Silver Shopping

The Bead Shoppe's semi-annual Sterling Silver Trunk Show was today. I'm happy to say that I maintained some self-control as I shopped for the store, I barely shopped for myself! I only chose $15 worth of goodies for myself! I did however choose some fabulous new pieces for the store! (It's so much fun shopping with someone else's money!) So if you're in search for some new Sterling pendants, bead caps, charms or clasps, we're the place to shop! I know I'm eye-balling a few pieces to purchase later!

We also have some beautiful new freshwater pearls that Esther bought from her most recent buying 30% off the ticket price! How cool is that? I'm still trying to find the proper homes for everything, but please don't let that persuade you from stopping by & having me show you the brand new stock!

Goodness, this is definitely the start of holiday shopping! Time for me to batten down the hatches! j/k ;)

Another Guilty Pleasure

A few weeks back I found this INCREDIBLE shirt on etsy:

It's by Branded! Why is this t-shirt so incredible you ask? Well if you must ask, I will educate you! This is the art for the Mutant Enemy logo:

Which is Joss Whedon's production company! For those of you who don't know who Joss Whedon is, he is the incredible mind behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer (My I can't even put into words favorite TV show ever!), Angel, Firefly/Serenity and many other incredible projects!

I was always happy to see the "Grr...Aargh" Monster go across the screen at the end of each Buffy show...and then equally saddened because that meant I had to wait a week to find out what happened next! (*Sigh!) Needless to say, I was ecstatic to see this logo made into a shirt...which I can happily wear to the comic book store or whenever! :-D

Please Vote!

'Twas the night before Election Day
and all the protesters were stirring
up and down all the major avenues!

I don't really care which side of the street you stand on, I just hope that you let your voice be heard in the voting booth! This is an important election and I can only hope for the best for our nation!
