Why we do not print a catalog
Unlike most bead dealers, our products are unique and are not replaceable. It is not possible to go into the open market and just repeat some item that sold well; vintage beads are not available in that capacity and everything we sell is Vintage. Most of it has been
in our family collection for at least 60 years. We have millions of beads in stock BUT when any style is sold out it will never be seen again! As we often post a style and then sell it out in a matter of days, sometimes hours, any catalog we printed would be hopelessly out of date before we even
had a chance to put it in the mail!
So, no catalog. Check in often as we update the site almost daily. The beads you love but will order "next time" may very well be gone by then so I urge you not to hesitate.
From time to time, at no special intervals, we offer discounts and special beads to members of the mailing list. In order to access these specials, a member must enter a code on the checkout page. This code is not made available to any but members of the mailing list, "outsiders" will never know it is there. Discounts can be substantial and special bead and other offerings are not available on the regular website. The ONLY WAY to avail yourself of these deals is to be on the mailing list BEFORE they are sent out. Also, the codes may not be shared with anyone else, if your name is not on the list you cannot use the code, even if your friend tells you what it is. Needless to say, but I will say it anyway, invalid email addresses will be eliminated from the list. So if you change your email, be sure to re-register on the mailing list. YOU must do this yourself, we cannot do it for you as you will get a confirmation at your email address which you must then use to verify that you did indeed join the list. This is all part of the anti-spam efforts of the internet at large. So please cooperate.
