A friend and I had visited a paper crafting store and workshop where they had a treasure chest FILLED with these beads. The best part was the shovel! Yes, there was a plastic shovel for digging through them! The total price for two baggies was probably $2.
I have to tell you that was one of the highlights of my entire jewelry making career! There was something special about digging through a bucket of beads and finding little deer charms, smiley faces, eyeballs, 4 leaf clovers and much more!
I think finding an experience that transports you back to childhood is simply priceless! :)
