Ever since I discovered that Zipperstop (warning: music) sells on ebay I’m always over there trolling for deals. Last week I caved and bought many many many zippers. $10 for 100 zips! Awesome deal.

They were barely out of the envelope before I resorted them by colour, took a couple of quick pictures and then started on the atomic blue wristlets. I can hardly contain myself.

    100 zippers for $10? But that’s… (mental math wheels spinning)… 10 cents a zipper? You had to buy them!
    Looking forward to your wrislets – I bought the miniwallet recently and I love it!

    That is a really good deal. Holy cow! And you don’t have to listen to the cheesy music on their website when you want to order zippers! :)

    There are definitely worse things you could be addicted to, like Bingo (is that a Bingo Mama mug in that one picture? awesome!).

    Awesome! I LOVE zippers too. I’m always trolling for bargains. (And your wristlet pattern. I make them by the dozens these days.)

    I discovered Zipperstop several months ago. I didn’t know they were on eBay but their regular website is amazing too. Even with shipping I couldn’t believe how inexpensive their zippers were. I think I figured out I got 50 zippers for the same amount I’d pay for 15 retail. Love that atomic print. Just the right scale for your project.
