Tips on best place to buy 1x1 plates?
I'm wanting to get into mosaic building but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'd like to get a pile of 1x1 plates to start playing around with but the best price I can find is 10 cents on lego site or about 7 cents on bricklink. I'm wanting black/white/grey/red to start with (got some SW mosaics in mind to start on) but I assume rarer colors will get more expensive and harder to find in bulk.
I know every other piece I can use larger than a 1x1 is a better price/stud ratio but 1x1's will always be needed.
I called the nearest lego store and they won't sell full boxes anymore. Sad I missed out on that opportunity. I think a full box was about 6k 1x1's for 70-80 bucks? Is there any place to get them closer to that price these days? Anybody have any stores near them with 1x1's on the wall?
I browsed ebay but didn't see much better than bricklink and I've always been a little afraid of getting ripped off (knockoff or badly used) on ebay but maybe I shouldn't be. Bricklink hasn't burned me yet so I'll just keep looking there unless somebody has better advice for me.
