40th Semi-Annual Bead Bazaar

The 40th Semi Annual Bazaar will be held November 13th and 14th, 2004 at the Exhibition Center at the Ramada Inn in New Carrolton, MD. The times are 10 AM - 5 PM on Saturday, and 11 AM - 5 PM on Sunday. Proceeds of the bazaar help fund our museum, our educational programs, lecture series and other activities of our Society.

Since 1984, the Spring and Fall Bead Bazaars have grown to include almost seventy vendors from around the world.  They offer beads,  loose and strung,  ethnic ornaments,  findings,  tools and equipment,  and stunning designer jewelry.   

The Society's experts at the Bead ID table will identify your "mystery beads"  without charge,  while the book section can provide you with volumes on every aspect of  beads and beadwork:  history,  culture, design,  crafts,  and techniques,  as well as videos and periodicals.



More than 70 vendors from around the world will sell loose and strung beads, ethnic ornaments, findings, tools and equipment.  Stunning jewelry made by BSGW members will be on sale.


Terrific book sale of current titles featuring all aspects of beads:  history, culture, design and crafts.  Lots of  'how-to' books with great gift ideas.


Don't forget to bring your "mystery" beads for our experts to identify!
