I love vintage beads and cabochons. I probably love them a little too much, in fact. I have a stash overflowing with lovely treasures.
I've been selling vintage on eBay for a few years, and it's been a great experience. I love it when customers send me photos of what they've done with their beads. I enjoy sharing vintage and sending these pretty little gems out into the world.
There's one sadness, though, and that is when I get to the end of of a particular bead or cab. Today, for example, I set up my last listing of these beautiful green marble glass Buddha cabochons:
Sometimes I find a few more of a bead or cab, but usually once I sell out, that's it. It's not just that it reduces the variety in my eBay store; it's the sadness of not being able to share more of them.
The good news is that I have found more of several different small matte glass leaf cabs such as these matte topaz leaf cabs:
Farewell, lovely Buddha cabs, you will be missed!
