Check out Hobby Lobby and Joanne’s for some bigger pieces. THey may be a bit more expensive, but they’ve got tons of sizes and shapes if you need some statement things. Go cheap on the ‘filler’ pieces, dollar stores, thrift stores, ebay. You can also use rings, and pendants just by wrapping the wire around them.

If you prefer to buy in person, not online check out thrift stores and second hand shops.  Look for jewlery in general not just brooches.  I used a bunch of earrings, shoe clips, rings and necklace pendents on mine because they were cheaper then a brooch.  Once I had them wired and in the bouquet, you couldn’t tell what started as a brooch and what was something else.

Check out Goodwill and Salvation Army stores occasionally.  It’s never a guarantee, but you can still score some really awesome deals there.

@MissNoodles:  I got most of mine off e-bay. I just set the settings to time ending soonest 1-3$ max price and free shipping. It sorted out all the pricy ones.
