Long established bead and craft store Bead Crazy is re-launching as Bead POP where new owner Alex Penter is offering a weekend of fun activities to celebrate the opening.

A new craft experience is opening in Aberdeen this weekend as the bead and jewellery making supplies shop formerly known as Bead Crazy is re-launched as the all new Bead POP with a weekend of fun events that will include special offers, new products and complimentary drinks.

The fun starts at the St Andrew’s Street shop on Friday with a special late-night opening, from 7pm until 10pm, when customers can view and purchase from a range of new products and ask any craft-related questions they have, while enjoying a complimentary cocktail.

On Saturday there will be a classic tea party, complete with tasty treats and goody bags for the lucky first 10 people through the door.  So get along early!

The fun continues on Sunday with the first of Bead Pop’s new regular Sunday openings, from 12 noon – 4pm, when there will be a last chance to get a 10% off flyer, valid for two weeks, with a £10 purchase.

New owner Alex Penter, who studied design at the Robert Gordon University and was the previous shop supervisor of Bead Crazy before she recently bought the business, said:

“Even if you’ve never tried any sort of jewellery making before, I’d encourage you to come along and try something out.  We run activities for people of all abilities and you might surprise yourself by how creative you can be!

“This opening weekend is a great opportunity for people to come down, have some fun and check out the new look shop.  And, for our long established customers, I think they’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amount of new and unusual beads we’re now stocking.”
