Meet us in Portland
Thanks to all of you who visited our show in Las Vegas. It was great fun meeting our friends from Rochester and other far away places. It is always good to put a face with customers.
The weather was a balmy 107 on Sunday afternoon when we were closing, but had been really good all week. After work, of course we enjoyed touring the big hotels, looking at the Dale Chihuly "Fiori di Como" on the cieling in the lobby of the Bellagio hotel and walking along the miniature Grand Canal at the Venetian Hotel. Even Venetians enjoy the re-creation of their city.
We're getting into the swing of the bead shows, and now looking forward to Portland. Oregon next weekend June 23-24 at the WholeBead Show located at the Montgomery Park in the Ballroom. Once again we'll have the largest selection of Venetian Beads ever seen at shows. We will also have a selection of our New Arrivals available.
I am excited about the show but also about visiting Portland, as it will be a first for me. Portland is known for its roses and I think June will be the perfect timing. So come out and visit with us, enjoy Portland, which was recently named America's "Best Big City" according to Money Magazine. It will certainly be better with all the beads there next weekend.
Did I mention that we are doing the Sonoma Glass Art and Bead Festival, Sonoma, California August 11-12. Details to follow. Beads and Wine, probably a dangerous combination.
