There are many fabulous sellers right here on Etsy.
Big quantities or small, Handcrafted or commercial.
Expensive or in expensive there are lots of great sellers here.

here are my fav's

www.fusionbeads.com
www.limabeads.com
www.anybeads.com (awesome prices on swarovski crystals)
www.hamptonbeads.etsy.com
www.beadaholique.com
www.vicalla.com

if you have a wholesale tax #:

www.znetshows.com
www.riogrande.com (more pricey but extremely reliable)

and this is my fav for gemstone beads - www.proxibid.com and sign up for auctions from Mueller and Yamine and Roel Corp.

i'd have to say.. Etsy! plenty of great supplies sellers here. also try searching the term "destash" with whatever you're looking for

You don't need a wholesale tax ID for Rio Grande. But they're really pretty pricey, unless you buy a large bulk quantity of a single item.

could someone do me a favor? i'd like to see if there is different pricing at riogrande for wholesale id #'s and was wondering if someone without one on their account could check their pricing for item # 650504 14k yellow gold oval disc 6 x 4mm - just a random prodcut - my pricing is $7.45 each and it goes down to $6.90 if you purchase 3 or more.

i've either got different pricing, or i completely remembered wrong (which is probable with my poor memory).
