SQUEE! I only became aware of the So. Cal Bead Shop Hop last year on the last day of the last week of the challenge – talk about 11th hour! Despite that, I was able to get one sticker and that was fun enough to make me keep my eyes peeled for the beginning of this year’s event. For those of my fellow beady peeps, here are the dates:
Friday – Sunday, September 5-7, 12-14, & 19-21.
Hours: Friday – Saturday: 10:00 am * Sunday 12:00 noon – 5:00 pm.
Full of amazing prizes, how many of the 22 participating stores across Southern California can you hit in this mad frenzy of bead-hoarding fun?
The Ears Have It and KC Dragonfly have a tentative, insane plan of attempting to hit all the stores by the last day of the last weekend of the challenge. It’s a lot of driving and we’re going to be lonely if we take on this all by ourselves, so if you are a local beader that wants to broaden your horizons, get inspired and get new beads, come with us! Drop us a line on our Facebook Fan Page (while you’re there, why don’t you Like and Follow our posts?) or email us here. Let’s pack a picnic lunch and get more beads!
The Southern California Bead Shop Hop is sponsored by the BeadSmith and presented by the Southern California Local Bead Store Association.
