With only hours to go I would be remiss if I didn't introduce our friend Megan of The Peacock Bead Shop.
Raised by a family of Magpies, and having honed her shiny-finding skills as the Manager of Beadlush in Charlotte, NC, Megan Savors has amassed an impressive array of treasures over the years. When she moved to Denver in 2007, she used her procured baubles to create limited edition and one of a kind jewelry and accessories for other magpies. Two years of fervent creation left barely a dent in her hoard....something had to be done. The Peacock Shop began in March 2009 as an Etsy store meant to be an outlet for Megan to share her collection of pretty things with the world. Over the next year, it grew from a desk in her bead room, to a seasonal kiosk, to its first shop front location, then a larger storefront, where it's becoming well-known for its unusual selection, and inspiring surroundings.
