Hello! I am looking to buy ostrich feathers (?) (the big plume type) for a masquerade themed cake and cannot find them (have checked Michael's and Joann fabrics) does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I bought mine after a search on E-Bay - check out this seller

I bought from this one and the colors were great and so are his prices.

I bought green, purple & gold for a Marti Gras themed cake (in my pics) and they were a perfect match. Can't beat $1 each and just postage. I checked online for other shops, mostly costume shops and the prices were crazy w/shipping.

I ordered feathers from mardigrasoutlet.com and was very pleased with the price, quality, and service. I will definitely order from them again.

If you don't have time to order I happened to run across single feathers in the floral department at Hobby Lobby, not sure how much they cost, but they were large and pretty. I have usually just found them there and at Michaels in the back in packages of three or so and they are small, expensive, and not that pretty.

Hope this helps.
