I'm looking for cheap plastic and glass beads in wholesale bulk lots?

I need to order beads by the thousands. A few of you have answered my previous question on the same thing but I can’t reply to my own post so I’ll thank you here. I called the canadian site and they said that there price is per bead. I can get smaller quantities down the road at the fabric store but they have very limited selection. At least there I can get 315, 8mm beads for less then $2. Less then a penny a bead. I just love the more professional look of the glass beads. I’ve been getting the clear beads and using the Krylon Plastic paint to make a few different colors but the paint is heavy in some spots and the clear bead sticks out in other spots. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanx, Jason
