NOTE OUR NEW ADDRESS!!!
933 Fifth Avenue
New Kensington, PA 15068
We will have a *LOT* of room available for Toyo this time, and he will be able to spread out, and show off more than ever before. We have moved our stuff into the 2nd level, where I had hoped to have the show, and where we will be having them in the future, but we have the whole downstairs area open.
The space will be about the size of our WHOLE OLD SHOP, and that means plenty of room to show off the beads, and for you to look at them.
As you know, he is a wholesale distributor, and his quality is awesome! The quality of his gemstones has gone up over the years, as he has learned to pick better quality from the cutters in China and other areas. He has also taken a love of the beads, so he is improving his own abilities.
Most people come to these shows and their ONLY regret is they don't have (or didn't bring) enough money! You want everything. Seriously.
He can take MC/Visa/Disc/AmEx.
If you have a tax id you can buy directly from him. Otherwise, you need to buy through us. Same prices, just you have to pay sales tax (it's the law). But, you don't need a tax id or to be in business, to get the great deals!
New Kensington is easy to get to, off 28, from the Turnpike, or a drop down from I-80. There are other roads depending on your location. We are right on 5th ave, one door down from the Citizens bank, between 10th and 9th street.
On street parking (no meters, they have no mechanisms). There is also a HUGE public lot on 9th street, again, no meters.
The area is a bunch of one-way streets, so 5th ave is one-way in the direction of lower numbers. When you get across the CL Schmitt bridge, you need to make a left on 4th Ave, a right on 10th street, then a right on 5th to our front door. Not as bad as it sounds. And a world of wonder awaits you ;)
Before he left after this last trunk show, Toyo set a date for the next one.
I delayed posting this until I was reasonably sure I would have a location.
It looks like we will be in our new location by that time!!
We won't be set up, we won't be pretty, but we'll have room for a show!
Hopefully LOTS of room! :)
I should have pictures of the new space soon, once we are 100% certain of the move in. I'm checking the space out again on Thursday, I think it's the final inspection by the city to determine what would be needed for occupancy.
We are moving to New Kensington, just past the Pittsburgh Mills mall on 28, or a short drop down from I80.
