What's new at Bead Gallery....

Bead Gallery is so excited the Bead Shop Hop is finally here!!  Starting this Friday, September 7th, we are participating in our 3rd annual Bead Shop Hop sponsored by SCLBSA (Southern California Local Bead Store Association).  We can’t wait to see our customer’s faces as they walk into our store and see the transformation.  If you have never participated in a Bead Shop Hop before, this is a great year to start.  This year there is a movie theme and without giving away our selected movie, you’ll just have to stop by the store and see it for yourself!   We will be offering goody bags to anyone who makes a $15.00 purchase, plus lots of raffles and prizes just for stopping by.

Also, just in time for the Bead Shop Hop, we have ALL Czech glass beads on sale for 20% off and we just received a new shipment of more Czech Beads today.  We have a semi-precious trunk show going on now that’s worth checking out as well.  We’ll have free demo’s and several free classes available throughout the month.   Check out our Facebook page for updates on the free classes.

This year is significant for our store.  In December we will celebrate our 10th anniversary! Once we have the Bead Shop Hop behind us we will begin planning the celebration festivities for this awesome accomplishment.  We hope you will join us for that. Keep any eye open for upcoming events to celebrate this milestone with us. Check out our website, join our email list and like us on Facebook for the latest updates on our store.

The SCLBSA San Diego region participated in a “Beaders Give Back” craft donation drive. We collectively received beads, craft supplies, monetary donations as well as new items on the “Wish List” from The Polinsky Children’s Center of San Diego.  We had an unbelievable response from so many of our wonderful giving customers. Thank you to all our customers who gave from the heart.   Many of them brought in bag loads of craft supplies, fabric, buttons, beads, new products and many NEW items from the “Wish List”.

Several of our San Diego Bead Shops prepared jewelry making projects for the Children of Polinsky’s Center.  These prepared kits included projects that can be easily made by the children, giving them a fun project and building some craft skills that could hopefully take their minds off the tough situations they are in. We hope to make this an annual giving back event each year.
