Doors open at Nomad!

Hello, everyone, Catherine here.

We're open again, at last! It's really nice to see some customers again, although I'm not in the store much. The kids won't let me come in as much as I'd like, because statistically I'm old.
I want to tell you all we appreciate your helping us keep everyone safe by wearing your masks and using the hand sanitizer! It seems that people are being sensible and not going out much. It sure is strange to see so few cars downtown - first time in years it's been so easy to find a parking space on Walnut Street.

Please remember that even if you don't want to go out and go nuts shopping, we're happy to shop on your behalf. Just give us a call or drop Margot a note at and we will be happy to hunt things down for you.

While we were getting ready to open up last week, I cleaned out the space behind my desk - something I never thought I'd get around to. Many interesting items were discovered, and we're beginning to get them tagged and out. We have bargains, people, bargains!
We have a large quantity of gold colored findings in cast pewter, lots of spacer beads and Bali styles, which are out at $.50/bag.
All the tubes of Japanese seed beads previously under the tables are going out at 25% off the marked price. You can find them on the front table.

Our new kits are all out on the front table as well. Want a speedy project without a lot of browsing? These will feed your need to bead. We have rosary kits, stretch bracelet kits, mala kits and lots of kid's kits.

Any purchase of $100 or more from Nomad will receive a discount of 20% off the total price. This applies to both online and in-person sales.


Margot will continue to do her online open table on Saturday mornings, at 11am. We think it better at this time to do our classes via Zoom rather than at the table with masks on. We may change our mind about this as we go along, but wish to be cautious and protect our staff as well as our customers.

Next week, Saturday 5/23, Margot will be diverting a bit from the usual and hosting a discussion on how to pick out the good stuff.

Most of the materials used for cutting beads are semi-precious, some are downright obscure, and the differences in how and where the beads are cut can influence how they can be used. Ultimately most jewelers just roll with what they think is pretty, but why is this sunstone so much more expensive than that sunstone? What's the difference between India-cut beads and China-cut beads, and why does it matter?

We are looking forward to a fun discussion - please check it out!

Attendees who are using their phones or tablets will need to download the Zoom app (you want the one with the blue camera icon, Zoom Cloud Meetings).
