October Trollbeads at the Beach Festival!
Blooming Boutique in Lewes is hosting the 11th TROLLBEADS AT THE BEACH Festival in Lewes, Delaware on October 12-14. Owner, Micha Seto is proud that Blooming Boutique is now one of the top Trollbeads retailers in the United States! The 3-day event will be held at various locations in historic downtown Lewes. Friday and Sunday activities will be at the Blooming Boutique store on Second Street; Saturday’s ticketed event will be at the Lewes Presbyterian Church.
While there will be many exclusive products appealing to the avid collector, this event is also wonderful for those just starting to learn about Trollbeads. In usual fashion, Micha knows how to throw a party – complete with fabulous cocktails and food throughout the weekend! The theme of this festival will be “Travel the World with Trollbeads,” featuring various cuisines throughout the weekend including Italian, Mexican, and Chinese.
For those not familiar with the brand, Trollbeads is an innovative jewelry concept that tells unique stories through interchangeable, artisan-quality beads made of Murano glass, sterling silver, semi-precious stones, and 18kt gold. By combining individual Trollbeads on a bracelet or necklace, the wearer can design a meaningful, one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that represents a narrative of their accomplishments, life experiences, and passions. Trollbeads is the original “bead on jewelry” company, which started in 1976, over 40 years ago! The line has grown tremendously over the years, featuring hundreds of interchangeable beads and multiple bracelet, bangle, and necklace styles.
The festival begins at the Lewes Blooming Boutique store on Friday morning at 9am. Event specials start including buy 3 get 1 free on beads and exclusive gift with purchase promotions available on Friday only. Trollbeads specials and promotions will run throughout the day and can be counted towards special offers available on Saturday. Additionally, on Friday, patrons will have the opportunity to visit all of Micha’s six stores (Lewes Gifts, Treasures, Blooming Boutique, Just Lewes, Blooming Boutique Accessories, and Lewes Wear) in Lewes to have their “passport stamped” for discounts and free gifts!
Saturday’s event requires a ticket for entry, however the $45 entry price is more than worth it! With ticket purchase, you receive a goody bag and catered breakfast and luncheon valued at more than $100! Furthermore, festival attendees have the unique opportunity on Saturday to make their own glass bead with the assistance of a Trollbeads Artisan. Due to the popularity of this offering at previous events, bead making will also be available at Blooming Boutique on Sunday. Moreover, the world-wide CEO of Trollbeads, Patrizia V. Christensen will be attending the festival and presenting upcoming information on the brand. After the festival, join us back at the store Saturday evening for a Halloween dance party!
The main attraction of Saturday’s event will be the Trollbeads, including a special shipment from Denmark of one-of-a-kind glass and amber unique beads, with more than 15,000 on hand! There will also be a massive selection of retired and limited edition Trollbeads available on Saturday only. Trollbeads has graciously made another event bead, White Waters, exclusively for this Trollbeads at the Beach event at Blooming Boutique. Past event beads have more than quadrupled in value and we believe this is the best one yet – a must-have for any collection!
