BeadFest Philadelphia 2013 Artists Booths

Beadfest Philadelphia August 2013 is just a few days away.

The vendors are getting all their goods ready and displays all packed up ready for the show
Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25, 2013 (Halls B&C)

This show is such a great one to attend not only because of the amount of beads available,
but also because you get to meet the artists and fondle their beads in person!
Artisan Accents by Staci Louise Booth #371 Bead Fest Philadelphia 2013
and
Genea Beads Booth #371 Bead Fest Philadelphia 2013
Both will be in booth #371...

And diagonally across that bead booth intersection you can find:
Marsha Neal Studio at D7Studio Booth #366 Bead Fest Philadelphia 2013
My work is represented by D7Studio in booth #366
I (Marsha) plan on being around the show floor on Friday stopping by and seeing some friends in their booths, so if you see me, grab me and say Hi! 
And I'm usually a big hugger - so you are warned...

Print this coupon and get an admission pass for $5!
Referring Vendor Can be any vendor that recommended you go to the show!
Here is a layout of the "Artisan's Alley" section of the floor plan if you want to grab a quick screen shot to keep on your smart phone (from the main entrance go straight and to your right).

And make sure to not miss the booths in the other half of the main part of the show (this would be on your left when you come in the main show entrance).

And here is my personal "Must See" list of awesome vendors: artists, suppliers and shops!
Just so you know, I traveled the country with a lot of these people for years, all selling our goods, making a living and having fun, and have grown to think of many of them as my bead family...

I talk way too much at this show just catching up with friends and get barely any shopping done!

Do you have your "must see" list done yet?

I'll be making more beads this week to get them to Darlene for her D7Studio booth for the show.
You can catch my progress on my Instagram or Facebook feed...

PS - Social Media = #BeadFest (will update if there are other fun tags to be used during the show)

Marsha,
Your post makes me even more excited for BF, if that's possible. Can't wait to meet you and hang out with all my beady friends. I hope you do spend more than just one day there. Your post is great, as it gives us links to all the artisan vendors that will be at BF. I'm going to investigate the websites of the artisans whose works I am not familiar with. See 'ya soon!

So may fantastic artisan vendors! I will miss shopping in Artisan Alley this year as well as spending time with the awesome beady peeps. The people behind the beads are what make this annual trip so special!

Gardanne said...

Can't wait to see you Marsha, thanks for including me in your wish list.

Artisan Beads Plus said...
