First a BIG, BIG thank you to everyone in Boise and elsewhere for another great year. We are almost 30 years old - so to celebrate - and to thank all of you - a SALE starting Wednesday through December 20th. Our entire Czech wall will be 30% off, also our Czech daggers big and small (not two hole ones), our new wall of Czech flowers and all the Czech leaves.
This would be a great time to buy beads for your beading friends. And for your non-beading friends that are thinking of becoming beaders - how about a gift certificate for a class. You could even take a class with them. What a great way to spend time with your friends - and extend the giving season into 2015. We also have some free patterns available (with the purchase of beads) that would be a great gift as well.
Classes: Have not had time to update December schedule as yet - but this Saturday, Sandy is teaching a new bracelet pattern designed by Marsha Balonis. A couple of seats still available.
Also this Saturday, Beth is teaching "Color your World" a fabulous metal coloring earring project. Come in and see the samples in person - beautiful!
New beads in and unpacked: 2mm Czech Pearls, Miyuki 6/0 Baroque Pearls, short strands of gemstones still available (they were a big hit at our gemstone trunk show), fabulous new clasps (some we found in Paris), rhinestone cup chain and some great new colors in Czech pinch beads. These are going fast - selling them before I can even get them tagged.
New employee: We want to welcome Beth to our Bead Street family. She has been teaching here for some time but now will be here during the week as well. She brings mixed media skills and wire, resin and gemstone expertise to our family. She will also hold down the fort when Sue, Sandy and I leave for a weeks worth of enameling and lamp working classes in the new year.
