Beads, beads and more beads

Some friends and I went in together and did a bead order from Fire Mountain Gems. I spent a little bit of  money and got some really nice beads. Wendy, Mary Kay and I met on Monday for a great sort of the order. What a blast. We met at a Panera and had bead packages laying all over the place.

Well, apparently that wasn't enough for me. There is a bead store in Carlisle PA that is closing and last week I learned that they had everything marked down 60% off. So of course last Wednesday I took a ride up there and the store was closed. I thought "OK God, You are trying to tell me that I don't need any more beads"
So Shawn and I were talking and I told him about the store. We agreed that I wouldn't be able to rest if I didn't drive back up there and at least take a look.

So yesterday, I drove up there with my neice. Imagine my delight when we pulled up and the sign in the window said everything is 80% off. Woo Hoo. I went a little crazy. I couldn't help myself. She had a ton of Delica beads and I bought a ton of Delica beads. I picked up some crystals, some other beads and findings and I even treated myself to some 24K gold Delica's. 15 grams for $5.00.

Today I'm in bead overload. I now have to sort, seperate and store all of these beads.

So I'm going to call next Tuesday and see if she is going to mark her inventory down to 90% off since she's closing her doors for good at the end of this month. If so, I'm off to Carlisle PA again.


  1. That's DISGRACEFUL. Why on earth don't I live near you so I can go to the bead store. I am sooooo green with jealousy you won't see me if I go out in the garden. You lucky, lucky lass.

  2. LOL. I'm sorry Jane. If they go down to 90% off, I'm going to buy them out of Delicas. I will have to send you some.
