Hi all! I've been lurking for awhile and love all the great ideas ya'll have - but now I have a problem of my own.

I'm putting together some hinged boxes and purses and I can't find latches, specificaly, non-brass latches, anywhere. I've hit JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. I looked on eBay. I've been searching google. I'm ready to pull my hair out because I've got some really kick-a** fabrics to use and I want to start them! Anybody know a good place to look? Or if not do you have some suggestions about closure options aside from latches?

I've thought of rigging up some kind of bead-like toggle clasp, but I'm really kind of got my heart set on silver-colored latches.

Here's a place with purse hardware:
www.umei.com

I haven't personally shopped their site, but it appears that other craftsters have, and to their liking.
