Bead Tour
Even though I live in the same city where Rings & Things lives (lucky me-hehe...), I still love going to their bead show! Only 32 more days [yes, I'm corny & counting the days-LOL] until I get to stroll from table to table to table looking and fondling [and probably a lil drooling too] at all the hundreds and hundreds of beads, gemstones, pearls, crystals and findings. I can't wait!!! They always have demos going on too, and those are cool to watch. I'm always up for learning new techniques. ;-) 
If you've never been to one of their shows, don't worry, they will point you in the right direction. No need to bring anything to hold your treasures while you shop, they have lots of trays on hand for that. I always make sure to take my calculater, and I leave my purse at home. All you need is your credit card and lots of energy to shop till you drop! LOL! Oh, you will need your invitation too. If you don't get one in the mail, you can email them to send you one or request your invitation on the Bead Tour Page You can check that same page to see if Rings & Things will be in your town or at a town near you. If you live in or close to Spokane or Spokane Valley WA, they will be at the "Mirabeau Hotel" in the Valley on Sunday, October 9th - 11am to 4pm. Maybe I'll see you there! I'll be the one with a big smile on my face...no wait, that will be everyone!! :- D  ;-P

Have fun at the bead show. I went last year in the Boston area and loved it!!!! It is so much more fun to shop in person than online. This year they are coming to a town that is too far for me. Hopefully next year they will be closer by! ~Val

Thanx Val! I agree..shopping in person really is more fun! I enjoy meeting other beaders and crafters at the shows too. I'm sorry you won't be going this time around, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to go next year. ♥
