New Beads Added on Wednesday!

I had my first bead vendor come and sell me beads!  His name was Tony and he drove a tagged van full of beads across the US from New York State. 
I'll be putting new copper, Czech glass, and silver bead caps into the store on Wednesday. 
Hopefully I will be able to scan them (scanner acting up) and post them here later today.  I purchased table cut Czech beads, some fire polish 3mm, and 6mm rondels. In copper I have a some toggles, large focals and a small selection of regular shapes. 
Come on in and see what's new.  Through out the fall I will have new merchandise every week.  Add a comment and let me know what you would like to see on the island in beads and crafts supplies.
Work shop sign ups coming soon!
