After a lot of consideration we have decided to close down The Bead Shed.
Life has changed recently, I (Sooz) found myself applying for a job in Hobbycraft and getting it. I am working most weekdays, but in the times that I am not working I find myself wanting to craft - after all I am seeing new stuff everyday and I just NEED to try everything out!
Andrew has decided to go self-employed and start a new IT business in Carlisle (you can find him HERE on Facebook) This means, any spare (non-crafting) time I did have, will be ploughed into helping him with admin, advertising and accounting.
It must have been noted that we have not been putting a lot of effort into The Bead Shed for a little while now, all good things come to pass and it looks like it is time to close the book on this chapter. It has served us well as a nice little business, but in reality I don’t want to sit out in The Shed all day, often alone (violins please!) with no one to make me brews. Going back to work at Hobbycraft has lessened the tedium somewhat and I really enjoy it.
I am not into beading as much as I used to be either, which I think is half of the problem.
So, dear customers, it is time to give you our notice. There is no date that we will stop trading, as it will be when the stock has been cleared. Maybe a month, possibly 6 months, but in reality it will probably be a year or more. We still have a lot of stock J
We would like to thank all of our customers; you have been fabulous in your continued support and returning custom.
We will be attending the Bead Fair at Carlisle Racecourse in September. (If we have any stock left) where everything will be HALF RETAIL PRICE.
In the meantime, if you would like anything. Please yell, or you may find it ……gone!
