under the flower closure. They work well... Just wish I could bring the costs down on them.

Sure would appreciate any help on sources for these.

I bought these at Nancy's Notions on sale after seeing them on www.studiokatdesigns.com for $5 each.

Sew in magnetic snaps

You should look into a wholesale account if you will be needing these for retail sale.

Ouch!

I like the clamp in kind better, and I'm hoping to find cheaper.

There are lots of sellers on Etsy selling snaps and other bag-making supplies in bulk. Here are a few I favorited a while ago when I thought I'd try to make and sell bags for profit:

Being Bags

Purse Supplies R Us

Tantalizing Stitches

I'm not affiliated with any of them, nor have I ever purchased from any of them so I can't say whether any of them are good or not. They're just a few places I found a while ago and their prices look like they're still pretty good.
