My answer to everything is Etsy 😉

@bells: you can have one made on etsy… there’s a few sellers who have them, or you can put up an alchemy request for someone to make one for you.  I had wood table numbers made by seller lizartistry  i’m sure she’d do an ampersand for you.  my numbers were about $5 each, and i had to convo her to get a custom listings, as she didn’t have the numbers for sale in her main shop.

anthropologie has a metal ampersand, i think, too.

Do you have any A.C. Moore’s near you? We got our wooden one there, with all the wooden letters, etc. Guess it just depends on different stores. But if not, I’d definitely go to Etsy. It’s a god-send!

I have a friend who is a woodworker and he could probably do something like that. If anyone wants to send me a message and I will give you his website and he does custom work. He’s great!

I was going to suggest Hobby Lobby, that’s where we got ours.  But the one you got at AC Moore is much cuter!  I wish they had better ampersand fonts at all the stores.

I don’t have any on my etsy, but my fiance and I made our own letters and ampersand for our engagement pictures. We have access to a laser cutter, so we just bought the thickness of the wood we wanted, set up the file on our computers, and the laser cutter did the rest. 

Then I painted them the color I wanted for our pictures. 

If you don’t find something that looks like the color you want, let me know- we can make them in almost any font you want (you just can’t use fonts that have parts that don’t touch)

Here are some links to the ones we made for our e-shoot.
