You can get to the site by going to or  (If you have previously "book marked" our site in your web browser you might have to delete that book mark and  add the new one.)  We have added this new logo for the business and hope you like it as much as we do!!

Down to the wire on Main Street

Saturday is the last day of our Main Street store.  There are still lots of goodies to purchase on sale, but we have also packed up and moved many products out.  We are tired and sore but still moving.
We have had some very nice people come in to make their purchases and wish us well with our new online venture.  We appreciate all of your kind thoughts and good wishes, thank you.  Bead "N" Chat was very heart warming last night during our wonderful celebration of new beginnings.

Magical Findings and Stinky Stellar

Bead Society of NH was fun today, there was a $5 bead swap, which everyone enjoyed. I demonstrated a new Magical Crimping Tool and Magical Findings, then sold the 3 that I brought. It makes stringing multi-strand pieces a snap! I'll have more at the BSNH retreat in April, let me know if you would like one so that I'm sure to have enough.

Okay, now I know spring is near. The baby of our family is an 11 month old miniature horse. When I greet her I usually say "Hi Sweet Stellar".  I'm now calling her STINKY STELLAR, she evidently played with one of those striped "black and white kitties"! PHEW!

David and I have exciting news to share, we have decided to make a change in our lives by moving our store to the web. We will use our same website - and add a shopping cart to it.  We will carry most of the same products and since we won't have the overhead, most will be at a lower cost.  We will  be up and running in April, but for right now stock is 10% to 50% OFF!!!  This is a GREAT DEAL.  We are cleaning out our back stock and bringing things up from the basement including silver, gold, copper and black colored jump rings for chain maille at 50% OFF!!!  After 21 years there are A LOT of TREASURES.  Please TELL ALL of your beading friends, carpool with them.and make a day of fun.  We're looking forward to seeing you!
