I have 2 cake orders for the end of January..One is a Diva cake in Hot pink and Black and the other a Mardi Gras cake in Purple and Green.I went to Michael's this morning to buy Otrich feathers/Plumes..You know the lovely tall feathers you see on all the cakes...Well no go...all they had was crafts feathers for kids and 1...yes 1 purple feather like I wanted and it looked really skinny...


What am I going to do icon_cry.gif
I've tried calling costume shops here also and the same...have to buy in bulk...Ahhhhh...what do I do now??

Anyone know of any online stores who sells Ostrich feathers/plumes in singles for a reasonable price?..Not $15.00 each like some are selling...

Where do you get yours??

I am so frustrated... icon_mad.gif

The store I used to use just closed in December, so now I need to look for a new supplier too. Did you try...

http://www.mardigrasoutlet.com/C177D2/Feathers.html

Looks like some of the employees from the Online Dealer I used are openeing a new store, site isn't up yet but they have contact information http://fancyfeather.com/ . Unfortunately they are in IL and don't appear to have a 1-800.

I don't know if they will ship to Canada.

Do you have a Hobby Lobby where you live? If so they sell them for like $3 or so. You may even be able to buy them online but I'm not for sure about that. If not I don't mind buying them for you and shipping them to you.

Here in Canada there is no Hobby Lobby....Thanks for the offer Regina..I may take you up on it..I have a call into a local costume shop and she is supposed to get back to me whether she can mix the colors and of course price...I still have a few options and some time but it just puts a wrench in my plans... icon_wink.gif

Laurel,
I can send them to you if they don't ship to Calgary. There are 2 different kinds of Ostrich feathers, Drab and Plume. The drab feathers are smaller flatter and less "Fluffy" while the Plume feathers are longer and fuller and cost a bit more. Just something to keep in mind when you are looking for them.

Here is another site http://www.eskayfeathers.com/category_s/313.htm
