We have so many new lines and new items, it is overwhelming to try to begin listing them, but I'll try to give you an idea of what we just got in this past week or so.
Glitz - New designs of the Frosting and Icing, which are their lines of decorative rhinestones. Tiny round rhinestones in 12" strips, a large round rhinestone 12" strip paired with a tiny round rhinestone 12" strip, round "buttons" of rhinestones in several colors, arrows, words, etc. I think you get the idea. The main difference with this line is that these are MOLDABLE around different shapes, so you could outline just about anything with these rhinestone strips. AND, they pop apart so you don't have to worry about having to use up the entire strip at once. Just pop off what you need and save the rest or use elsewhere. Colors include clear, black, amber, pink, dark pink, red, light blue, dark blue, green, and pearl. A number of these sold while we were trying to put them into inventory and get them out on display, so hurry in to get yours before they're all gone!
