Where would you buy...?

I crocheted my own purse and all that is left to do before I can start using it is add the closures/clasps... I've been at Hobby Lobby and only found one type, have been quickly at Hancock fabrics and can only rememberseeing one type as well... Where would you go to buy that? I don't want to rush into this as it is a dear project to me and want it to be perfect...
TIA

  • Do a search online. There are many online stores/shoppes that carry such items. http://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&channel=s&hl=en&source=hp&q=closures%2Fclasps+purse&btnG=Google+Search You can also try the various auction sites other then Ebay (yes there are others out there). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&channel=s&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=2kL&q=auction+sites&btnG=Search&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g10

    Good luck you always want the best to finish off your projects.

  • If you have these stores in your area, you can check them out. I've also included their websites so that you can see what type of materials they carry, but most are actual stores you can visit nationwide.

    Michael's Arts & Crafts (www.michaels.com)
    Ben Franklin Crafts (http://www.benfranklinstores.com/newpage/bfcrafts.asp)
    Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts (http://www.joann.com/joann/)

    If none of these work for you, you can "GOOGLE" for an online store that may carry what you're looking for. =) Happy hunting!

  • If you can't find what you're looking for, maybe buy a purse from a second-hand store and take the clasps off it.

  • Since it has sentimental value as well as your own craftsmanship I agree, do not use something you are not totally happy with. All the suggestions have been great. I like the idea of finding a vintage purse and reusing the clasps.
