That's a weird title. And it doesn't really explain anything. But, anyway,

I'm looking for somewhere (hopefully in NZ) where I can buy charms and beads to make some of that annoying jewelry that 'scene/emo' kids wear overseas. Like, hot pink guns and coloured skulls and stars and hearts and robots and bows and so forth. Don't ask me why I want them so much, 'cause I'm really not 'scene' at all. But I just do. I've been to all the bead shops in Christchurch and can't find any.

So, does anyone know of any online stores based in NZ/that will actually ship to NZ with awesome junk like that?

Thanks in advance, lovers.

They seem to have a lot of that stuff in my local emporium. So it may be a good idea to check in your one just incase

I saw some cheapie guns, dice, bows and boats (or something else random) in little bags at the warehouse. I think they were the "craft" brand stuff they usually sell there. Otherwise maybe $2 shop?

Hi! I've been looking for those kinda stuff for ages too, especially the plastic foody gumball charms. Some people on Ebay ship to NZ but the postage is heaps....like $20 something just for some lil plastic charms  Huh The closest I've got to are some cheaper pewter charms at www.secondsin.com, they're in Auz so postage isn't as much. But I'm in Auckland and I can't find the plastic ones anywhere!
