Lima is Headed to Tucson!

Posted by Steve on January 27 at 02:49 pm

Lima CactusThe Lima Beads offices will be officially closed from Tuesday (1/31) – Friday (2/3) next week for our annual trip to Tucson for the big gem and jewelry shows. Last year was my first year making the trip, and it was waaaaay bigger than I expected. You can’t possibly prepare yourself for that many beads.

Shipping and Customer Service

During these 4 days, you’ll only be able to reach us by email. A small (and super dedicated) portion of our team is staying behind, so orders will continue to ship, but it may not be as quickly as you’re used to. If you need something urgently in the next week, be sure to place your order by Monday (1/30) and if it’s super time-sensitive, it would be a good idea to choose UPS as your shipping option.

Stay Tuned for an Update

We’ll be sending along an update next week, so stay tuned! Don’t forget, the Crossword Sale ends on 1/31–and watch the blog for an update on the winners of the bonus prizes. Adiós!

    My experience of the Tucson gem show was: heaven – more gorgeous beads than I could imagine, warm(ish) weather, good food, great company… I hope you have an equally great time there. (and many thanks t those holding down the fort at home)

    It’s my first visit to the Tucson shows this year – I’ll keep an eye out for the Lima Beads crew! (Although given the size and number of shows, it’s not likely that I’ll see you!) We’ll be hitting AGTA, GJX, G&LW, 22nd Street, and American Indian among others! Can’t wait – should be lots of fun! Enjoy your trip!
