This is a shopping tip for beaders and other crafters who use beads in their craftwork. I always try to hit the after-holidays ornament sales and stock up on beaded ornaments. You'd be surprised how many beads you can get from garlands and ornaments after taking them apart.
I do that too--epecially at places like the hardware store (Menards out here), where it's a seasonal thing to pull more women in. I've gotten beaded garland for a couple of bucks, and made some knock out jewelry with it.
