Default Having problems finding tumbled tiles...

I did some coasters last year that were a big hit and I would like to do more again. However, I'm having a really hard time finding the ones I used. I've gone to both Lowes and Home Depot and can't seem to find the Bottochino or Botticello tiles I used. The only ones they have are Chiaro or Noce and they are really pitted making it sort of impossible to stamp on. Anyone else having a problem finding these?

I haven't looked recently but I have heard of some people having trouble finding them. It seems to go in spurts. Check with the people at Lowes & Home Depot in charge of the tiles and see if they know if and when they're going to get anymore in. Sometimes they'll call to another store to see if anyone else has them in stock. Worth a try (as long as the people at your stores are more knowledgeable and helpful than my local stores are!)

I just got some at Menard's last week. They were even on sale. I hope they are not closing them out. There were a few that had the corners broken but they were so cheap I just threw those away. If you have a Menard's, check it out.
