That is great Wyoh!  I know people in the UK have been wanting a supplier for Antron. I'll add you to the list in the Antron announcement.

Thanks Shawn, much appreciated.
The Antron Fleece and my other products are selling really well so far. If I wasn't working full time and didn't have a one year old to look after I might actually find time to put a bit more effort into my online business!

Thank Billy, its nice to be back. I see you have puppet making kits on your site, great idea. I might buy a few and see if they sell in the UK. I would like to have a stall at some xmas craft fayres and I think they'd be great for that Smiley

This is great I really want to try antron fleece once in my life but it is so expensive to ship to Holland. It is possible now to get it more often. When I have the money I will order it with you it will save a lot of shipping costs
by the way do you have contact cement in stock too...............
I think that you can have big business because I think you are the first one I know that have a shop in this stuff in UK/Europe

Thanks Gompie.. thats the plan!
I've sold my first shipment of Antron Fleece that I had a few months back and now have a new lot in. I was lucky as GA Stage had way more orders for it than they could fulfill.
I currently stock Antron Fleece, La Doll Stone Clay, Liquid Neoprene and Liquache. There are many more things I want to stock. Rit dyes for example which I have seen in the UK but not very often.

I am open to suggestion though. I don't currently stock cement but if you and the other guys on here want to tell me whats good and we find that we can't get it in UK and Europe then yes, I'll see if I can import some Smiley. The idea is that I buy in bulk and then can sell on in small quantities at a more reasonable price. Fortunately all my US suppliers have been more than happy for me to sell to the UK and to repackage their products, they've all been really nice about it so I feel quite positive about the whole thing. I just need to put a bit more work into advertising.

The next things on my list are silica powder for making dry flower arrangments and thai polymer clay (dries kinda rubbery) for making flowers with! Anything thats hard to find is going on the site and with any luck, my own creations too at some point! I'd also like to stock books, dvds and puppets made by some of the lovely people on here and to fill the site with useful tutorials and links. I have quite a way to go though!

Wyoh,
Contact cement may be hard to import since it has stuff in it that is highly toxic. It all depends on the laws. In the US we use Barge brand in Canada they use a brand called Lepage.  You might just want to see if there is something in your country that would work instead. The common use for contact cement is for woodworkers that make cabinets. They use it to put veneer on the wood.

Thanks Shawn, I'll look into it and maybe post on a woodworking forum and see what they come up with!

A google of barge cement in the UK brings up this
www.theidentitystore.co.uk\productdetails.asp?id=763&subcatid=

Usefully the shop is just down the road from me. I'll contact them and ask if they've had any problems importing and if I can buy from them at trade price to sell on to puppet people. Most places seem willing to help so far as I'm not in direct competition!

If there are any other product suggestions, keep em coming!

... and within seconds the nice people at 'theidentitystore' reply with this...

Thank you for your enquiry. The authorities that are, think because it’s called “Barge” it’s got to be sent by sea. Well it feels as silly as that.

 Our supply is erratic at present so we are in contact with the US trying to work out some reliability. Obama seems to have his hands full at present though.

Of course we will do something with you and will be in contact as soon as we have news.

It’s a beautiful thing you are involved with.

Best Wishes

Jackie and Peter

(made my day that).

Hopefully will have some for sale soon!

That is pretty cool Wy!  Just goes to show that sometimes you just have to have the courage to ask the question. Smiley Sounds like you may have just established a very valuable contact.

Wy,
    I think this is awesome!  Such a needed resource.  We have been shipping limited supplies overseas, but this should help them out greatly.  Items you might consider would be the small and large eye blanks.  http://www.outoftheboxpuppets.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=165.  I spoke with the manufacturer and he has only shipped to Canada, but I'd be happy to see what I can do as far as bulk pricing and supplying them to you.  PM me if you are interested.  These are items we have also shipped overseas as well as the Antron.
