Over three consecutive weekends — September 5-7, 12-14, and 19-21 — the Southern California Local Bead Store Association has a lot up its proverbial sleeves for you during the annual Bead Shop Hop! Get a passport at your first local bead store and hop at least three stores to be eligible to win a prize. At your third store hopped, you will receive a charm bracelet on which you will hang charms from each store you hop.
Will be having refreshments, games, special trunk shows and make ‘n’ takes (samples pictured at right) according to our book theme (secret until this Friday).
