The Bead Post...Literally!

Like literally a post about traipsing around Perth looking for beads!

Okay, maybe not so much traipsing because we did our research before heading to Perth, and ended up with two places in mind - Benjamin's Crafts & The Bead Post.

Our first stop was Benjamin's Crafts, we were really excited about this because the website showed such promise of millions and millions in bead collections.
We went there the day we touched down in Perth and even waited outside for it to open! :)

But what showed such promise also would've taken a lot out of our pocket. Most of their items you could pretty much find in a lot of beading places elsewhere but they were made of very good quality, hence the hefty prices - in any case, we decided to get some items we needed, and headed out the door.

Our next outing a couple of days later was a gem of a find! We arrived early (again) and had to get some coffee around the corner from The Bead Post, which turned out to be pretty yummylicious! I had a Mocha made from Belgian chocolate - nothing but ooh-la-la!

Just around the right time, when the chocolate's all seeped into our system, we got off our butts and headed into the shop...and I'll let the pics take you on the rest of the tour now :)

Beads and beads galore!

Counting & packing up our huge-mon-gous order

The ones they were done with.....

.....the ones still waiting to be packed!

I love all the bright colours of the candy-looking-resin beads, well folks, that's what you have to look forward to in our next batch of Choobs Trinkets coming up!

Savour the delicious colours now and we hope, one day, it'll end up on some part of your body :) And if you're ever in Perth, and want to go bead shopping - head down to The Bead Shop in Fremantle - you'll not just love the shop, you'll love the markets, the quaint boutiques and eating fish & chips by the jetty :) That's what made this bead trip so fun!

So keep a lookout and our up and comings :) In the meantime, we'll put up more stuff from our existing line. Here's to bead-trippin'!
