What are all those stacked-up beads?

October 19, 2009

Something you might see at Rings & Things bead shows

Stacks of bead “shopping trays” spontaneously appear at our shows.  (These are action photos taken by cell phone…)

Helping several customers at a time...

Mysterious bead stacks...

Been to our bead shows?  Know what these are all about? 🙂

Waiting for checkout

...made by aliens?

If you have a theory, we’d be interested to hear it…leave a comment!

    I know! That is left by those who bite off more than they can chew….or more than they can afford! It is tempting to pile on strand after strand at a Rings & Thing bead show, but oy! What a headache for those who have to sort through all that…. be kind and don’t horde, there is plenty to go around at the Rings & Things show…honest!
    Thanks for sharing Dave!
    Enjoy the day!

    I’ll bet Erin is correct! Someone’s eyes were larger than their bead budget. Either that or their hubby/child was ready to get out of there.

    I’d be glad to take them off your hands so you don’t have to do all that sorting. Just ship them as they are and then they’ll be out of your way!

    It’s true that most of these stacks disappear by the end of our bead show – – people show up at the checkout with several trays full of beads 🙂
