NYC Bead Babe Field Trip

Have you ever wanted to shop for jewelry supplies in NYC?
Have you ever wanted to explore the hidden warehouses, but didn't know where to start?
Don't want to go it alone in the big city?
Want to go with a bunch of crazy jewelry artists types that will understand that glint in your eye when you find the exact color of vintage lucite you've been searching for?

You are in luck!  Join us Sunday - Tuesday, August 24-26 for a NYC Bead Buying Binge!
