New on Pinterest: Anchors Aweigh

Anchors have an everyday poetry. In addition to their practical use, they also represent themes of stability, voyages, and summertime. They are perennial favorites as design motifs, and have been for hundreds of years. There are a lot of anchors in Seattle right now, as the city kicks off the annual Seafair festival. For Seafair activities, check out the Seafair website. For our favorite anchors, from diamonds to door-knockers, check out our new Pinterest board "Anchors Aweigh"...

Haskell Pearl Beads: Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies June 2013 Special for Newsletter Subscribers

Vintage Japanese glass pearl beads, free with purchase!

Not yet available at Bumbershoot Supplies, we are first offering these vintage glass pearls to our newsletter subscribers.

We recently acquired these vintage glass teardrop pearls as part of a large lot of beads and findings that were purchased from the Miriam Haskell warehouse decades ago. These lovely dark ivory pearls average 12mm long, and do vary a bit in size and shape, due to their handcrafted nature. 
During June, we will send 8 of these vintage treasures free with any purchase from Bumbershoot Supplies or Bumbershoot Designs.  See your June 1 and June 15 newsletters for details and the coupon code.

Also, don't forget your 1-time free shipping offer that you received when you signed up for our newsletter.

And YES, you can combine specials. So in the same order, you can have the pearl beads and the 1-time free shipping you received upon signing up for the newsletter.

Not yet a newsletter subscriber? You can read past issues and you can sign up right here and use your free shipping code and get your free vintage glass pearls at your next purchase!
