Department Stores (JC Penny, Kohl’s) and specialty stores (Avenue, Dress Barn), Thrift Stores (Salvation Army). I even used the rings with the stretchy bands. I started to make it myself but it didn’t look good so I got someone on Etsy (Noaki) to finish it – I love it!!!!

I know some Bees got brooches on Ebay. Someone got a whole load of them for really inexpensive.

@MissXray:  I purchased a lot from a fellow bee, the rest I got from thrift stores for about $2/each

I got a ton, id say almost 100, I’m doing silver with gray pearl for my two BMs and colorful for me, from Ebay. Just search Brooch lot. I got all mine from something watches, I don’t remember the full name but they were at least half of the ads so not hard to find. The lots are done mostly by color so its easy to find what you want. Some of the really popular ones go for around 50-60$ for 20 or so, and the less popular colors around $20. I kept watch and didn’t spend more than $30 on any lot.

EBAY!!! They are the best! I got so many awesome brooches for my bridesmaids dresses and they are super cheap!! Some of the items might take a while to come cause they are coming from places in China but they eventually made it and they were amazing.

My sister had one but instead of getting registry gifts at the bridal shower she got brooches and then had someone put it together for her. It was amazing and everyone loved the shower some pieces had great stories behind them. THe ladies like it because it gave them something speacial to shop for and knew it would be a treasured iteam,

Around here, there are a bunch of cheap jewelry stores where everything is a dollar. I’d get the “filler” from there, and then get two or three large, expensive-looking, showstopping ones on sale at Macy’s or Dillards so that it won’t look cheap.
