September bead shows - retail and wholesale

I got an email the other day from Megan of Omega Gems letting me know she is going to be at the bead show here in town over the weekend.

*cue Mormon tabernacle choir*

September has to be the BIGGEST month for bead shows - there are a ton of them, and I am going to give them to you now!!!

If you can't make it to one of these shows, never fear! Great Labor Day sales are going on right now, even as you are reading this!! Stop by and see some of my favorites sites and enjoy the great savings they have to offer -

ArtBeads is killing me with a store wide 20% sale for newsletter subscribers - what!?!?! you haven't subscribed yet?!! *puts on mom voice and wags finger* What am I gonna do with you!! Sign up here!

Rings & Things is having a great close out on select CRYSTALLIZED™ items savings from 25% to 75% - what are you waiting for?!!?

Sedona Stones has some beautiful stones on clearance, great fall colors!

BeadinPath has a great selection of items some discounted up to 50%! The only place to get your Lucite fix!

Hope you have a great weekend, and if there is a bead show in your area - GO!!! it is such an experience to be able to see and feel your choices and not look at them on your monitor. It can make you buy more too, so be careful kids!!
