California, here we come...

We are actually here in California, resting after threading through storms at the Siskiyou Summit. We actually drove over the summit (elevation 4,314 feet) at 1 am, and I must say, I am beat! The RV is great, but we are towing a car and about a thousand pounds of beads and metal, so the drive up was slow (and the ride down like a roller coaster you're not sure will ever stop!). Ron has been letting me drive quite a bit (while he naps...not the best co-pilot), but I told him he has to come up with a name for the RV if he wants me to really bond with it. If you have any suggestions...let me know!
More on the Tucson adventure tomorrow...

on the road again...

In less than an hour, we will begin our annual migration to the land of dry heat, rattlesnakes and most importantly, BEADS!!!!!
Yup, the camper is loaded, the sunscreen is on standby and we are outta here! We will be selling and shopping our hearts out and will be back with lots of new goodies on Feb. 16th. Until then, our shop hours will be a bit funky---we'll be closed tomorrow, Jan 29th but open Saturday.

just a reminder...

Just a reminder...we have only received 3 of the new Washington State Reseller's Certificates from customers. If you have a business and are anticipating buying merchandise for resale tax exempt, you must bring in a copy of your reseller's certificate. A resale certificate is no longer valid for tax exempt or wholesale purchases in Washington. For more information, check out the Washington State Department of Revenue website here.

And a Happy New Year it is!

A new decade...pretty amazing. I am always moved by the turning of a new year and this one seems particularly significant. We are happily & busily finishing our tasks from the old year and paving the way for a bright and happy new year.

Everything in the shop is 10% off and the discounts just get better from there! Come by to check out the heaping table of 50% off stones & pearls.
