    Thanks, Lorrie! This is why I needed all those silver rounds. I love that silver bead. I bought all the website had left when they were selling out.

    Thank you so much everyone!
    The “pearls” were $10 for about 5 feet, marked down from $50. Remember, this is a department store, so I wonder if anyone ever really paid that price. I also got a coppery strand. I’m getting plenty of mileage out of both!

    Gorgeous set Jeanne, I love love it!!! What a great find on the pearls way to go! Have you decided if you are going to do the girls night out show? I looked it up and it looks like alot of fun and a lot of customers! But it is a high price!

    Thank you, Beth!!!

    I posted an update on the fresh pick – After much stress all day yesterday, I decided not to do it this year. I had too much to do in a very short time. I’m pretty sure I want to do it next year, but then I’ll have time to prepare.
    Thanks for asking.

    Green Eyed Lady Chick says:

    Jeanne that sounds like a good idea, then you can also save up for the fee and won’t hurt the budget so much!

    exactly Beth ~ they’re going to have a comp ticket for me. I’m so afraid I’ll go and be upset I don’t have a booth. But I think it’ll be good to scope out the clientele and the competition.

    thank you, Alice!
    I had someone interested in this piece at a fair. But she wanted earrings. So I whipped up earrings and she went to get money and she never came back :(
    so frustrating…

    Beautiful … love the disc beads. You’re the second person who has talked about getting beads from the sale bin at a department store. I’m going to have to start checking mine. Seems like a great source.
