Aside from firemountaingems and jewelrysupply, what other online sites are there that sell a good and wide range of beads?

I'm looking in particular for beads that are a bit more unique and perhaps, vintage or kitschy.

Any ideas? I haven't had much success finding a good wholesaler.

Thanks in advance!

This may or may not be helpful.

I have been hesitant about buying beads online, because when I select beads I like to hold them, see the subtle variation of color, size, finish, and quality. So I would recommend using online either only for things you have used before, (for example I have used Toho seed beads, so I'd order from them) or if you really have no other sources.

For really unique beads, maybe you could find a beadmaker that would be willing to make some things for you. I was recently talking to a beadmaker who, when she found out I was making jewelry for sale, offered to do this for me. If you use a lot they may give you a price break.

The first two have free shipping inside the States, btw; the last two have the best selection of vintage, etc.
