Try ebay in US or UK? Why would you want to buy from Singapore, surely you'd be better buying from HK or China?

Thanks again!!!!

I am also trying to find a website in Hong Kong and China but there are all these websites with multiple listings of multiple suppliers and there is no info readily available, you have to send an enquiry...finding anything from China seem to be very confusing to me...any suggestions?


I have a great supplier in the US great prices but it takes 2 weeks to get here...I thought if I found something in Asia it would take less time...

Thanks!

I pick most of my ribbons (I usually get them for hairbows and such) at Kin Soon on Arab street. It is not as great as the deals I get on US Ebay but they have a great collection
