We hope you like television, because this year’s theme for the Hop is TV Shows. So get your beaded thinking caps on and come down to the store to pick up your official Bead Shop Hop Passport and Guide!
Last year the SCLBSA gave away nearly 200 prizes worth over $11,000 and this year will be even bigger.
If this will be your first Bead Shop Hop or you’re just not familiar with how it works, here’s a primer:
The dates of the Hop are: September 11-13, 18-20, 25-27. Stores will be open from Fridays through Saturdays 10am–7pm and Sundays from Noon–5pm. Check stores for extended hours during the Hop. Our store will be open later than Hop hours on Saturdays (until 9 p.m.) and Sundays (until 6 p.m.).
Get a group together, plan your route, pick up a passport, and start hoppin’!
You’ll be entertained with “tv show” themed shops that will welcome you with special promotions, trunk shows, make ‘n’ takes, refreshments, and possibly more.
Each store will give away a FREE charm that reflects their tv show theme. Visit three stores and receive a FREE Bead Shop Hop charm and bracelet to attach all of your charms along the way. Complete all 20 stores and receive a very special Bead Shop Hop “finisher” charm. Show that charm off every year with pride and say “I DID IT!”
