Beads, Bags, and Beyond

August 3, 2011 - Beads, Bags, and Beyond recently held a Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Many friends, chamber ambassadors, and members of the business community attended the event.

Beads, Bags, and Beyond is a retail store offering beads, beading supplies, handcrafted jewelry, classes (both in store and by guest artists), handcrafted purses, as well as a variety of other unique purses. The store also offers handcrafted jewelry by many local Union County craftsmen.

In store classes are free and usually held on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. The classes are generic and are geared to individual interests. Many special techniques are taught in a bead group setting.

Owner Kelly Sampson says, “We go to a lot of trade shows to find new and exciting items for the store. We just purchased cabochons, copper, pewter, and silver plated findings, as well as some fabulous beads and crystals.”

Event and Hot Deal postings are updated often so be sure to visit the Beads, Bags, and Beyond Chamber of Commerce webpage. Emails are sent out regularly when new merchandise arrives and when special classes are offered so don’t forget to sign up for the Beads, Bags, and Beyond newsletter.

Beads, Bags, and Beyond is located right off the Blairsville square at 49C Blue Ridge Street. Business hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and whenever chairs are out on the sidewalk! See you soon!
