    A good online-store for paint brushes?

    I've been browsing the brushes at trekell.com for ages, and today I finally got enough money to order a 12 Piece Red Sable Filbert Set. The site came reccomended by William Whitaker (http://www.williamwhitaker.com). But now i've just noticed that they don't ship to England. ;_;

    I'm posting this to ask anybody if they know of a reliable online-store that provides good quality fine art brushes, and who also ship to England?

    Thanks.

    P.S A good store for acrylic paints would also be great, but i'm more in need of some good brushes.

    Dick Blick ships internationally.

    I think they even have a few sets of red sable filberts, but I can't seem to find a pack of 12.

    Unfortunately I haven't.
    I've ordered from there before for my ink needs, but haven't gotten around to needing a new brush since I've found it.

    If your nervous about the quality, go for the name brand brushes.
    Da Vinci, Raphael and Isabey are some notable name brands you might want to look into.

    Ok, cheers Zilant. I almost went ahead with ordering from that site but they wouldn't tell me what the shipping cost will be until a few days after the order, so I opted out. I found a nice place over at saa.co.uk and ordered 11 da vinci filberts that you reccomended £65.. haha, i'm happy but it looks like i'm gonna be spending quite a few weekends in for smoe time.
