For our February 4th, 2012 meeting of the Central Florida Etsians, our Team Captain Gabriela and I put together gift bags for the attending members. Included in the gift bags, which were hand made by Gabriela, were wonderful samples of beads, findings, thank you tags, greeting cards, and more! All of these items were provided by the list of stores and Etsy shops below.
On behalf of all the Central Florida Etsians, I would like to thank everyone who sent a promo item to us for these gift bags and we all look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Here is a list of the great companies and Etsy Shops where you can find out more about the promo items or purchase directly from these fabulous people!

The Bead Basket – 572 S. Econ Circle, Oviedo, Florida 32765 – 407-977-1003
Larry, the owner of the Bead Basket is a big supporter of the Etsy community. The Bead Basket has over 20,000 items in stock for jewelry making and I would venture to say they have the largest Sterling Silver and Gold-Filled finding assortment in Central Florida. Customer Service is stellar at the Bead Basket and I highly encourage each and every one of you to drop by to say hello and take a look around. It will quickly become your home away from home as the service is so wonderful. The Bead Basket has been in business for over 22 years and it reminds me of the “old school” family owned jewelry stores that we rarely see nowadays with its quaint charm, friendly service, and and upbeat atmosphere.
