An order for Elizabeth Craft Glitter Ritz will be going in on Friday, October 22. The cost of each jar of glitter is $7.25 and $7.75 for the cool and warm highlights.

Retail on the 60 colors is $645. You need to pay in advance if you are ordering all 60 colors. It will take about 2 weeks to get them into the shop.
