Startup: Let's open a bead shop then ...

Ann - who is the one with all the talent for making things - suggested that a bead shop might be a good idea. Paul (whose only experience of gemstones came from reading this Dick Francis book) mumbled something that might or might not have been agreement and it all sort of spiralled out from there.

First things first, we needed to get some angle on what things are available on the market and how much they cost, and there was a trade show coming up in late February at the NEC in Birmingham. Of course, in order to get into a trade show you have to be in the trade, so we rather rapidly set up a company to do the trading.
