I'm in need of a few specialty tips that I can't find at my local craft stores, and we have no cake decorating supply stores that are within an hour. (Living in a tourist area isn't always so great!) Until we move back to our old area, cross-country, I need to find a place to buy things online. I like Sugarcraft for a lot of things, but my current order is tips only and I'm trying to keep shipping down. Anyone have good websites to recommend? Thanks!

I'm going to answer my own question! icon_smile.gif

I checked all over, and the only places that had all the tips in stock that I needed (some were specialty) were Wilton directly, and I found some other great places to order from, but shipping everywhere, for something as small as tips, was still ridiculously high. (My teen daughter has an online book sale business so we are pretty familiar with the cost of shipping, and I can mail a pretty heavy 8x11 book for less than what I paid to have these tips shipped.) In the end, I went with sugarcraft as they had the best selection, a lot of good recommendations and charts, and their shipping was the best for the 12 tips I ordered.

Joann's has a sale right now on tips and other related items, I think 30% off, but they didn't have several of the tips I needed.
