Trunk Show Going Strong

Hope everyone has been enjoying this beautiful weather! This time of year is one of my favorites. I can keep the shop door open to get some of that fresh air as I bead and work in the shop. Folks have been coming in to shop the Trunk Show for gifts and planning new projects. I spoke to the vendor today and got a weeks extension on the show; so it will be here through the 5th of November.

Also a reminder that the shop will be closed this Saturday. I will be back in on Tuesday morning. Cyn is supposed to be back on Halloween.

Trunk Show

The first few days of this trunk show have been great. Granted, some of the pieces are priced higher but there are plenty of items in the low and median prices. The pearls are in all colors but they are going fast. Southern ladies love their pearls.

Lots of new folks have been stopping in. Beading is still going strong here! I can't wait to have some time to get a new project started. I want to do some metal work with copper and plan a stamping class soon. Anyone interested?

Will be closed the 29 of October

I hate to have to close on a Saturday but something has come up. The shop will only be closed the one day but I hate it is Saturday!. The Trunk show is up and ready for shoppers today and will be here for two weeks. I already see things I want. This show makes mixing and matching easier as it is set up in color groups. Come on in soon!

They finally arrived! This is a new vendor and they sent lots of beads and pearls. The beads are arranged in color groups to help mix and match for your projects. There is a lot of variety in the pendant selection too! I just couldn't believe all the colors and choices. Come on in and check out the show! It will only be here for two weeks!!!!

About Me

My photo
Montgomery, Alabama, United States
I've always loved jewelry and sparkly things, so when my life took a change I began considering my own shop. I started Highstrung Beads in January of 2003 and it is still going strong. The shop is now at it's third location and better than ever. I try to keep a selection of unusual items, pendants, and lots of gemstone as well as the standard bead items. I wish I could have even more beads in the shop, just like other bead lovers, there is never enough!!
