We’re always working hard to bring you wonderful beads. Here’s a hint you won’t get from any other bead supplier:
Dig the beads!
Literally. Most towns have older areas where nobody lives (anymore). You may spot old trash or bottles on a hillside, etc. Take your shovel there, and see what you find:
۰ I found the 1930s-40s Czech glass bead above, near my home. Gotta go back to see if there are any more 🙂 But even one is a fun, vintage, conversation piece.
۰ A friend of mine once found an early 1800s Hudson Bay Company trade bead while walking along a river bank.
۰ Some people in Georgia found a whole treasure trove of 400-year-old beads!
