The Connecticut Bead Society is a volunteer driven non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the joy of beading through inspiration and education. We provide the opportunity to meet kindred spirits with similar goals and take pleasure in our art and in each others company.
If you are a bead vendor, or bead store (online or brick and mortar), you will want to sign up for the CT Bead Society's Annual Bead Bazaar.
We are getting close to the CT Bead Society’s Virtual Bead Bazaar on Facebook on August 29th!
For less than 22 cents per day, your page and photos will remain posted on the CTBS Bead Bazaar Album through July 2021! Please send your pictures to Sharon Mann at the email below.
Here's how the Bazaar will work:
1. In your album, we will post up to 15 pictures of your beads or findings as an introduction to your website or shop.
2. Within the descriptions in each album there will be your website address, etsy shop address, etc. so our members can shop from you directly, through what ever venue you sell outside of live sales. If you do not have a website or shop, your email will be provided so you may be contacted directly by our buyers.
3. We will ask the buyers to use the code CTBS2020 when ordering so you know the order was related to the Bead Bazaar.
We will charge each vendor a $80 one - time fee to create the album and post the photos for you. The charge for current CTBS member/vendors is $70 (you may join as a member for $15 on this website (please see the PayPal link to the left.)
You may also mail your check to:
The CT Bead Society
P.O. Box 372
We believe this is a great deal and would love for you to remain a valued friend to the CT Bead Society!
As you know, we have over 1200 followers on Facebook!
Should you have specific questions on how this works on Facebook, please contact Sharon Mann @ email@example.com.
