Looking to buy used mardis gras beads

Any of you know anyone selling them or have any for sale by any chance. I will buy them for 0.40 cents/lb packed in dozens. I will be taking out an add in the local paper soon but figured it didn't hurt to ask around on here also.

Dude, you can probably find someone that has them in their attic that is willing to give them away.

Not down here. I think the only reason some people go to the parades is to sell the beads the next year.

Is there really a difference between new and used beads?

re: Looking to buy used mardis gras beads
About half the price. I pay $26-28 for a case of new 7mm 33" beads which is 5 gross and weighs about 27lbs. at .40 cents a lb it works out to $10.80/case and I ride with 40 case. Basically for our route down here if you want to throw without running out till the end it takes 200 gross of small beads about 200-300 stuffed animals/footballs and another 5 gross long beads. Costs about $1400 if you buy everything new each year. I have seen people ride with more than that also. Houma parades ride with more throws/person than NOLA or BR.

Per rider I bet so. Those clubs require everyone to have the same throws in the amounts set by the club.

I had a rummage sale last summer and gave them to anybody who stopped by. It was a hit.
