Bead Trades at Recent Tucson Show…

I mentioned that I traded some beads at the most recent Tucson show. Here are a couple of them:

This one was from Andy Ray’s display…I think his son made it:

I traded my favorite bead of all time for it.

The other was with Josh Hamra. Actually, his significant other put him on the chopping block after I commented on the pendant she was wearing that was one of his.

Come to find out, they live in the next town over. For this bead I traded one of my new clear based pendants.

Ten Buck Sale…

Regarding yesterday’s post and all those beads that I showed…did you know that I’ve been having Ten Buck sales?  Two so far in the last month.  All those beads you saw in yesterday’s post?  I’ve been listing them on my site slowly but surely for $9.99 each.

Why didn’t you know about this?  Because you probably aren’t on my mailing list. (subscribe over there on the left).  I email immediately when I’m done posting them.  Yes, the link to the Ten Buck sale is there on my site under “catalog by style” but they have been flying out the door as soon as my email goes out so there isn’t much left for the casual browser.

I have been so busy that my newsletter hasn’t been weekly and it hasn’t been much of a newsletter so rest assured, you won’t be spammed and you can unsubscribe any time you like.  I hope to see you there!
