Introducing Cherry Tree Beads...and some pretty exciting news!


Have you visited Cherry Tree BeadsBill Edwards, the owner, contacted me to introduce himself and his delightful business, and in the course of talking, he came up with an idea that is going to blow your socks off!  More on that later...

Cherry Tree Beads got up and running originally because of Bill's wife BeBe's interest in beading and selling her pieces.  As often happens, one thing led to another until Bill had a business that was employing family members and other staffers, and was averaging over 40 bead shows each year!  Not too bad!

Bill explained that he began traveling overseas to find better and better sources, especially for the gemstone beads that he personally is so crazy about.  In fact, when this post goes live, Bill will be in China on a buying trip...hiya Bill, travel safe!   Besides gemstone beads, Cherry Tree Beads has glass beads, base metal, freshwater pearls, resin beads, all kinds of findings and supplies, and assorted goodies that Bill happens across and happens to like!

Now here's the surprise: BeBe packed up a huge boxful of beads that she and Bill sent me to examine the quality and to give away to YOU!!  Believe me, the quality is just fine...you will be very very pleased if you either order from them or win one of these giveaway packages.  The thing is, BeBe sent so much that I've decided to do at least SIX giveaways during April and May, so don't forget to keep checking back for more chances to win this Spring!

*** FREE STUFF ALERT ***

Here's what's in the first package (shown above):

Petrified wood (not on website currently, but probably available at shows)
Citrine nuggets
Gold color base-metal spacers

Would you like to win it?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!

Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: April 21, 2011.

I buy from Cherry Tree Beads when they are here in Charlotte for bead shows. I have been VERY VERY pleased with my purchases and the staff for the bead show are great.

Since you can never have too many beads, I would love to win more.
