It's May and we've got plenty to share with you! We are so excited about the Trunk Show that we redid the newsletter theme! Because of this event, we won't be having classes the first week of the month. Never fear! We have class favorites for the rest of May. We've also expanded our inventory with new items including geodes, magnetic bracelets and unique finds from a personal collection we purchased! We hope to see you in-store this month, but if you can't make it, be sure to visit us online on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and our website

AN ABUNDANCE OF STONES
 
 
 
It's never a dull day at Touchstone! We got a gigantic shipment of geodes in a range of sizes. Shortly after purchasing that bevy of geodes, we bought out a personal collection featuring many gorgeous quartz specimens! The collection includes a lot of unique pieces that we're not sure what to do with and many polished stones available for sale. If that weren't enough, we finally restocked magnetic bracelets in four colors! Plus, we're up to our ears in new seed beads. Stop by the showroom to browse our new additions!
