The Cab-oniferous Period

Back in the caboniferous period, before the evolution of the button, mighty cabs ruled the earth, crashing through the jungle, terrorizing all who encountered them.

However – the evolution of the button, with its fancy-schmancy metal loop on the back, put paid to all but the hardiest of this now elusive species of adornment.

These days, those lovely, shank-less button cabs – so beloved of bead embroiderers, embellishers and other beady folk are an elusive species. But we managed to find some for you.

Of course, with any round-up of creatures as rare as this, a few stragglers are bound to get caught up in the excitement, and to that end, we also have some actual buttons.

Need a little reading material? I don’t see the online grocery stores selling magazines.

I have to say – I 100% like online grocery shopping and I have no intention of going back when all this craziness is over.

They’ve come undone …

They’ve come unstrung … they didn’t know what they were beaded for, and when we found them on the floor – it was toooo laaaate – they’d come undone.

Again – supply chain issues – a number of the Czech 11/0 seedbeads that usually come in hanks, we can’t currently get in hanks, but we can get them
loose. So for now, we are shipping those in 40 gram bags, which is the same quantity (we measured). Somewhat annoying, I grant you if you needed them strung to work with, but best we can offer. Better than no beads, amiright?

Tubeless in Toronto

We are running short of tubes for packaging Delicas, Tohos, Miyukis, etc. If yours arrive in a plastic bag, rest assured that you received the same amount as you would have otherwise. Once our supplier is able to get their production line running again, we will go back to tubing. Apologies for the
disappointment this might cause you, and the general chaos this may make of your carefully organized drawers of beads.

Remember – support your local businesses. Shop Small!
