I've checked out thehead shopnear me and didn't see anything. I really don't feel like going all over town to every head shop to find a bead lol.
I may not buy shirts or earrings from the dollar store. But I do buy pencils, containers, small things, hair ties,envelopes, cards, wrapping paper, art supplies, olives, etc. at the dollar store. Whenever I need a normal thing that I don't want to pay tons for, I go there. For normal plastic beads, I'll go there, or to the store up the street that sells random hair/body supplies. Or toMicheal's,their beads probably aren't dirt cheap, but they're probably not handcrafted either.
But when I buy more decorative beads I'll go to Etsy, I already have my eye on a few I'm not looking for quality right now,I'm looking forfunctionality,but when I go for quality I know I'll spend money. I need beads that I can lose right now.I support artists and the handcrafted movement, but I can't buy that stuff in bulk, especially if I might lose it.

I know people like going cheap...
but...why do you want to put cheap in your hair?
Yes....you might spend 10-20 bucks or more on a bead....but...do you buy your underwear at the dollar store too?
Do you buy your earrings and your shirts and pants there?
Head shops are places to find glass beads.
Glass blowers come in to sell their wares!
Art costs money.
