Bead Buying in Tucson
However I really don't want 20 to 30 of each bead. If I got 12 to 15 strands, that's one heck of a lot of leftover beads (300?). I was wondering if anyone else might want to join me in a sort of bead buying co-op? The Gem show runs from the last week of January through the first two weeks of February.
I shop the Tucson Gem Show every year and here are three strands that I've picked up in past years. Unfortunately the red beads are dyed MOP and I take them out just to play with every once in a while. I knew they would fade if I used them, but they were so nice feeling in the hand that I couldn't resist.
I'm pretty sure I can find unusual and different beads for between $8 to $12 per strand wholesale. I'm thinking that 12 people could split 12+ strands and have an eclectic mix of beads that nobody else would have. That is if you would trust me to pick the bead strands. If there are about a dozen people who might have an interest, (click to contact me)=email me and I'll figure out how this would work and what a total cost would be.
