Hello British lovelys,
So i have searched this site, and checked out all the results for purse frames, and clicked on all the websites for snap shut clasp thingys, but they are all american! i was wondering if anybody can tell me where i can get some purse/bag frames in the uk! preferably delievered to my door unless anybody knows of a secret magic bag making shop in the swansea area! you know the ones...the vintage style snap shut type.
Thanks all x

if you have a primark near you I would just buy a cheapo bag there and salvage parts for it. i saw a wooden-handled bag with magnet clasps for 5 and was v.tempted as the parts alone would probably cost that.

i started a thread on this board aaages ago about bag handles but it seems to have disappeared  Sad

www.kleins.co.uk is amazing, and the cheapest out of all the sites i've seen.

you could also try www.josyrose.co.uk

hope that helps  Grin

Hi to everyone

I see that you are on the hunt for bag making things (sorry don't have frames right now but will soon) and that some of you kind folks have listed sites in the UK that sell bag making supplies.

I just wanted to tell you that my bag making supplies shop went live yesterday (based in the UK).  I have good selections of all the various bag making bits you might need  (and I made a point of making sure that when I priced everything that my prices were cheaper (and that includes the postage too  Grin) than all of the suppliers listed in this thread.  We post and pack within 24 hours and there is FREE SHIPPING offer available.   

http://www.u-handbag.com  We hope you'll find something you like!

If you have any questions please contact us thru the site, thanks, Lisa

debzy your a star! do you just google all those? my google skills must not be up to much! i went to hobby craft today. i could quite easily live there i decided, although they have a distinct lack of bag frames heh.

i like your advertising skills lady bag ;o) i'll be keeping an eye on your website for def.

rhicooqui, some are google results, some are found through sewing world magazine (love it!) but i've not actually ordered from any of them! ( i did order some printed labels from kliens though) i was suprised at hobbycraft's lack of interesting handles too. i think it's a more 'carftu' shop that a 'sewing' shop.

lady bag, that's a really nice site you've got there! love those rattan handles, think i'll have to treat myself soon! what are those amy butler bag patterns like, are they easy to follow? i love her shapes.
