Help! Robin & I have started shopping and we can't stop! It goes like this:
We are out of a seed bead color. I log on to order it and all the other ones on the low quantity report. "Ooo, that's a pretty color... and that one... and that one." Next thing you know a few beads turns into a $1000+ order! (Like your little brown bag of crimps that turned into $200 of beads - except bigger!)
Next the phone rings. It's Mr. Chaos (yes - that's really what he calls himself), and he's going to be in the area next week with his giant travelling truck of semi-precious stones. "Well yes, of course we'd like to see you!" He shows up and 2 hours of shopping later, hands covered in bead dust (did you know beads are dirty?) the total is... how much?! Oh my goodness - it didn't seem like that much!
So how many of these special "bead visitors" have we seen in the last month? Well, there was Jon when he was here for the trunk show - had to stock up. Then there was the African guy - yes he's from Africa and so are his beads. Then there was Mr. Chaos, and the guy who called on the phone about the great deal on the new arrivals of semi-precious. Then there was the new arrival deal on Czech glass and E-Beads - 17 Kilos will take a while to tube. And next week Shelly comes to visit with her boxes of Czech & Semi-Precious.... Do you think if I swallowed some beads it would work like a pill to get me to stop? No? Me neither.
So I guess the moral of the story is that you're not alone in your addiction. And, check out the New Arrivals section often. It will take us weeks to get all our new treasures ready for you, so New Arrivals should keep flowing right through Christmas!
