Hammers and Punches and Seedbeads, Oh My!

The UPS guy was moaning and groaning today when he delivered 6 very heavy cartons of stuff today. We've been restocking our much depleted hooks after last month's March Madness sale.

First off was a 50lb box of Toho beads, the second of two to arrive this week. The Miyuki delicas, cubes and fringe drops arrived just before the holidays and are waiting their turn to be packaged.

The rest of the big cartons today were from our tool supplier. So now we have lots of 2-hole punches, chasing hammers, rubber bench blocks and nylon jaw pliers. If you've been waiting for these, better visit us soon because these just fly out of the store when they arrive.

As far as new stuff is concerned, I received some smaller steel bench blocks, casting wax for our new silversmithing course, wax files, hand drills, small letter stamps and hand torches. Also, as a result of what I learned at the Swarovski Education Conference, we will be introducing two new lines of glues which are even better than the Hypo and E6000 we currently carry. Look for these in our store and on our website soon!
