I've bought frit from the following. I loved them all! They both added extras to my order, which was a very nice surprise.

http://www.emeraldartistry.com/
http://glassdiversions.com/

I'm definitely going to add http://www.if-designs.net/ to my list, though. Thanks for raising your hand, Karin!

Maybe a stupid question, but how can I subscribe to this thread? Do I understand correctly that I get an email every time someone adds a new post? Thanks for your help.

Hi Susan, I bought your sample kits a few weeks ago and they are very nice . Unfortunately I had to pay a large amount of money to customs . But the sample kits are a very nice way to get to know your frits.

Esther,

Ouch! I try to check all the areas that give you the best advantage at customs. So so sorry! I am so happy that you liked the sampler kit. If you have any suggestions on customs, please let me know.

Best Wishes,
Susan

Not your fault Susan, it's the Dutch customs that are the problem. Flat fee envelopes pass much easier, but they always keep and check boxes and then add a fee you have to pay before you receive your order. So I learned from that, and now I always ask if orders can be put in flat fee envelopes. But since I ordered all your sampler kits, a flat fee envelope was not possible.

Hi Karin, I assume you sent the email to my work address? I cannot see that until tomorrow morning, sorry. Yes that box might be the problem, because I still have not received it. So I think customs still has it. I almost hope they have it, because that means it is not lost. But I really have no idea where the box might be at the moment.

Ah, I was just thinking that. I could also start a new thread, but would need guidance on what forum it should go on.

I wouldn't mind making the list annotated if vendors wanted to send me that information. I'm thinking something like:

single glass or blends
Type of glass/COE/
Ships to (USA Only/Internationally)
Location
Specializes in (reactive class etc.)
Accepts payments types (paypall, cc, etc.)

Anything else we'd like to know?

I always like to know where my package will be shipped FROM. That way, I know when to start stalking the mailman!!

I'm from Pennsylvania in case any one wants to know.
