02I sell beads and fused glass. But I also buy them occasionally, as well as other jewelry making supplies. www.jewelrymall.com. So I was searching for a local upcoming show to see when it was and stumbled upon a really great site for bead show listings. They had just about every show you could think of from coast to coast. This is good both as an exhibitor and as a buyer. We just missed the Best Bead Show in Tucson, which for glass bead makers is one of “the” shows. The fall show is smaller than February’s show but if anyone knows about Tucson in February, it’s the city for all things bead, glass, gem, fossil, you name it. There is the Whole Bead Show or the Bead Renaissance Show or the Rings and Things Bead Tour…among all the others!

Back to the show listing web site…where do you live? What are you looking for? I think you can find the information you need here. Check it out!
