I live in the Athens area, but I am having the hardest time trying to find a specific thing. I am making a messenger bag, and the straps are adjustable. So, I need a buckle slide. I'm not sure if that is the exact name for them, but that is what is on the pattern. I have looked at Joann's, Hobby Lobby, and two Wal-Marts. I also went to the thrift store looking for overalls, but I wasn't going to pay $9 to use one slide.

Do y'all have any other places to look, or somewhere where you have successfully found this item.

Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.  Grin

hm.  I assume you're talking about the thing that's like a rectangle with 2 slots in it?  I guess that the only place I can think of that you haven't tried is Hancock fabric, and I don't know if they would have such a thing!  Or Michaels, but they don't really have much sewing stuff any more.  good luck and if I come across one I'll let you know.

I needed 1.5" metal. I found them on ebay under triglide buckles, not slide buckles. Thank you both so much!

have you ever tried potter's house on prince avenue in normal town?  they have really low prices on clothes (thrift store) and you could probably find materials there for cheap.

I didn't check there. I love potter's house. I should have checked there before buying them online.

Hey! I live in the Athens area. With all the talk about thrift stores-there's a Habitat for Humanity thrift store behind Potter's House. Coming from out of town on Prince Avenue you turn left right past the Potter's House and it's across the train tracks. I've found way cheap stuff there. There's a lady up front who sort of just decides on how much things are and it's usually hardly anything.
