Yes, we survived the deluge!

Hey everyone! Many thanks for all your concern and good wishes. We’re doing fine at the shop. The worst we had to deal with was a rush of silt under the back door, which made for some very nasty puddles and a full day of cleanup, but we are pretty much back to normal at this point. No one suffered a flooded basement at home. All in all we’ve been very lucky, and are most grateful.

That said, what we HAVE lost is most of a week’s worth of business, so we are hosting a Clear Skies Sale! 

10% off everything in the store (excluding classes and repairs, sorry!) between 9/18 and 9/25!

Please come in, cure your stir-craziness and support your favorite local bead store.

We’ve also got October classes listed, and we’ll be hosting Heidi Kummli for a full weekend starting 10/14. She will be teaching both a pendant and a bracelet class, and will be bringing in some of her best finished stuff for a trunk show.

Voices of the Stones trunk show 9/7-9/8

One of our favorite events is rolling in this weekend: Carole and Mary of Voices of the Stones will be here, along with their amazing dog Emma and an entire truckload of beautiful jewels, pearls, crystal and other goodies.

Carole and Mary have a skilled eye for the lovely and unusual. Their stock generally includes everything from $1.50 crystal beads to a $900 strand of sapphires we’ve been drooling over since we first saw it.

Prices are as marked, and generally end up about 30% less than Nomad retail, so there are some amazing deals here! If you’ve got the time we encourage you to come by. We always have a blast and hope you will too.
