Bored with the blah in the local shopping emporium? Yup, been there.
Nothing worse than buying a (so you thought) 'unique' necklace, only to
discover it elsewhere in a gazillion other colours. Bah!
So, in order to satisfy my thirst for jewellery that fit my style, I
started making my own. And that's where Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle Beads came
This shop was first set up back in 2010. It started out with me trying
to get rid of the excess beads I had from my jewellery making, in a vain
attempt to stop me being taken over by them.
It didn't work.
As sales picked up, more stock came in which meant I had more beads than
I started with. It then became clear that the shop needed a focus.
Realising that most of the beads on offer elsewhere weren't very
exciting, I decided to start selling beads that were unusual and less
My jewellery making days were still going, although I was vastly running
out of space and couldn't possibly wear all the stuff I'd made (unless I
wanted to look like I'd fallen in the jewellery box). So, the lightbulb
moment of hey, why don't I sell some of my jewellery in the shop?
suddenly dinged over my head.
And in a Twilight Zone-esque twist, Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads morphed into Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads & jewellery.
Wow, betcha didn't see that coming.
