Mill Hill Beads
Originally uploaded by cshella
There is a Michael's Craft Center in Avon, Ohio, about forty miles east of Norwalk but very near to where my parents live. I stopped in there the other day to look for something for an Aunt who is in the hospital. While there I browsed through the needlework department and to my glorious surprise, there, in the one dollar clearance rack were Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads! These beads are normally sold at needlework/cross stich stores and they are not cheap. As you can see I couldn't help myself! I found about eight different types that I really liked and took them up to the cashier. (Mill Hill Beads for a dollar! I was in heaven!) I asked the cashier why they were so cheap and she stated that she wasn't sure why they were marked down but that she had bought herself some the day before. From now on when I am there I am going to check out the clearance section of the needlework department. I walked out of there feeling like I had won the lottery!

What a great buy! I have some Mill Hill's that I purchased over 15 years ago at a Stitchery shop --they were $1.30 then--what a bargain!
