Change is Good!

Posted by Kim Connors on 2/14/2015 to News
Change is good, that is my new mantra.  Rod and I have been selling beads, findings, and jewelry kits online for over 10 years now.  I have no idea where the time has gone, but it really has been 10 years!  As hard as I have tried to fight them, so many things have changed since we started.  Believe it or not we started BeadBuddies selling little beaded animals I was making.  It was slow going back then and materials were so hard to find.  The Internet was still relatively young and buying and selling online was a pretty new invention.
