I had a great time at B & B, as usual. Here are my goodies from Green Girl Studios, Andrew Thornton, Humblebeads, Glass Garden Beads, Joanne Zekowski, Lisa Peters, Golum Studio, Pam Wynn, Vintaj, Diane Hawkey, Earthenwood. Oddly enough, I didn't buy any strands of beads or stones this year except for the ancient roman glass - I'd been wanting some of that for some time now.
Lorelei Eurto was my shopping buddy, and it was the first time we met in person after being online friends for several years. I was so glad she was able to make it to her first B & B show! I hope it will be an annual trip for her!
The lovely Melanie of Earthenwood Studio. I really want to make it over to the Detroit area where she is going to be a vendor at the Rustbelt Market most all of this summer!
Unfortunately, those are the only "people" pictures I captured. I am so bad at taking pictures, especially when there are so many beads to look at and people to talk to! Baby Richard attended the show this year with me. I was lucky to have my Mom, Sister-in-Law, and Nephew there to help watch after him while I shopped. I felt bad that not a lot of people got to see him (or even hold him) but he is so good at being peaceful in his carrier that I don't dare to disturb him. I'm sure next year he will be more interactive!
