    Hi Ladies!

    So, I have been all over town looking for some nice brads for my save the dates. However, it seems the stores only stock them "in the summer".....

    I am looking for 50 starfish or sand dollar brads in either silver or gold color.

    Being that I live in Canada, I have tried google, and ebay, but have not been able to find some that don't also come with a huge shipping cost!!!

    I was wondering if any of you ladies might have some leftover that I can purchase, or know of a place I can get some in Canada.

    Thanks!!! :)

      Forgive my ignorance -- but are brads the same things as charms? If so, I might be able to help. I just went through the same search for my save the date and settled on these:

      Create for Less

      They are a little pricer -- but they also look like they cost that little bit more. During my search, I also ran across a lot of options on ebay and there are also some on the Oriental Trading Company. I waited until the last minute so didn't have time to try it out and see if they looked okay.

      Good luck!

        I got my sand dollar brads from this site Silver Sand Dollar Brads for Discount Beach Wedding Invitations: Wedding Invitations by Formal-Invitations.com
        They also have cute shell ones.

          I was just at Michaels on the weekend and I found some really nice starfish, in silver. I think they came 4 or 5 in a package and were about 6.00. I am making my own invites and plan on adding these to them. Do you have Michaels out in Alberta we do in Ontario.

          Good luck with your search

            Okay, now that I know what a brad is -- I feel silly. Sorry!

              Thanks Ladies for all of your help!!
              I do have a Michaels, but they didn't have any.
              Maybe they were just out of stock....I'll keep checking back.

              JHarwood 2 Be, those brads would be perfect! But I kept getting "Unable to calculate shipping". ARGH!
              Thanks anyways!! :)
