Beaded Banners by Bonnie……and more……
Just wanted to give some updates on Beaded Banners by Bonnie and what I have available and what is new.
I posted some pony beads on Ebay and on my website a while ago just to see how they would sell. It was slow at first but now I am selling them pretty consistently. Because of that I have started ordering in extra bags of beads when I place orders for ones I need and am building up a nice stock of beads so they are available for customers. The beads can be found here:
There are many, many colors of beads I can order so please feel free to contact me if you need certain colors. I don’t always get the extra bags posted right away and I can place an order for ones that you need and have them within just a couple days usually. I am also working on charts with colors and prices and sizes of beads that will soon be posted on my website. I can order opaque, transparent, matte, and glitter in many various colors.
I also began posting thread in my Ebay store and customers have also started showing interest in the thread. This thread is available in many colors and lasts long because it has 125 yards on a spool. The beaded banner thread is available here:
BEADED BANNER RODS & END CAPS:
I continue to sell a lot of the very hard to find beaded banner rods and end caps. Here is the information regarding the rods and end caps:
RODS & END CAP SETS:
All Rods come with caps on both ends. Rods are a minimum of 13 inches long and can be up to 14 inches in length and are approximately 1/8 inch in diameter. The rods fit through the 6x9mm pony beads. They do not fit through the mini pony beads (see below). The end caps are removable so that you can cut the rod to a shorter length, however they do not fall off easily and will stay on a completed banner. Rods are available here:
SPECIAL ORDER RODS:
If you need rods cut to a certain length I can do that for you. The price will be the same. Just order the number of rods that you want and then EMAIL ME immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org what size you want them cut to. They can be cut in any combination (for instance 5 at 7 inches and 5 at 11 inches OR 3 at one size, 3 at another, and 4 at another). Just be specific in your email. DO NOT PUT YOUR MESSAGE IN PAYPAL…..for some reason we do not always get those messages.
I have some rods that are thinner than the usual ones and will fit in the mini pony beads. They will have a little bit different looking end cap on it because the ones pictured will not stay on them. Again, if you want the thinner rods, place your order and immediately email me at email@example.com and tell me you want the smaller ones. DO NOT PUT YOUR MESSAGE IN PAYPAL or you will get the larger diameter rods because I may not get the message.
The inside diameter of the end caps are 1/8″.
End caps are available here:
BEADED BANNER PATTERNS & KITS:
I started posting kits on Ebay. Some of the kits are from patterns I have designed and sometimes I have an extra kit that I purchased that I will post. Regarding the patterns I have designed, I will make up kits for any of those so if you see a banner or pattern that I designed and you want a complete kit of that pattern, just ask.
I still haven’t posted the patterns I have designed on Ebay but they are available by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you go to my website at www.bannersbybonnie.com you can sell most of the patterns I designed in the first slideshow. If you see something you want, just email me for prices. The prices are anywhere from $3 to $8 with most of them being $4 and $5. The $3 ones are small ones with the more expensive ones being the larger ones that need personalization of names or dates. Those prices are for me printing them out and then shipping is extra. I can email them in a pdf file instead of printing and mailing them to you, BUT they will NOT be true to size in most cases. In other words, if you build your banners over the pattern like I do they will not work and you will need for me to print them out and mail them. However, if you work with the pattern to the side of the banner and size of the pattern isn’t important, then I can email the patterns as a pdf file for you to print out and the cost per pattern is less and obviously there is no shipping.
I have posted some patterns on Ebay that I did not design. They are extra copies I have of patterns that I bought either in assortments or duplicate kits. If I have bought a kit for the second time I don’t need a second (or third) pattern, so I post the extra pattern on Ebay because I only need one copy myself. In addition, I have purchased pattern assortments a few times from Herschners I think. The first time I did it I got two different assortments and they were all different patterns. The second time I did I ordered three assortments but it was three exact same sets of patterns plus a couple were in the that first order I got! So that is why I have the extra copyrighted patterns to post on Ebay. Please do not ask me to make copies of patterns and sell them to you. If I have an extra that I purchased it will be posted. If I don’t have an extra I won’t make a copy of it to sell you. I don’t want people doing that with my patterns and I won’t do that with someone else’s patterns. Thanks for your understanding!
Here are where the patterns are posted:
Here are where the kits are posted:
I am working on some ideas for my own website and a shopping cart on there so that you can buy direct from my website. Stay tuned for more news on that in the future!
One last thing I wanted to mention is that I accept payments by Paypal or money order, so please do not feel that you have to use Paypal if you are not comfortable with that. I am also working on a way for my customers to pay by credit card without using Paypal. I personally use Paypal all the time for many things, but I know there are people that prefer to pay a different way and I am working on alternatives.
