We carry all of the supplies that a stained glass hobbyist will require, including:
We typically have about 400 different types of glass in stock with over 500 samples on display in clearly labelled racks. We stock glass from all of the major and minor glass manufacturers from all over the world. These include: Spectrum, Kokomo, Wissmach, Armstrong, Youghiheney, Pilkington, GNA, Oceana, Uroboros, Bullseye, Optimum, plus Gluchip, Mirror, and 2mm float glass.
We also offer rack packs (typically a square foot at around half price) from most manufacturers. The glass in them is not defective, however, the colour or texture is imperfect. Sometimes these imperfections end up being more interesting than the standard issue of the glass!!
We also have a large supply of free Band-Aids! in the unlikely event that you might accidently cut yourself on a piece of glass
Sit down in our lounge and relax while looking through our pattern books. Our book rack usually contains around 200+ different titles at any given time. All of our lamp pattern books are located in the rotating grey metal display unit which is right beside the bookshelf. Mosaic books are on the mosaic mold and Diamondcrete display shelf on the back wall.
Our stained glass pattern books include the following subjects:
- Three Dimensional
- Panel & Windows
One of our top priorities is to sell only those that we would ourselves use in our own practice. If you see it in our tools section, that means that we have tested it, played with it, and liked it.
If you have purchased a tool from us and are having problems, bring it back to the store. We will give you a loaner while it is being repaired or we will replace it. We also stock replacement parts for your tools such as grinder heads and iron tips.
One of the hottest new trends in stained glass is creating your own mosaics. With the release of the DiamondCrete line of pre-coloured, quick-setting, super-smooth concrete, mosaics have never been easier. We stock all twelve colours of DiamondCrete in 10 pound and 25 pound boxes, as well as all the Tiffany Garden and DiamondTech molds that have made their way into Canada.
We carry a wide variety of bevel clusters. We usually have some of Bevel King, and the GST series on the wall in the purple room at any time, with the full line available by special order. Our bevel case, also in the purple room, is full of over 200 stock bevels. There are squares, rectangles, diamonds, triangles, stars, corner pieces, ovals circles and half-circle shapes avaiable. You can also get blue, green and champagne coloured bevels, as well as glu-chip, star-engraved, concave-circle, double-beveled, multi-faceted beveled, and star-beveled bevels in a variety of shapes and sizes. Bevels are cheaper than ever, so check them out for your next project!
We have scrap bins of glass that we sell. It is ideal for those needing just a tiny piece of glass to finish a project, or for doing mosaics. The scrap glass bins flank the white display unit that is in front of the main cutting table in the front room of the store. We also sell strips of glass that are leftovers from various projects, at very cheap prices. These strips are kept at the north end of our large stock glass racks.
We carry a large supply of lamp bases from several different companies. We have sizes from the minis at 5" to large bases at 15+" and floor lamp bases at 50+". If we don't have a particular bases that you want, just ask and we will special order it for you. We also carry a wide range of vase caps and spyders for making lamps, as well as all the finials, harps, and adaptors that you may need to make your lamp just right. If you are doing fan lamps, we carry metal and wood bases, and the light socket cords. We also sell night lights and the clips for attaching stained glass pieces to. We will special order any Worden or Odyssey lamp system patterns, molds, or parts that you require.
We carry a full line of lead, zinc, brass and copper cames for use in stained glass construction. U, H, or Y profile, we should have it in stock or we'll get it for you. We carry the popular hobby lead in 6 and 3 foot lengths. We also stock zipper came. All of our cames are located underneath our main cutting table in the front room.
