Fab Friday Giveaway: Bumbershootsupplies.com

This is going to be a great weekend!! Check out this awesome giveaway!

VINTAGE BEADS! How amazing is this collection?!

Our friends Sharon and Jim at Bumbershootsupplies.com have very generously selected some "trendy" vintage beads for you!

One of the reasons I have a soft spot for vintage beads like these is that I can FEEL their mature or seasoned vibe. They have already lived a little bit and are coming back for more! I also see that they can be turned into something fresh and trendy! Sharon mentioned the fall edition of Vogue magazine included very similar amethyst/purple tones. :)

I am so thrilled to be able to offer you the chance to win this collection!!

I love ALL of these beads, but I was first taken by the set of "Amethyst Navette Glass Sew On Jewels"! Then I saw the pearls and I melted...I knew you would too!

If you would like to throw your name in the ring to win this entire collection, just leave a comment on this post. I'll select a random winner next Friday.

Until then, if you want to take a closer look, here are all the bead details so you can zoom in on the Bumbershootsupplies.com site!

I love the vintage beads that Bumbershoot offers. And, Sharon does such a great job of sourcing the provenance of them.
This collection is fantastic.

I love vintage beads too- I like to think about who wore them previously if I find them at a garage sale or flea market. The colors always seem richer to me too. Thanks for the fabulous give away.

Lois, I am soooo into vintage beads, redesigned into today's jewelry. I also fall in love with a vintage piece and then just have to leave it intact instead of tearing it down to make something else, I just wear it proudly as it is.

Trish said...

Wonderful bunch of beady goodness!! Would love to get my hands on these and see what transpires!

Kell said...

I love this set of beads! I especially love the colors. I usually gravitate toward blues and greens, so it is wonderful to see such a beautiful set of beads in a color combination that I rarely work in!
