Beads by the Bay - San Francisco Jul 20-22

Happy 4th of July to all our American customers!

We very much enjoyed Portland and the WholeBead Show as well as the staff. The venue in Montgomery Park was a beautiful setting on the edge of the 'Nob Hill' district. Nearby were lovely shops and restaurants.

The Montgomery Park was originally the distribution center for Montgomery Wards, built in 1921 with a train track in the basement for delivery of goods. It has since been renovated and is on Oregon's National Historic List. Today it houses offices and medical facilities as well as spacious ballrooms for shows like our bead show.

We again were happy to meet our regular customers who came from as far as Florida and Idaho. And for us a special treat was seeing my great niece, Rebecca who is working in the area. She gave us recommendations on restaurants and helped us set up. Even her boyfriend enjoyed the beads and was soon telling customers how they were made. While I thought they would be bored in a hour, they insisted in staying all day Saturday - well maybe we've made some new beaders, beading is after all addictive.

While we were there Ava talked us into doing the San Francisco show, so for all of you northern Californians, here's your chance to see us once again along with the other marvelous vendors. (More Info on our website)
