Where to Buy Crystals for Chandeliers

I love anything with crystals and if you know where to buy them they are really inexpensive and add such an elegant touch. 

I did this post on my $7.49 daybed and had a few people ask about the chandelier.  It was my $20.00 garage sale find, but came without the crystals.  I painted it white added $12.00 in crystals and I have a chandelier for $32.00 







Here is the chandelier above the daybed



Crystals for Christmas ornaments




And Candles sconces




For a little extra romantic touch I have Romantic Adornments hanging on my candle sconce, they are available for 50% off at 




Blah, Blah, Blah, OK, so what you really want to know is where I get my crystals!
I get them from Freedom Crystals
 I don't work for these people, they don't even know I exist.  I just did a lot of research and these are the best prices I could find for crystals.  I have always received my orders promptly and in perfect condition.  There is no minimum order.

I keep a box of crystals on hand so I can always add that little something special to a project.


Now, lets not tell the world about where to get this great deal on crystals, this is just for my bloggy friends.

Don't pass something up just because it is missing a few crystals

If anyone has somewhere they get a great deal on crystals, we would all love to know!

Happy Crafting! 
Carol

Ooh Carol, your chandeliers are so pretty.
Thanks so much for the excellent tip on where to buy crystals. I find them at times in thrift stores, but they are still expensive.

I'll go over to the site and check it out. Don't worry, my lips are sealed!

Wow Carol! That site is great, and I doubt anyone could find the crystals cheaper anywhere!
I have previously bought chandeliers at garage sales just for the crystals...
I like that you can pick and choose the different sizes and types. THANKS FOR THE INFO!!
BTW, your chandelier and sconces look ooohh so yummy shabby!

Ahhh! I am so excited! I have a lamp that needs some crystals but I've been holding off since the antique stores are so expensive. Thanks for sharing your secret!

Carol ~ great post! Freedom really is the best place to purchase crystals, crystal chain, etc. I've been buying from them for nine years (boxes and boxes at a time when I used to resell them on my web site) and they have never ever disappointed me. They are awesome!

hey Carol,
I get my crystals from freedom crystal too, as a matter of fact, I have a blog post all ready to go up soon about a chandelier I found at a yard sale for 5 bucks...sure doesn't look like it was 5 bucks now! I bought french pendant crystals, the spear shaped ones and the chain from there...I love that place!
Your chandy is cute, I love crystals on everything! I have been putting them on my xmas tree for YEARS! Love how they sparkle with the white xmas lights!
Have a great day!

I think crystals dripping from things add JUST the romantic touch. No wonder you like them too. Your style is so romantic! Thanks for the info. I have been looking for an old chandelier for the master bath. Now, I know where to glitz it up if I find it.

Debbie said...

OK that is a great tip for all of us....I remember long ago looking for crystals, I found them on ebay, and they where not cheap! OK as for the MIL boobs...real, good bras! Mike midlife, yes and NO:) Tribute to DAD and turning 45...what more can I say...I will take tattoo over corvette lol! I missed you too! I really had so much to catch up on and really took most of the day to do it, still am this is way too late to be up. GOOD NIGHT!~ Debbie

Hi Carol, I am a crystal type girl too! Thanks for the tip on where to buy. Your chandelier and sconces are gorgeous and you know I love the day bed.
I use "word" for my font and you can enlarge it to any size you want. For this sign I printed a few letters at a time and then just taped them together. Hope this helps.
Hugs, Sherry

You are wonderful to give us your secret go to place for crystals. I keep a stash on hand too for various projects but what I want to know is where to get the little wire thingies to hang them from. Not shiny but old looking. xo

Carol, Your chandys are so pretty!! And I love your header!!
I buy crystals from a seller on Ebay but I have to look up the exact name. Will get back to you on that one.
I start to decorate for Christmas on Nov. 1st and try to finish before Thanksgiving Day. I usually take the 3rd week of Nov. off from work to do the Living Room and the Dining Room.

Wonderful blog! Great ideas and I am a bargain hunter and reclaimer too! Love the info about the crystals. Mom is a chandy collector, so I'll let her know, and I am the artist, so I am thrilled! Haven't posted many room/decor pics yet, as I'm new at this, but they are coming. Come by sometime. I'll be back often. Love your "stuff" ! Cindy

Hi Again :-) I was just scrolling down and boy did you save me some time!! I have a couple chandeliers to redo this fall and I needed to shop for crystals! Now I have extra time (I wish)!

OMGoodness! I just love that snowflake on the candelabra. How do you spell candelabra anyway???
....All of these are so lovely, but I especially love the one with the snowflake accent! Last weekend I saw bins of glittery holiday decorations down at Michaels craft store for 50cents...I think you just inspired me to try working those and some crystals on a candleabra. MUCHOS GRACIS :)
Thrift store here I come!
