Today's prize was generously contributed by Bead and Save, an online store based in Montreal, Canada - they also have an ad on the right sidebar of my blog. Bead and Save is the growing concern of two sisters, Gail and Karen who started their store because "We adore everything about beads and decided after much thought to finally do what we love." They have a lovely range of beads at great prices for they really do want you to bead and save. Of special note are their lamp work beads and Pandora style collection which enables you to build a bracelet very easily. I know because I just bought some lampwork beads for my workshops!

Gail and Karen also have a great sense of humor which is evident in their newish blog. They described their blog "Love to Bead, love to bitch" as one which chronicles "how they came to have an online store and the trials and tribulations of trying to succeed in business during a recession"! The best of luck to them....and you!
