Sally and Amy of The Bead Goes On win the Best Booth award! These hard working women give 150% when designing their booth layout...and it shows. I am pretty sure they have scoured eastern Asia to bring us the finest adornments...exotic beads, copper, silver, and gold plated in every yogi symbol out there. My favorite part of their booth is the huge selection of beaded bangles. Be sure to check out their awesome website.
Dave and Kathy Fox travel to Italy to bring us REAL Venetian beads! They have the best selection of glass Venetian Beads and they now carry European Regaliz leather and components. I couldn't leave their booth without making sure to have purchased Rhinestone inlaid Regaliz leather (in RED of course) to adorn my dog Rocco's neck. He is a Prince after all!
