ginkodesigns' Shop Announcement

Clearance sale! Shop is closing Aug 17. The shipping charges have not changed, and they work for the amounts in a normal order. With the sale, large orders will have a high shipping charge, which I have been refunding the excess. Don't panic. The 1/4 inch tubing in brass and aluminum is a six pack--the picture shows only one. I am too lazy to take a new picture of a six pack for the clearance sale. Yeah, I said that.

SHOP CLOSE: It is hard to say this, but I will be closing this shop due to my medical issues. You all have been wonderful, and I will miss you greatly.
August 10, I will open the shop with clearance prices on brass, aluminum, and copper tubing. Good deals. At this time, it appears that I will not have silver tubing to sell.

If you are looking for supplies to fit a popular collector chain (Pandxra),look for the Big Hole Beads labeling or click on the Big Hole Bead Supplies link to the left under Sections.

Since the supply side of Ginko Designs is so popular, I wanted to give my glass work its own space. Come on by http://ginkobeads/ for glass beads and jewelry.
