I had a waterbed from the time I got my first bed till the time I was 24 and accidently popped it somehow when I was sleeping. Long story lol. Anyway, I think they have specific stores that deal in selling them. I would go with that. I am not sure what ones they have in GA tho. Good Luck!

lol ^ 

I would say Joann’s or Michael’s, because you can bring in a 40% off coupon for them.

@zsgirl: LOL I read it as waterbeds too and thought who has a water bed now? this isn’t the 80’s? LOL

I bought them at Joann’s with the 50% off coupon. I just bought one per week with my coupons until I had enough.

I got mine from a floral wholesaler, but at the time my mom was a floral design student.  I would try getting them in bigger quanities if you need a lot of them somewhere online.  I am using them for my centerpieces and needed a lot, and it would have been expensive to get them at a retal store.

I’m kind of curious now – can someone post a pic of what you’re talking about?

Dollar tree.  They come pre-soaked.

I’ve seen them at Hallmark and other places, but they are probably much more expensive there, since DT has had them for ages.

I got mine from Michaels. They had “Water Jewels” for $0.50 (on clearance, so being phased out I bet). I got them about a month ago – picked up about 15 things. I believe each package makes 1 gallon. They were hanging in the same row as the other vase fillers.

Walmart also carried them, but was $2-$3 a thing I believe (and made a smaller amount).

@zsgirl: I am using waterbeads for the centrepieces at my wedding, and I found it WAY cheaper to buy a dealer kit from a bead supplier.  How many beads do you need???  Might be a cost effective way for you to get them as well.

I got mine at walmart. I think they were like 1$ a piece, in the floral section.
