25 Grovesnor Rd, London, W4 4EQ
Recommendation: If you are going to buy at least 30 strands then you can buy direct much cheaper. Grovesnor don't do Internet shopping but you can send for a catalogue for £3. Their quality is excellent and service is good. Orders take around a week to come but I think that they are the sort of company that if you needed something really urgently, they would help if they could.
Recommendation: They sell charlotte cut seed beads, which while not in their online site, you can inquire about by email.
