    I generally google or bing search for what I’m looking for. Most always I end up buying from amazon or overstock. I’d really enjoy that serger! Been eyeing one for a while now, but a tinsy bit out of my price range!!

    For books, I shop Half.com; sewing supplies I generally find them on sale at JoAnn’s; and, other items, I generally go to Amazon.

    Living in a rural area for years meant I did a lot of shopping online from many retailers. For craft stuff I like Fabric.com, Natural Pigments, Fabulous Yarns, Elann.com, G and S dyes, Aurora Silk, Hotpatterns among others. Ebay can be useful of course.

    I prefer anything that takes paypal as opposed to credit card. It’s also nice when they don’t soak you on shipping to Canada.

    Usually ebay and Amazon, but as a knitter, too, I also love Elann.com and KnitPicks.com. I don’t know how I could have lived without my serger, but it is now 25 years old… so a bright, shiny new one would be oh sooo welcome!

    I like Fabric.com because of the wide variety of fabrics for every project, notions and the selection of yarns for knitting is pretty good. It’s a sort of one-stop-shopping for the basics. But when I want something special I have to visit my local fabric store where nothing is ever thrown out for being out of fashion and there are shelves to the ceiling packed with a few generations worth of fabulous (and perhaps dusty) fabrics.

    I start with Amazon or etsy and then Bing search for anything I can’t find. Really depends what I’m looking for. But I sure like my Burda designs! Thank you!

    If it isn’t for something unique and handmade (I really try to go directly to the artist’s site or etsy/artfire) then do some massive searching to get the best price. Lots of Novica this year!!!

    Oh, I do a lot of shopping online. I live in a rural area so MOST of my shopping is online! Fabric.com, Amazon.com have their own buttons on my toolbar! VogueFabrics.com (I subscribe to the swatch service) and FashionFabrics.com are also favorites. For the kids in the family (and a certain DIL) BugFabrics.com comes in handy as does eQuilter.com. Ebay once in a while and Walmart.com and Costco.com every so often. But their stores are within a couple hour’s drive so I usually ship to store to save shipping. When I do shop online I try to meet what the goals are for free shipping, or in Amazon’s case I joined the PrimeClub. It was worth it since I usually buy something from them at least once a month!

    I shop at amazon.co.uk for books, etsy provides me with patterns and craft supplies. Asos and Office cures my shoe hunger.
