$1 Bead Store Baggie

I had previously seen an entire strand of glass fruit beads at the local bead store, but was preoccupied with other beads at the time.

I thought about those cool fruit beads and wished I could have a handful of them to play with, not necessarily an entire strand.

Well....good news! When I made the trip to Ally Beads over the weekend, I was very pleased to find that they now have a little treasure chest full of $1 baggies containing miscellaneous leftover beads in them.

I found 3 baggies that each had at least 2 fruit beads in them! Yay!

I'm excited to work these into a project and would love to hear ideas for using them. I believe all together I have 10 pieces of fruit! :)

Let me know what you think!

Great find! I'm sure they would make a cute summer bracelet, necklace and earrings. If you are looking for more fruit you might try going to orientaltrading.com They have a lot of beads now (which I just found out). Use the search and put in "fruit beads". Good prices.
