My hobby lobby doesn't carry anything for purse making other than usual stuff like magnet snaps and ugly buttons.  Where do you get your purse supplies?  Like handles, clips, or those things that go on key fobs?

I was making Logsio's travel bag and went looking for the things that go on the key fobs too (my original description wasn't even that clear - I asked my husband what are those thingies you pull back on to clip to things!!!! He informed me I was looking for a carabiner!!!) I did eventually find a plastic set at my local Spotlight (fabric store in Australia). My husband had originally suggested trying a hardware store or a camping store so perhaps you could try that.

Ebay, Ebay, Ebay!  Cheesy  If you google "purse supplies" or something specific you'll find many places.

Also on etsy.  I have found cheaper prices and shipping at some of the etsy shops.

I found this place www.strapworks.com. They are fantastic, they carry almost everything - including all kinds of straps. I've bought from them about 3 times & shipping is pretty fast, they are in Oregon.

Ebay, really?  I can never find what I'm looking for on etsy -- maybe I'm not searching right!  And I really like strapworks -- they do have a little of everything, don't they?

Thanks for the help, I can't wait to finally find what I need!!

Strapworks is awesome. I bought some straps from them, but never used it & it was nice stuff. Apparently, they have all different kinds of straps - just like they have all different kinds of hardware. What's real nice about them is that you can buy just ONE of anything - one D ring, one clip, no problem.

I just got my catalog from UMX fashion accessories and supplies...WOW - so much stuff - it looks great.
http://www.umei.com

the site is very blah - and no ordering from there that I could see, but with the amount of stuff they have - it looks best to get a catalog anyway - you can call in orders or e-mail. I know somewhere I saw an online order - I think it was e-mailed along with the catalog order confirmation
