If you Clubber's want to save some dough and a trip to Highwater, try getting supplies from Spruce Pine Batch. They have good prices on barium carbonate, soda ash, silica, clay, dolomite, feldspar and some colorants. If anyone has a price list we could post it.
Or just call for prices.
Be sure to give them a days notice and come before 1:00p.m.
