Giving Thanks for the "LBS" (local bead store)
After I wrap up the last hour of beading, I want to give thanks for the local bead store. If it weren't for those who take the time to count, weigh, bag and tag all those millions of tiny and not so tiny beads, findings and supplies, I wouldn't be able to run across town for an absolutely necessary article to finish a design at the last minute. So I raise my glass to the owners, managers and faithful employees of my local bead stores, Off the Beading Path, Star's Beads, Beads Ltd., Beads on Parade and several others along the I-95 corridor from Baltimore, MD to Richmond, VA. Thank you all, keep up your stock and I'll see you very soon !
