It's the end of an era! After 10 years in business, AZ Bead Depot has closed the doors for good. Our last day in business was December 15, 2012.
We have retired due to Mike's health issues. THANK YOU to all of our wonderful friends and customers who made our 10 years in business so much FUN! We will miss you all! Retirement is going to be a challenge!
Some of you have asked about the instructors and future classes. Jill, Marlie and Pam have decided to retire from teaching - at least for now. They may at some time in the future be available for private lessons or small group classes. I've encouraged Dennison to look into teaching classes at CAC or the Mesa Arts Center. Polly will probably be teaching small classes from her home.
If you are wondering what happened to the inventory that was leftover - it's been boxed up and is in our garage - YIKES!! [Does anyone have a wall stretcher?] We are currently taking a break from selling beads and haven't decided what to do with it yet. We would be willing to sell it ALL, if a reasonable offer is made. If nothing else, we'll probably start selling it online, maybe in 6 months or a year.
