Wish I was there

Imagine for a moment, that you are headed to Milwaukee, to attend one of the biggest bead shows of the year. Can you feel the excitement? Pounding in your chest, knowing what is in store for you?
You can't?  Whyzzat- because you aren't going?

yeaaa. Me neither.

At this stage of my beading career, I can really only afford one big bead show a year, and I'll be headed to Philadelphia for Bead Fest, because I can drive there, in a 5 hour time span. I like to imagine what it would be like if I could go to Milwaukee. To hop on that jet plane and arrive in a city that I've never been to, in anticipation of meeting friends in person, that I feel like I've known forever...

 I imagine that I would spend at least one day  fondling the beads, running my fingers through all of the bead trays, like the ones shown here.

I would definitely be here at Pam and Heather Wynn's Table  (Top image)

And it wouldn't take me long to shoot over to Lisa Peters Table! (center pic)
And then I would pit stop at Jangles table because the colors would guide me there (bottom pic)

Just look at their shiny smiling faces!? Nothing can make a girl smile like that, other than beads!! I imagine that I would be there too- I would be in that picture, I would be smiling, and laughing and shopping....ahhhh.

Well, never fear. I have put together a shopping list of some popular vendors that will be selling their wares this year at Bead & Button. Click each of the names, and while you are feeling all jealous as your friends are all twittering from their iphones about how great it is, and how many beads they've bought,  you can do your fair share of online shopping damage too!!

For a complete list of exhibitors, with their booth numbers,  click here...

Thank you to Erin Prais-Hintz for allowing me to use her pictures for this post, because ehem. she was there, and will be there again this year.
nah, I'm not bitter!! But one of these people better buy some beads for me!!
