1  CANADA / Ontario / Re: jewelry displays in toronto? on: April 24, 2006 05:21:20 PM
Try Lacey's on Queen (in office building across from St-Mikes Hospital) Thats where I bought all my jewellery displays. They offer them in plastic and leatherette. Plus there's ring stands&boxes, bracelet bars, earring stands,etc.
You do not need a vendor's permit to shop there (but if you have one of course bring it along to avoid paying the PST)


Good luck! Wink

The Fresh Collective on Queen West is seeking your talents!
(women&kids wear, jewellery and accessories)
Yes, you must work one day a week in the store but its a great way to expose your product to the masses.

If youre interested, please visit their site for more info:

Yes, I agree on the poor bead selection at Walmart! Is there a Micheal's Crafts store in London? They have a way better selection compared to Walmart and sometimes some of it goes on sale.
If not, if you can make a day trip to Toronto there are plenty of places to shop for beads, all on the transit lines. The best place (and my favourite!) for deals in bulk and for findings is Arton Beads on Queen West. On the other end of Queen (way east in The Beaches area) there are 2 bead shops...ones called Created by me and I forget the other one's name. There is also The Sassy Bead Company at Yonge and Eglinton.
If you have a vendors/business permit then you can shop online or in person at this Canadian site:  www.johnbead.com 

good luck with your bead shopping!

Other places to check out in Toronto:

(so many places to list but here's some of my fav places to go to)

"Fresh Collective" at Queen&Euclid (artisan co-op with lots of neat original clothing and jewlery) www.freshbakedgoods.com

"Propaganda" at 686 Yonge St right next to the Scientology building (more fun designer clothing,accessories,etc)

"Sassy Beads" at 2076 Yonge St   www.sassybead.com

 Arton Bead and Kensington Market....already mentioned by other cool peeps in this topic!

BTW, there is a H&M at Yonge/Bloor (and its usually not as infested with tourists like the one in the "Creaton" Center, haha)

And if you have time I recommend visiting the Distillery District                      

Also if you go here you can find where to shop for other things, restaurant guides, etc:  www.torontolife.com/cityguide/cityguide.cfm

7  CANADA / Ontario / Re: One of a Kind Spring Show - Toronto on: March 21, 2005 07:51:57 PM
Here's my take on the One of A Kind Craft Show if you have never gone before:

I like to go to just look around and get ideas. (the jewlery is my fav)
If your hungry when you get there, go to the food section first for yummy samples.
Bring a water bottle, there's free spring water coolers throughout the aisles.
Expect some high prices since the rate for a booth rental there is mega $$$.
The xmas show is usually bigger then the spring one. (I prefer the xmas one myself)
Obviously weekdays are not as busy/crowded as the weekend days.
Check out the Barbies Basement Jewlery booth: last year I bought a funky ring that says "Crafty" and they have the neatest belt buckles!

Hope that helps...did you check out the show's website?

Have you tried visiting the Gift-Pak warehouse in Mississauga? It carries lots of packaging supplies. But be warned: its hard to walk out of there without any chocolate goodies, haha!

9  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Where can I get those Rollabind disc thingies? on: October 11, 2004 06:15:55 PM
I did get mine from Great Impressions in the end but thanks for letting me know that you have some (thats VERY kind of you!)
