bulk or cheap shrink plastic/polystyrene/shrinky dink sheets?

bulk fine chain (like for putting pendants on, i'd love to find it in giant spools, but i don't know if that even exists!)?

where's your favorite place to buy jewelry findings, jump rings, etc?

reply here (so everyone can see it!) or PM me if you want, i'd love it!  and if i discover any good places in the near future i'll come back and let everyone know about them.

For shrinky dink sheets, there's a tutorial on here somewhere for using restaurant takeout boxes, I think they have to be #6.  You can get the boxes in bulk at a Cash & Carry (it's a restaurant supply store, there are several of them in Portland).

For jewelry, I love A Bead Source at SE 158th & Division.  They have a huge selection, and a couple of cats lounging around Smiley  I don't remember seeing spools of chain, but they do have a lot of findings.

Bulk either, I donno.  I do know chains and such on spools exist.  I saw some at sears once, but they were selling by the inch rather than the spool.

For bulk Shrinky Dink Sheets I go through http://www.dickblick.com/zz614/12/
50 Sheets is the best they can do though.
