Which website do you buy your glass/equipment from?

I would love any feedback, the postage prices are to high for me to do any real business with overseas companies.

Peppertown Gemworld (Virginia, Queensland) sells glass by the rod if you want to try out a colour.

Gemworld are about to sell CIM glass, the whole range apparently !

Unfortunately for Dichroic glass you have to go overseas, Frantz have the best selection.

I always get mine from Chockadoo (https://flameworkingsupplies.com.au/) because Cathy sells Effetre, Vetrofond, Reichhenbach, and Bullseye. I'm pretty sure she has dichroic glass as well.
