Current Store Location Closing

Posted on June 19th, 2019 in News by |

Our current store location is closing the end of June. 

The neighboring business, Plumb Gold, wants to expand and purchased our building May 1st.

We will keep everyone posted on what’s next. We’ve got some fun ideas!

  • In the meantime, our inventory is 25%-75% off.
  • Open bead night will continue, the first Tuesday of every month from 6-9pm. Locations will be ‘pop ups’ and posted on our website and facebook page.
  • We will continue to do shows and our retreats. 
  • We will be at the Milwaukee Bead Show in October and host our October Bead Camp at DeKoven the 18th -20th .
  • We will no longer be taking in jewelry repairs. If this service is re-established, we’ll let you know! We need to focus on other areas of our business.

We are very excited for Austin and his team at Plumb Gold as they expand their business and reunite our buildings back to one ownership like when it was built in the 1860’s!

THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING PART OF THE FUNKY HANNAH’S EXPERIENCE!  Stay tuned for what’s next!!!

She looks like she’s resting, but she’s dreaming up what’s next! Stay tuned!

Be sure to pop in at Funky Hannah’s, 324 Main Street, check out the latest ready made jewelry or be inspired to take a workshop.  Artists will be at the torch in the workshop space, demonstrating how fun it is to make glass beads, from 5-9pm.

All of the fun shops, galleries & museums are open late for the First Friday of every month.

While you are here, be sure to head around the corner  so you don’t miss the hottest spot during First Fridays – Hot Shop Glass, 239 Wisconsin Avenue.  Watch local artisans turn molten glass into something fabulous right before your eyes.  April showers bring May flowers so the gallery is filled with lovely glass inspired by and useful for flowers.  Paperweights, sculpted flowers, vases and wine tumblers will be made with floral themes during demonstrations from 4-8:30pm.

Cabin Fever? Come Create in our Workshop Space.

No charge.  Really.  Use our creative workshop space in the back of Funky’s and create with a bead shop at your fingertips.  Wish you had that one bead in just the right color or size…not a problem.  Need just one?  We have tables full of single purchase beads!  Mix it up.  Try something new.  Use our tools.  Bring in a beverage.  Or a snack.  It’s all good at Funky Hannah’s! 

Not sure where to start?  We have dozens of free patterns to share with you.  Get what you need and create it! 

This is an open studio, not a class with staff dedicated to instruction.  But you know how helpful the Funky Gals are.  Plus we like to create too and just might join you!
