21 REASONS FOR BUYING BEADS
REASON NUMBER TWO: Buying beads keeps our economy going. It is our patriotic duty to support bead stores.
Trust beaders to be on the cutting edge of political savvy-ness. We've understood the patriotic advantages of stocking up on beads for decades.
It's practical, too. Everyone knows that they need to keep some basic colors in their supply -- black, for instance. Which means you need black seed beads in 15/0, 11/0, 8/0, 6/0, delicas, cubes, Czech and Japanese, as well as rounds in different sizes. And we need shiny black and matte black. That's just one color!
Even though we don't think you need a reason to buy beads, sometimes you're with other people who don't understand. For those people, explain that you have to be ready when inspiration comes your way. So you have your blue collection, green collection, etc.
