Sisterhood of the Traveling Beads Giveaway

This is a box full of goodies from my studio purge. 
One woman's tossed out beads is another woman's treasures! 

The giveaway: The entire box of goodies, over $200 worth of beads.

The stipulations: You'll pay for shipping: $8.95 for flat rate priority mail.

The rules: You'll take what you want from the box, add in items from your own bead stash to replace the items you took and do the same giveaway on your blog. We'll keep the beads traveling for as long as we can.

To enter: Leave a comment, include your email.
Bonus: Blog, facebook or twitter about it to enter twice.  Leave another comment letting me know you helped spread the word.

Deadline: March 26 at 12pm (Central time)

International bloggers: I'm sorry, but due to shipping only those in the U.S. can play along.  But I'm suddenly feeling really bad for my non-U.S. blog readers.  If you are outside the states leave a comment and I'll also draw one international winner for a bead grab bag from my Etsy shop.

So let's take a closer look at this box o'wonders:
Metal beads of all sorts.

Some bead soup mixes with pearls, stones and glass.  Glass beads, crystals, lucite flowers and some goodies from Rings & Things.

A whole mess of older Humblebeads.  Experiments and earlier versions.

Art beads, some left over form the Bead Cruise.  Gaea, Jangles, C-Koop, Marsha Neal, Earthenwood Studio, Lisa Shifflet, Summer Studios and more.

Felt and fiber beads

Seed Beads

Findings and stringing materials.  Some from Hobby Lobby, silk cord, memory wire, fan pull kits, chain and bead wires from Rings & Things. 


McGrabbies - Mom and Jess tried to steal some of the goodies.  Don't worry, I fended them off.

And yes, days later and projects passed my desk is still clean!
Good luck everyone.

Are you SURE about that!??! All that stuff looks so great! Are you sure you want to just up and give it away like that???
Alllllright. if you're sure. I want to put my name in the hat. What a terrific idea- I seriously hope I win.

charkstudios said...

What a great idea! I'm afraid I don't have any beads to replace my McGrabbing out of the stash!

Still a great idea!

TesoriTrovati said...

Zoinks! What if I want it all!!!! Of course that is impossible, as I would have to replace it from my burgeoning stash. This would be loads of fun! Thanks for the great idea and the chance to win. Just to fondle them all before sending them on their way would be a treat. (Am I weird, or what?) Enjoy the day! Erin

Deerwoman said...

What a great idea. I have lots I could contribute. How do we determine what's fair to replace? I'd have no idea of the value of some of these.

How about if contributors post pix of the contents when they get it and what they add? It would be very interesting to see how it changes.

Heather Powers said...

I will leave it up to the winner to decide what is a fair exchange. It doesn't have to be dollar for dollar. Just think about the next winner and be generous!

Gail Whitehead said...

I would love to get a chance to get my hands on those beads and more!I do have beads to replace,I'm a hoarderThis is a wonderful idea,is this the result of you clearing your desk?If so,I can't even imagine the goodies you have kept.I'm going to facebook it.Great idea,Heather.

Gail W. said...

I really like the idea of a travelling box of beads...touching so many beaders across the country....so, I'd love to play.
Is it possible to share your turn? Because I know my bead society would love to join in but most of them don't blog or have sites.

kismet1990 said...

Hello! :)

A friend of mine started something like this a little while ago - on a much smaller scale of course - only $15 worth of beads - and we have 4 beaders who are participate currently. When the pkgs contain beads we originally put into the stash, we take them out and replace them and just keep the traveling bead circle going. :) It's a really fun way to destash/share and receive/discover new goodies! Your box of goodies looks awesome!! I would love to win!

What a great idea! It's enough to make a girl want to start a blog! But agree with other comments...are you sure you want to destash all that bead goodness? I would definitely have a hard time "passing it on". Am very impressed with your generosity.

Luthvian said...

All that stuff looks amazing! I'd love to get my hands on it and just play with it!

Unfortunately, not only am I international (I live in Canada) but I've neither the substantial stash nor the funds to replace what I'd take. I'd love to get the consolation prize, though :D

Best of luck to the rest of you!

Elizabeth said...

I would love to be chosen. Love, love, love I tell you. I'll blog it over at my blog.

Will go blog and tweet it now! (I'm supposed to be in the studio working, Shh, don't tell anyone!

ccrider2006 said...

I would love to get in on it and I have lots of things I can substitute for the things I take out. This is a great idea and you have had 99 comments so far. What if we all started more than one package going so everyone would have a chance to participate. you should set a time limit on how long before the package moves on - 1-2 weeks. Just think, if we did this, it could go on for several years going down the list of names. What fun would that be to see how it changes through it's travels. What an intriguing idea.

I'll tweet/FB this as well, but I've half a mind to do my own, so I won't take up two entries.

Dynila said...

Throwing my name in the hat just for the chance to dig around in all the beady goodness for a little while. My stash is not quite so large so I'd have to leave most of it in the box, but I really want to get a look at those fiber beads!

Hi, I think most beads really like to travel. All over the place. This is just such a wonderful way of swapping beads between beadlovers. I was sooooo thrilled when i read it. But i am in Sweden, so i can't participate. Please put my name down for the international draw. Do I need to do something more to participate?
