Roll up, Roll up! Wilkommen, Bienvenue and Welcome to my newest venture....The Curious Bead Shop!
For some time now, I have had a little image in my head, of a tiny, old-fashioned shop. One that has a bell on the door when someone enters, and lots of dark wood, and painted white floorboards. Where I have a seat by the window, and that window looks out onto a windswept bay, all the colours of the sea and sand appearing outside my window, changing throughout the year. One where I can sell beautiful handmade beads and components, czech glass in rich, saturated colours, and beautiful cords and ribbons in all hues of the rainbow.
Well, today - 22nd November 2012 - I took one step towards this image. I don't know if this image will ever come true quite how I envisage it now, perhaps it will always remain a virtual space....but I am excited to announce that The Curious Bead Shop has now opened. I have plans for handmade findings and enamelled components (look out early 2013!) to add to my very select bead selection. And I am excited that I am one of the first Uk sellers to be stocking waxed linen cord - one of the first sellers in Europe I believe! (Another UK shop soon to be selling waxed linen cord, and a slightly different selection to me is long-time favourite bead shop of mine, Smitten Beads. Please do take a minute to check out Claire's bead emporium! She has quite the eye for style and colour...) I am not only stocking 4ply waxed linen cord, but also 2ply and soon to come, 7ply.
So why not take a peek? I will be adding more goodies all weekend, and up until Monday morning, you can take advantage of my opening discount coupon - ROLLUP10 for 10% off all purchases. (And if I add some beads or cord that you just can't resist after you've made a purchase, no worries - I will refund your postage with any further purchases over the weekend.)
