Last summer my niece told me about Bead Trails and when I visited this summer, I decided to check it out. Well, an addict was created! We had a ton of fun visiting places in the Okanagan Valley and collecting beads (and great memories). I decided to visit the store in Summerland as I needed to get that quail bead! I had a lovely visit with the ladies running the shop and learned all about the origins of this great fun idea. They even took my picture with Sid and posted it on Facebook. I managed to get 24 beads on this vacation and look forward to next summer and getting more beads as I visit more attractions in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. A word to the wise...I overloaded my leather bracelet and it broke. Consider getting the metal bracelet, or be reasonable and get one of each type! Lots of good times and great stories as each bead evokes a memory of people and places. Fabulous idea!
