HappyLittleDestash is taking a short break
Note from seller
I had to close the shop sooner than anticipated due to a family emergency. I am hoping to reopen the shop as soon as my move is complete. See you then! Katrinka ❤
Sorry we don't have anything like that.
SHOP S-M-I-L-E REPEAT!
Welcome to the Happy Little Destash!
A place where you can find vintage glass beads, vine beads, seashells, pearls, gemstones and more all arranged by color 🌈 and sold as single stones, minimal numbered sets and short strands. My strands start and end in charming little silky bows 🎀. I carry a variety of items for D.I.Y. projects. I am a USA 🇺🇸 based seller in the state of Pennsylvania and most items that I have in the shop are of limited quantity. This shop is a way for me to let go of items that I don't have a purpose for any more. I'm hoping that my happy little beads will find some new creative owners who will make good use of them!
Bead all that you can bead!
Thank you for shopping small,
To see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower; hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour. William Blake, Auguries of Innocence. Stanza 1

Frequently asked questions
Reservations are available for new and established customers, free of charge. You have 2 weeks to purchase your reserve. If for some reason you can't make a purchase please let me know as soon as possible so that I can cancel your reserve and give someone else a chance. There is also no restocking fees if you cancel. If you reserve something at a listed SALE price it will stay at that price at time of purchase. Coupon codes are not included because they expire.
ALL RESERVES ARE PRIVATE. I do not list anyone's name for privacy purposes. Listing will read- RESERVED - and have the date of reservation listed so that you can keep track of the time. If you prefer I can deactivate the listing until you are ready to purchase. Just ask me.
The items in my shop are of limited supply. I will do my best to list as much information as possible. All Items are sold "as is" and I do not accept returns or exchanges. All items come from a smoke free environment.
If you have a special request or need a different quantity, please ask me for availability before placing your order. I'm happy to accommodate if possible and will create a custom listing for you.
Remember, if you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me before leaving a poor review. I'm sure there's a way to turn your frown upside down.
I ship items - Monday through Friday via USPS and your package will be delivered to the post office by 6:00 p.m. - at the very latest after it is posted as shipped. This shop is closed on weekends. Any orders placed on Saturday or Sunday will be marked pre-transit and will ship on Monday. (Holiday dates excluded.) Expect shipping delays if you order an item or item's around the Holiday's.
☆ If you purchase several items at one time, I will reimburse any shipping overages for same day purchases ONLY. (Anything purchased on a "separate day" will not be considered.)
Once a package is hand delivered to the USPS it is out of my control and I am no longer responsible for it. Please contact your local post office with questions.
SHOP ALERT -
Please carefully read full description of an item that you are interested in before making a purchase. You can locate the full description in the item details section of the listing. Measurements are in length and only close approximations. I string most items on 28 gauge wire but, that does not limit the item to that gauge wire. If you want to know if an item you are interested in fits a certain gauge that you are working with, send me an Etsy message and ask me. I'm more than happy to help! All of my strands start and end with charming little silky bows...my shop only. Please do not copy my wording or my ideas. TY!
Occasionally, I will send gifts with your order and/or I will reach out to customers and offer secret discounts.
Just a short note to let you know that most pictures are taken using natural light and in hand photo's are shot at different times of the day. Some days are sunny and some are not. Different lighting situations may or may not affect the color of each photo. Also, when I photograph opals, or any stones with labradorescence, aventurescence or schiller, keep in mind that I am capturing a split second of what is showing in that lighting situation, it is ever-changing.
ONLY IN MY SHOP
All listings are arranged based on a color system to help my customers make design choices. I put a lot of thought into my shop and work hard at trying to be unique and helpful to my customers. I know how important the Art of Jewelry is to them. In my shop, you can easily use an analogous color scheme for items by choosing colors that are next to each other because they pair well and create serene and harmonious jewelry designs.
These color schemes are often found in nature and they are pleasing to the eye. I have first listed an ACCENT SECTION for all of the accent colors. Accent colors are typically White, Gray, Black or Brown and they are followed by a colorful RAINBOW SECTION of dominant and supporting colors.
