    Zippers... best place to buy/order them?

    Hi all,

    I've spent my last $85.00 for a Vera Bradley tote, and other expensive must-have stuff! I can make these myself, with my own designs and start a business.

    I want to start making handbags, zippered totes, and little cosmetic type bags. Everything requires zippers.

    Does any one here have a good, reliable, and reasonable place to buy zippers? Fasteners, O rings, and other purse-making accessories.


    ((I already have my source for fabrics!))

    Thank you very much!

    I order from "Cleaner's Supply" online. Super cheap zippers. I always order 7" for different little wallets that I make on my embroidery machine, cosmetic bags, etc. I think the last time I ordered them they were .26cents, and then they had a buy one, get one free sale. I can't run to Hobby Lobby and pay 1.99 everytime I need a zipper to make something, so I just keep these on hand. They have a lot of other sewing supplies as well.

      I buy my zippers at my LQS, sized to what I need. Her prices are very reasonable. For hardware I have been going to the goodwill type stores and checking out the rings, etc on the bags. Last week I picked up 15 rings, 4 slides and 6 really unique clips for $8. I like to make purses, totes, duffles and this has helped with the cost.

        I think YKK zips are the best. I used to work for them, but I genuinely think they're the best.

                      I will second the suggestion of buying from WAWAK....I buy a lot of sewing supplies from them. I think they might have just about any kind of zipper you want and their prices can't be beat.

                          I've just started making bags and would love to know where to get the other supplies you mentioned (fasteners, vinyl, mesh, o-rings, soft & stable, etc).

                              I buy from Zipit. Nice selection of colors, sizes, and types. I've purchased from her etsy store several times. Fast shipping and nice quality. The purse zippers I got were a little heavier and had a thicker zip pull. Also got a bag of 50 nylon 14" zippers.
