Depending on where you are in the World, there are many vendors that will deliver to you if you don't live near a juggling shop (which most people don't).

A list of them by country can be found at http://www.jugglingdb.com/vendors to find one near you.  Kite shops and extreme sport stores also stock juggling equipment most of the time.  Most UK people shop at Firetoys, Butterfingers or Oddballs.  US customers go to Juggling Store, Dube or Extreme Spin I think.

All good, all similar prices.  And if you go to a juggling club near you HERE then they may bunch together and do a group order which can get you significant discounts (like I do).

Personally i use firetoys . has a strong range of henries babache and some others, plus loads of other juggling stuff.

Dont know if theres already a thread grouping online stores, but did spot this http://www.jugglingdb.com/vendors/[/url]
If you see me please feel free to come over and give me some advice. Thanks in advance.

I use red and black circus's, wear to much black and will be at the BJC.

Thanks Chiok, that was summed up nicely. I may add some of that to the equipment sticky if you don't mind.

I added a quick link to the IJDb vendor site in the sticky. So as not to reinvent the wheel, there probably is not much point to listing shops here. We do have a rather diverse member base after all.

Mi casa es su casa and you're the Admin *all hail the Admin".  It's probably not a bad idea to put vendors link into the equipment sticky as people always like to know where to get props.  Quite surprised someone would go to Ebay to buy their props.  Though often a search through Google will be available for sale on Ebay, like atmosphere...

so far i've bought diabolos from the Klutz Store (palo alto, CA), higginsbrothers.com, and firetoys. there are tons of shops, if you have the internet, you have access to a world of juggling ;)

that's because they dont sell diabolos on the internet. you have to actually go into the store to get them. they sell Henry's Circus and Beach.

they have two types of (i believe Henry's brand) wooden handsticks. they don't sell MB diabolos.

the only diabolo equipment there is:

two types of henry's wooden handsticks
Henry's Circus
Henry's Beach
Spintastics Spinabolo (with handsticks)

It seems like allmost all of you guys order your diabolos from somewhere.
I guess I'm quite lucky because there is nice little shop in my town that sells all kinds of juggling equipment. I've bought all my diabolo stuff from there, it is also easy to ask them to order something if they dont have what I want at the moment.

I get my equipment from the same shop as tommi and dalezilla. It certainly is good to be a "juggler" in Kuopio.

I get my diabolo equipment from the same shop. I think its truly pretty good and easy to be a "juggler" in Kuopio, but there is just that one shop in Kuopio for juggling equipment so there is no challenger for that shop.

They were great for me, real fast shipping too.  They take pay-pal if you have it.

If you email and just ask for what you want they will sort it out.  I didn't use the shopping cart at all and I got the 3 purple Diabigs that I wanted in less than a week.

you should just stick with firetoys because firetoys are way more reliable, cheaper and have a WAYYY bigger range that Juggleart-just look in jugglearts "diabolo parts" section -there selling henrys white per the metre for $1.25 (around $2.80US)
