Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake Fall 2018 Overview

This charm bracelet blog brings a complete overview of the promotions and exclusives for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake Fall 2018.

We’re now a little over two weeks from the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake Fall 2018 event. It’s our most ambitious event to date and we’re all looking forward to welcoming you to Ohio (or our website!)

At Great Lakes Boutique we always try our absolute best to accommodate our online community as much as those travelling to meet us and the online schedule will be published in the week ahead of the event.

This post is designed to bring a summary of the event beads, exclusives and promotions associated with this event. I’ve already read some mis-information being spread on social media so essentially if it didn’t come from us, it’s potentially not true.

Hotel Group Discount

The event takes place at the Residence Inn Mentor and clicking this link will take you to booking with the group discount applied.

You absolutely do not have to stay on site but it’s very convenient to do so.

For anyone tempted by last minute flights the airport is Cleveland Hopkins with airport code CLE. There is no hotel shuttle but Uber and Lyft are all operational in the area.

Halloween In Store Competition

For those of you in store do note there will be a competition for the best Halloween themed bracelet. Start planning! (Or wait and whip one up with all the delicious new beads.)

Trollbeads

Grace will be joining us once again for the event and alongside her will be a Trollbeads glass artisan. Of course the highlight is the Trollbeads Pumpkin Caterpillar as the event bead but aside from that we will be offering the full range promotions possible and we’ll have extensive stock. For those of you visiting us in store, it’s the first event where you can view the new Trollbeads Autumn 2018 collection too.

Trollbeads Pumpkin Caterpillar

The Trollbeads Pumpkin Caterpillar will retail at $45 and sadly we cannot offer this bead to our online customers. We do appreciate the frustration but please understand this is out of our hands.

For those of you in store there are plenty and they will be available throughout the weekend!

  1. Frederique

    Hopefully attendees would be able to pick more than one….!!!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m sorry, more than one what?

      • frederique

        Event beads , in order to balance our bracelet

  2. Cyndi C

    Thanks for putting everything in one place, Victoria. My only question is the purchase limit on the individual beads. Looking forward to seeing you again!

  3. David

    Is there a date/time set for when these will be available online? I’ll sit by my computer and wait for them!!!!

  4. Paula

    Amazing line up !!! Fantastic job to all involved !!

  5. Marion Cleff

    Hello, is there another schedule like the last Beadbash?

    • endangeredtrolls

      As per the article the online schedule will be released the week before the event

  6. Martha Olavarrieta

    I’m looking forward to everything you have to offer. Can’t wait. This will be my second time attending.

  7. Holly

    So no True Beadz discount promo then?

    • endangeredtrolls

      No 🙂

  8. Sharon

    What is the house supposed to be and what happened at tentwentyam??? Is it the Bates house?

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s a clock tower I think. I’m unsure. That bead is not themed for Halloweeen. It’s Julia’s own vision of building a town.

      • Sharon

        Oh, I see. It is a lovely bead, but thought maybe it had a darker Halloween side! Thanks!

  9. kather

    Why is there no True Beadz discount? There always has been before. And no Treasures? Goodness! Is Great Lakes dropping the brand? That would make me so sad. Please say it ain’t so.

    • endangeredtrolls

      We can’t really control stock. The very limited number of Treasures received will be in store only as there’s not enough for there let alone online.

      • kather

        That seems odd. GLB cannot place an order for what they want? Oh, well. Hopefully the people in attendance will get some lovely True Beadz. Thanks.

        • endangeredtrolls

          I think everyone knows Julia has had a tough time recently keeping pace with the demands for her normal stock without adding Treasures to the mix.

          Sure we can order 2000 Treasures. Doesn’t mean she could possibly manage it. Perhaps if she stopped making anything else for months in advance.

          Everyone has been very honest about the stock shortages over the past few months.

  10. Laura underwood

    Question!
    Can you pick out what spacers you want? Example: if I order a twisted bangle – can I order copper or Oxidized spacer? Or are the spacers that go with the bangle required for the promo?

    Im sorry if this is a silly question. Remember I’m new to trollbeads and this will be my first bead bash! Im sooo excited!

  11. Tasnim Anwar

    There aren’t any special beads from Alex for this event? Thanks

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hi 🙂

      ACA Kreations is not actually one of our brands. Alex doesn’t have any retailers so no 🙂

      • Laura underwood

        I was talking about Trollbeads….

  12. Luna

    Will $500 on Ohmbeads over several orders qualify for the free Ohm Beads Dirty Love Wounds or does it have to be $500 in one order?

  13. Faye M

    I just wanted to say that I have now received my beads from the event and they are fantastic 🙂
    The midnight moon is my new favourite glass, it is stunning! I can’t wait to see what henhouse release next.
    Also, I have to say OMG dirty is fab. I actually like it more than the original silver version. Perfect for my dark souls bracelet.
    Thanks all at GLB for some amazing beads that I was able to purchase online 🙂
