Just wondering: Did OA quit making Sprinklers? I don't have a lot of them, but I like them better than Glimmer Mists. Haven't noticed any for awhile and there don't seem to be many in the store here. Thanks. Maria

I haven't been able to find the ones from the last round of releases. The places I've seen them listed haven't actually been in stock -- and I was told they were backordered.

I also have a hard time finding them available individually. I prefer to buy them as singles rather than in the pack of three, because I usually only want one or two colours from each set, and they are too expensive to just buy all three.

They made a blog post a month or so back that said the company that manufactured the Sprinklers for them closed. They are trying to acquire another source for them.

There were no sprinklers available for the last couple of OA lines. The manufacturing firm we used to provide the ink for our sprinklers unexpectedly and without warning went out of business and did so without filling our order, which had been placed with them just weeks prior to the closing. At this time October Afternoon is in discussions with other manufacturers who may be able to provide this product for our future lines.

^^^^^^^^^^

Thanks Andrea I was wondering about these since GG uses them a lot. I have never heard nor seen them since I watched her videos and was trying to find them. The company closing explains a lot on why I couldn't find them.

Thank you all for your responses and the explanation for them being absent. I thought I had a dk. brown one from here but can't find it and ended up buying a Mr.Huey dk.brown which I don't like nearly as well. Hope OA can find another USA mfg who does as good a job as the first one. Thanks again everyone. Maria

I hope they find someone else also! I only have 1 sprinkler, but I do love the saturation of the color of it!

Wow, that is too bad! I read the OA blog but must have missed that post.
I do really like their Sprinklers, they are a great formula. I hope they can find a new manufacturer that will do the same good job!

Thank you for this information. I didn't know that there never were any sprinklers for the last collections. I've been looking for them. I too must have missed that blog post...

I'm only posting b/c Two Peas doesn't have them...but if you search the Scrapbook Steals archive site, they have some. Also, check the individual OA listings within the archives, as sometimes the Sprinklers are mixed in there too.

I only oredered sprinklers one time and what a mess!! All three bottles leaked and never sprayed correctly. I hate to throw them out because they cost alot of money (IMO) but they are of no use to me and are all wrapped up in a plastic bag. YUK

Thanks Jennifer - I did check here and the color (dk.brown) I need isn't in. I meant to order it before (thought I did), but if I did I can't find it. (If you saw my work area, you wouldn't find this hard to believe.) Thanks again to everyone for their help. Let's hope OA can get a new supplier and start cranking these out again. Maria

Thanks for the PeachyCheap info - I'd not heard of them. Just trying to decide if I'd use more than a couple of those colors. Thanks again. Maria

thank you for posting the info about the PeachyCheap deal; I just bought them, and am excited! (well, sad, too, about OA having to find another mfr, but excited that I'm getting some new Sprinklers in the meantime!!)

Thanks for the info on peachycheap, just ordered my set! I have never used OA sprinklers and I had ordered a bunch from the scrap yard yesterday and will get them tomorrow. I have fallen in love with sprays and inks here lately and have heard good things about these sprinklers and of course now they are hard to find!
