Our current store location is closing the end of June.

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!
