What have you snagged during the annual Magpie Gemstones New Year's Sale? I've enjoyed reading online about what various designers have gotten with the 20% off on everything sale. Many have posted photos of what they made with their Magpie Gemstones. Wow - you should see them! I purchased a number of strands of this amazonite is various shapes and sizes.

Here's the deal. During this sale, which is still gong on, 20% off is automatically figured on your cart and there's not a magic dollar amount you need to reach to get the discount. Normally, you would need to purchase $200 to get this level of discount.

Even if you have already purchased during this sale, it would behoove you to keep watching since Szarka keeps adding new beads all the time. I really enjoy seeing what they unearths from the warehouse and offer to customers. If you see something you like; however, it's a good idea to grab it before it is gone. As you know, Magpie Gemstones, purchases a limited amount of each bead and when they are gone . . . they're really gone and we don't usually see them again.

I probably should remind you about free shipping, which is also a great reason to buy from Magpie. We get free shipping on any order that is a minimum of $39. Let's see, 20% off and free shipping on my $39 or over order. It sounds good to me. How about you?

Saling for you, we are Magpie Gemstones.
