Hi there,

I'm going to visit my family abroad at Easter and want to bring little prezzies for friends with kids. We're talking mostly girls aged between 18 months and 5 years. I thought arts supplies would go down well, the usual stuff- feathers, tissue paper, gems, lolly sticks, pom poms, googly eyes, etc. There isn't much stuff like that over there, I mean there's some but you have to look for it, it's probably expensive, and then the idea wouldn't necessarily cross one's mind :-) So I thought, get a large-ish bag of each, split between several people (3 to be precise, or 4 if I get to keep some too), job done.

I haven't really bulk bought crafts supplies before. There's so much of this stuff online - comparing all the prices/sizes would take me a week! So, who's your favourite supplier?

I'm looking to spend about £25 max.

Baker Ross:

Some Amazon sellers that offer free delivery, e.g.

With Argos, you could actually buy 4 of those boxes for £30

Thanks! I've looked at Baker Ross, they do seem good value. Also I've just discovered a Yellow Moon catalogue in DS's book bag, they have a cashback deal with his school's PTFA. Will do a price comp between them and Baker Ross.
Didn't even think of Argos TBH... blush

Wouldn't want to go down Amazon/eBay route - would take me AAAAAGES to find everything I need from one supplier, there's no one bag size/weight, some charge postage some don't. At least when you deal with one big supplier you're only working with one size format. But thanks anyway!

Wilkinson have a range of that kind of stuff - I think, mainly kits though. The Entertainer also do - I bough a big tub full for about £5.

The Works and Poundland have a lot of craft stuff - also I think The Works have 30% off online at the moment
