This past weekend, I met my beady friend
Linda Landig at the
Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma Washington.
I wasn't feeling my best that day but we had a great time just the same!!!
I neglected to take many pictures while I was there but I have lots of beautiful beads to show for it.
It's a good sized show with lots of wonderful booths to shop at.
I picked up some beautiful and unusual goodies.
I spotted these wonderful Carved Coral beads early on from
They were my splurge, we swung around to them after we finished and I picked up a strand,
Linda liked them too so we split them.
Love these rustic beads from Wynwoods Gallery
I got these from Wynwoods too!
They have a store in Port Townsend too, I hope to make it there one day!
Beautiful Glass Beads from Unicorne Beads
love all the beautiful drops!
You know I love discs, I couldn't resist these beauties from
More from Sonoran Beads, look at those Starfish!!
And those 2 in front are actually bead caps!!!
Wish I had more pictures of the actual event but that's the way it goes.
I'm planning to try to be a vendor next year!
I also brought one of my big trays with some of my copper inventory to tempt Linda even more,
when we got back to the parking lot I popped the car hatch
and we had fun going through it all and talking about it all!
We don't get to do that in person very often!
I had a great time with Linda as always
and spending the day looking at beautiful beads is always a good thing!
I'm also having a giveaway at my blog
