Fall Beads Upon Us!Posted by Kevin on September 25 at 01:21 pm
Each year about this time, our fall lineup of beads starts to trickle in. Don the UPS guy pulls up in his truck and beeps the horn. We all run down to help him unload the boxes. In the past week, we’ve unloaded about 50 boxes that average 60 pounds each. Steve, Matt, and I carry all the boxes up the stairs (22 stairs to be exact!) and line them up in the hallway.
Once the boxes are upstairs, we can’t wait to tear them open and see all the new stones! This fall is going to be awesome. We’ve got a lot of gorgeous new beads that are brand new to the market. We also have additions to some popular stones, including high quality fluorite, labradorite, garnet, rhodochrosite and more.
The stones you’ll see at Lima Beads this fall are all cut from very high-grade material. We’ve worked out some deals that I’m very proud of. You’ll see beads that are near jewelry-grade quality and the prices will allow you to use them in your designs without worrying about cost. Wait until you see the fluorite next week – it’s absolutely incredible and you won’t believe the prices!
I’m also really excited about our new line of natural Madagascar rose quartz. As you know, most rose quartz is heat treated to give it a consistent pink color. This rose quartz is 100% natural. It has a deep, translucent feel and the color is incredible!
We’ll be adding new beads every week through November and you won’t want to miss any of them. Be sure to bookmark The Fresh Daily Blog so you can keep up with everything we do this fall.
Thanks for reading everyone! I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
