Gardannebeads off Vacation on Wednesday

My shop has been on vacation but I have not, Bead Fest was a blast last weekend. Before I even left town I had dinner plans for Friday and Saturday night and I met many on line customers, fellow artisans, and blog friends face to face. I'm sure you are all caught up with the photos and bead loot of the attendees. 

I considered the show a success I made a little more than last year, but not enough to justify a booth. I missed my Artisan Alley friends and I plan on going back to the 8 foot table next year.

I love being a vendor, but the downside is not getting out and about to see everyone and all their wonderful handmade items. So you will not be seeing any photos or much bead loot from me.

The only thing I did invest in was something that will hopefully add to your choices in my shop. It is called, Now thats a Jig. I hope it will help me make all the wire and chain parts I plan on adding to the shop. I also have on order a bead liner for the big hole beads and a riveting tool I have not used yet. So no more tools allowed until I explore what I already have.

The shop will reopen on Wednesday, probably late, since I have to take a bunch of new photos and write new product descriptions. I will have a coupon code that I will announce on Wednesday here on the blog and facebook.

I have 8 out of town weekend shows between now and Christmas, don't worry the shop will not be on vacation again and I will keep you posted on shipping dates.

Hope to see you on Wednesday, September 4th.

 Just put up my show list on the right side bar for the rest of 2013 I would love to see you please come by and say hello. Don't forget your 10% off coupon at the top of the side bar, make a copy and bring it to the show it will work all weekend, one per customer please.
