Beads At The Beach Festival
One of our beloved customers and fellow Bead Friend, Melinda Frisch passed away a couple years ago from Anklyosing Spondylitis (AS). Melinda had a keen eye and over the years developed a collection comprised of some of the most rare and beautiful Trollbeads we have ever seen! Her family sought us out for this event, knowing that Melinda loved to attend the Beads at the Beach Festival each year. We are honored to be working with them to pass some of her collection on to those who love beads as much as she did! With some of these rare and amazing beads, we will be doing silent auctions on each day of the event. Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be 5-10 auctions, (meaning 15-30 beads total will be auctioned during the weekend). A portion of the proceeds will be donated to AS research.
Additionally, some of these beads will be in our "Special Section" at the event, allowing every attendee a fair opportunity to purchase one of these treasures. Just a few of Melinda's bracelets are shown below. To see our video announcement and more of her beautiful collection, watch the video link.
We are so excited for the silent auction items we have for this event. The items selected include rare unique styles, tupliak, Happy Universe, Pink Waters, Carved Amber, and an OPI prism! 5 items will be raffled via silent bidding each day (the order has not yet been determined); you must be present to place your initial bid, however you do not need to be present to win (we can do a phone order and ship).
The rules for our "Grand" Auction Item are a bit different. This bracelet is a complete Trollbeads 30th Anniversary bracelet. Collectors in store and online will be able to bid on this item. Full details on this raffle will be provided later in the week. A portion of all Silent Auction proceeds will be donated to AS research.
