Inspiration Story by Beverly Goldacker

Welcome to the 8th Annual Ohio Bead Shop Hop

April 16-21   2018

Tag-a-long friends, plan your field trip and take a drive to see why NW Ohio has one-of-a-kind bead shops.   We will have a gift card drawing for those who go to all 5 shops and complete the hop.  This event brings together 5 fantastic women owned businesses and allows us to share our passion, and beads with the community.  

Bead Design Contest

This year we will also be having a design contest!  Each store will have one type of bead on sale and these will be used by our customers to create a piece which will then be judged and prizes awarded.  

Why Participate?  Your winning design will be seen by many jewelry artists, and locally.  We will also publish your name.  Here's what you can win: $100 VISA and Bead Book 

Goody bag

It wouldn't be fun without goodies!  While supplies last!  One goody bag per customer, goody bags are limited to the first 50 customers.  

Each shop will have goody bags, and have its own specials promotions and projects.  


Inspired by Soap Operas

This year each store represents a Soap Opera for the week of the hop. When visiting - take a look around, there will be 5 clues at each store. After spying the clues, write down your answer for that store. Figure out all 5 and your name goes in the hat for an extra chance to win a great prize.  

Hours of Hop

We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours. 

Monday thru Saturday  10am-6pm 

Please share your bead journey!  This year like us, spread the news, and post your bead adventure on facebook.
