Shopping online

There are many sites that sell all sorts of tools for jewelry along with beads of all shapes and sizes. We have a few here locally, but most of my beads I buy from US or UK. I cannot buy for more than 32 $ at a time, or otherwise I will be charged custom duty plus a handling fee. That means I am usually looking for stores that can offer a cheap shipment option to my country. The larger stores offer as the cheapest solution a cost for shipment at 35 $. That is very expensive for items like headpins at 32$.

I have found that the smaller stores have a better shipment option, ranging from 6$ and upwards. Places like Magpie Gemstones, Lytha Studios, Auntie Beads with others are good places to shop from Norway. Grenland Stein & Sølv is an option if you don`t want to import. Especially on tools that is a bit on the heavy side.
