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.

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.
