Look what i've bought off eBay!
Bea's Super Cool Purchase
:D

I've been looking around the local dollar shops trying to find some pony beads. In the past i found a 40g bag for $2 which i'm guessing was about 200 beads, very good value. I've looked and looked but just haven't found any. Earlier i searched eBay and i discovered the above sale, obviously i instantly got dad to make the purchase for me. Can you imagine the toys i can make with 1250+ beads?!?! :eek: :rolleyes:

In addition to that i've ordered some more supplies from My Parrot Shop so i should be set to get creative next week. I've ordered some more cotton rope, paper sticks, till rolls (looks like birdy toilet paper, lol), pacifier beads, o-rings (for hanging toys from)...i think that's it.

And then there are the quick links and some extra beads which Boomberry has kindly posted to me! I can just feel lots of new toys will be made once all these bits and pieces get to me.

I will of course post some photos of the end products, and hopefully of my lovely tiels modelling the use of them. ;)

Good job bea. I'm waiting for money lol. With school soon starting i have to spend most on stuff for school. I found a site that has 500 neon pony beads for about $5 cnd. Great price really considering i'm paying about $5 here for 100. I'm ordering some cotten this week i hope. Just for to wait for the person to get back to me.

Also these are really nice finish to some projects if you can find them



I couldn't find any so i was going to order some at .30 a bead( was going to order $13 in them which would have been 44 beads). I went to wal mart and found about 40 for $6. I used them to finish off a swing i made and its looks great. Still waiting to make a few more things before i post what i've made.

Amazing how we spend our money on our birds but feel so good about it and people use the term they are " Just birds".
Yeah, i'm sitting here with the absolute bare minimum in clothes (a few tops, jeans, and a couple of jumpers) but i'm spending all my money on the birds. :p If they're happy, i'm happy.

I'm lucky my mom is spending a little on use for school stuff. I would have nothing lol. I don't get new cloths much. Most jeans i have wear out and them i am forced to get new ones. I know of a shirt right now that much be 3-4 years old but i still got it and wear it. still looks like new though. i'm pretty exctied for new stuff though. My bike has riped most of my jeans in the leg.

Wow! You did well finding them, such good value as well! :D

I couldn't find any cheap beads for making bird toys, until I stumbled accross a small shop in town and bought a whole bottle of them for £0.79p!! It's amazing what you can find out there!

40' of cotton rope would cost me a fortune!! :p It's actually ok because the 1/4" rope i buy for $2 a metre still seems too thick. So i can actually split it into two meaning i have twice as much rope to use. ;)

My beads still haven't got here, but then neither has the rope and stuff so i wouldn't be able to do much with them would i? :p
