you can buy plain black and silver ones at stores that cater to stage and film. there's one in vancouver called act 1 that carries wigs, stage make up and accessories.  i'm not sure what you would look up in the yellow pages though....... like what category it would be under? good luck!

in case anyone has had the same problem finding scrabble games i have-

after searching thrift stores constantly for three months looking for scrabble games to use the tiles from, i discovered that you can order a complete set from the Hasbro site for pretty cheap. duh!

even so, by the time i figured this out, the hanukah present i was making was extremely late, so i ended up using scrabble stickers i bought in the scrapbooking section at target when we went down to the states. they're much smaller, but they're made out of balsa wood, so they look like real miniture tiles. very cool! except for the fact that balsa wood is very light, so they floated in the resin when i tried to make coasters. they still look cool, but i should have waited until i ordered the real ones.

anyway, that was really ramble-y. all i planned to say is order them from the hasbro site.

thanks, i've already been there and they only ship in the US, any other ideas anyone please?

try googling to find the actual website of the makers of the product. usually they have a "contact us!" e-mail, so you could e-mail them directly and ask them where it's available in the UK. i've had to do that in canada too, there's so many more fun products available in the US!

I posted some of these on glitter today and realized I still hadn't done so on craftster so here you go:

Fabric / Notions

Dressew - 337 West Hastings, Vancouver

Big fabric selection at very good prices upstairs, the best notions department downstairs.  Almost everything you could ever want and a bunch of stuff you didn't even know you needed.

Button Button - 422 W. Cordova
A tiny little shop full of buttons, buttons!

Fabricana -  1348 United Blvd, Coquitlam
(also in Richmond & Surrey)

Fanny's Fabrics - 1365 United Blvd, Coquitlam

There is another place (can't remember the name!) beside Fanny's and across the street from Fabricana that is a discount fabric store.

Maiwa Handprints in the Net Loft on Granville Island

Fabric paints and the like.

Paper

Paper Poet - 665 Columbia, New Westminster
http://www.paperpoet.ca
Great paper, envelopes, cool stamps, sealing wax and stamps plus my friend Tanya owns the shop and she is fantastic! Smiley

Art Supplies

Opus (Granville Island, North Van & Langley)

http://www.opusframing.com/
Loomis (on Main near Terminal)
http://www.loomisartstore.com/engl/promo/index.asp
All sorts of art supplies and some craft stuff, too.

 Cheesy Crissy

the store in coquitlam is textile clearance house and there's another location in vancouver (41st and fraser). everything is under $10 a yard, and it's great place to get notions and patterns. memberships are $5 a year and they have 50% notion sales and $1 pattern sales for members all the time. i buy pretty much all my fabric there, except for the odd quilting cotton from fabricana. they carry all the same stuff as fabricland will have, but half the price, and lots of older stock that you can't find anywhere. i tend to think of it as a treasure hunt, then you won't be bothered as much by the mess and the rude staff. (they're owned by fabricland, though they'll never admit to it, and their staff are really poorly paid, so they tend to be kinda rude)
