Bead and Save's $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway

By on Monday, March 21, 2011 58 Comments

They're B-A-A-C-K! The twins, otherwise known as Gail and Karen, are sponsoring another giveaway. This time for a $25 gift certificate towards beads and supplies from their shop, Bead and Save.This giveaway is limited to US and Canadian residents.


As some of you may remember from the post about their previous giveaway, these fellow Canadians, Gail and Karen are retired and have embarked onto their second careers as bead suppliers. Yes, they now get to play with beautiful beads full time! That must brighten up their days especially in winter because they just hate snow.  Montreal gets a lot more snow than Halifax.


If you haven't yet visited their store, take a look. They carry a variety of beads and supplies but they do specialize in lamp work and Pandora-style beads where you can "build a bracelet".  Luscious colors and cool beads too. I particularly like the wooden strawberry beads which adorn a metal bookmark.





On their blog, Karen has showcased some of the bags she likes to make, decorated with beads, naturally! Don't these inspire you to use your beads in other ways besides jewelry making? They did for me.


Giveaway
To enter the giveaway,  all you have to do is make a comment below. Extra entries if you become or are a blog subscriber or follower or also on Facebook Fan page or Twitter. Please say so in the comments. The giveaway ends in a week's time at 6 pm EST Monday, March 28, 2011. I will pick a winner randomly and announce the results as soon as possible after. So be sure to come back and check! Good luck!

Note : This particular giveaway is only open to those in the US and Canada.

  2. They have a wonderful site and this is one of those cases where you would like to win but you almost hope you won't, because $25 would just be a beginning, lol. Love Pandora type beads and they look terrific on the purses - great idea!

  7. What beautiful beads. I enjoy reading this blog. I get e-mails AND a reminder from Facebook. I never miss a thing and get great inspiration from your blog.

    Due to moving I have to pack up all my crafting and art supplies. I've decided to keep out my jewelry making supplies so I have some kind of creative outlet. I haven't used the Pandora style beads (YET) but the design possibilities look endless.

  30. The twins have been friends of mine for years (I lived in Montreal for about 5 years). In fact, I am heading there next week. I was just looking at some lampwork beads that I bought from them a couple of years ago and thinking I must use them (lovely blue and brown set of beads). Like all of you, I buy more beads than I can use.

    BTW - Gail and Karen are as cute as their beads!
