Get the edge at Rings & Things ’09 bead shows

February 13, 2009

If you’re buying from Rings & Things, you’re already in the know.  We have groovy stock, grand variety and we provide great honest info to back it all up.  We also go the extra mile, or several thousand miles, to give you a competitive edge.

The season is about to begin for Rings & Things’ BeadTour 2009!  We’ll be coming to your area at least once between March and November.  This is your chance to use your insider connection with us and stock up on great new stock that isn’t in our catalog.

That’s right, we’ll bring literally tons of new beads and findings to our bead shows, to help you grow your business.  There will be so much of this “cash & carry” stock that I can’t possibly describe it all!  But I won’t tease you either (much)–here’s a photo album of some neat beads we’re bringing your way.

Can’t get enough eye candy?  Pictures of popular items from our recent Fall ’08 bead shows will give you an idea how quickly we rotate cool new beads into stock.  (Warning: I took most of these, so they’re not as pro as Val’s photos above.) 🙂

    Wow!! So many beads!! Do you plan on selling cabochons also? The reason I am asking is, I made my first ever tutorial :-)). Its for a wire prong ring. And I thought giving the link to a shop where people can get all the materials required would be great. You have everything I have listed, but I can’t find cabochons or faceted stones for setting in my ring. Let me know if you have them.

    Thanks,
    Swati

    Thanks Emilyclairecreations!

    Swati, we often have cabochon-shaped stones, but they’ll be beads. All of our rocks have holes in them. 🙂 I’m not too sure you can use cabochon beads in your wire-wrapping… But I look forward to seeing your tutorial!

    Now Dave!! Is it really necessary to tease us about the bead shows!! You know, some people have over 60 days until the show gets into their area! LOL…

    Do you go to all the shows?

    Hi RCC, I can’t believe it but our first Spring bead show is less than 2 weeks away! I’ll be there (it’s our Spokane show, I can’t escape LOL)…. And I go to all the Rings & Things shows that I can around the country. But not all, yet.

    Maybe I should live-blog some of our bead shows??

    I hope I can make the Sacramento show… wish you were coming to San Jose, but I couldn’t find a date on the list. Hey, Dave! Will you be at the show in Sacramento?

  • Reply Dave February 19, 2009 at 8:14 am

    Hi Dawno, I see Sacto & San Mateo on the BeadTour schedule…so Sacramento is closer to you? I am scheduled to work at that show, so come say hi!

    I’m just wondering what type of price range you have for your beading? If it is within good prices I will be there at the Chicago show in September… Looking forward to finding out!!!

  • Reply Dave August 12, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Hi Christina, the bead prices at our BeadTour shows are 15% off wholesale. So they’re even lower than our catalog/website prices. Well worth it, as a number of happy customers have noted!
