BEAD SALE & TRUNK SHOW - Thurs, Sept 1-Sun, Sept 4

We're having a bead sale starting this Thursday, September 1! All beads will be on sale at 20% off. If you haven't been in the store this past month, we have been busily putting out our huge shipment of freshwater pearls and semi-precious gemstones. It's worth checking out. And don't forget to stop by the Silk Road Treasures Trunk show. As always, Ahmad will have lovely unique treasures from Afghanistan. The sale and the trunk show ends Sunday, September 4.

BEAD SHOP HOP -- two weekends in September

The Bead Shop Hop is coming up! "What is it?," you ask. It is an opportunity to visit local bead stores in Southern California. Held over specially designated weekends, you visit bead stores and get freebies and check out their stores and events and possibly do some shopping as well. Then you visit the next store. At each store, you have your passport and you get it stamped. The more stores you visit and the more stamps you collect, you may be entered into special raffles for prizes. Prizes are distributed according to stamps collected per region (there are 3 regions) or if you're super adventurous, for visiting all the participatiing bead stores in Southern California. Visit the San Gabriel Bead Company for this detailed information about the shop hop. You may want to plan your route ahead of time! The Bead Shop Hop is happening over two weekends in September, from Thursday-Sunday of September 8-11 and 15-18.
