Trollbeads Event: You Are Unique.

you-are-unique-simpleA Unique Trollbeads Event is coming to Tartooful!

Thursday, May 9th from 2 til 8

at Tartooful:  3183 Edgemont Boulevard, North Vancouver 604.924.0122


Over the years we’ve noticed that our discerning customers have a particular appreciation for certain types of bead designs… the natural stones, ambers and unique glass that each have their very own distinct personality are our perennial favorites.  At Tartooful we love to unpack a box filled with precious unique stones and glass, never knowing what surprise lies within!  So we decided that we would switch things up a little for our next Troll party, and focus on only our very favorite designs.


We’re bringing in an extraordinary selection of the best of the best:

  • Universal and classic core Uniques

  • Unique Ambers

  • Natural stones, both faceted and smooth

  • Pearls

  • Limited Editions such as the coveted Aurora Bangle

So if you’ve been looking for a particular pattern of unique, or a certain shade of natural stone, this is a wonderful opportunity to see an array of each one!


As always, we will present enticing Event Pricing Specials… a special Trollbeads gift with minimum purchase of three beads or equivalent, OR a gift of a sterling foxtail bracelet with the purchase of a decorative lock.

Don’t miss out on this fun event…. See you there!

Happy Troll Month!


Happy Troll Month!  We’ve kicked off a busy month of Trollbeads fun by choosing our very first winner in the “Show us some Love” online contest… don’t forget – three happy Trollies each week will be receiving a free bead from Tartooful all through February – and it’s so easy to enter!  Simply “Like” our page on Facebook, and then post on our wall about your dream bracelet.  It could be a photo, a description, a list of beads – whatever you can dream up… The first bead we gave away was a “Fossils” to go on Gitana Leone’s fabulous “Earth” inspired bracelet.  Show us some love, and you could be next!


We’re also super excited about some gorgeous new uniques that we just received.  We photographed them right away, and we’ve started putting them online on our Tartoofultoo online shop.  Take a peek and see how fresh & pretty they are…


We’ll continue to add new Uniques to the online shop as we get them photographed throughout Troll Month, so be sure to check often to scoop the very prettiest ones…

I’m off to Tartooful now: so much to do before our Special Trollbeads Event on Thursday,  so little time!

Universal Love: A Very Special Trollbeads Trunk Show

We are thrilled to announce our “Universal Love” Trunk Show, on Thursday, February 23rd, 2012, 2pm til 8pm!

The focus of this celebration is the Universal Family that is Trollbeads – and giving back to our global community….

We will be gifting a Unique Trollbead to each customer with a minimum purchase of three Trollbeads.  This is a wonderful opportunity to explore a large selection of fascinating  Uniques, and also to support Trollbeads’ efforts to provide a means for economically challenged communities to support themselves.

In the same spirit, Tartooful will give partial proceeds to Globalgiving.org.  We will direct the funds to a program which provides interest-free, micro loans to women in Uganda seeking to start their own business.  As a Mom who feels privileged to have a small business, this is a cause that is close to my heart, and I hope that our community of Trollbeads collectors will find it worthy of our support.

Of course, it’s a Tartooful party… so that means extraordinary selection, champagne & treats, relaxing and having so much fun with all our Trollies and Trollbeads!

So load up your bracelets, round up your girlfriends, and come have some fun that will benefit our Trollbeads family across the globe…

See you there!


The Troll comes to Tartooful Today!

This is it!  We’ve made it to the big day… champagne, home made macaroons, juicy trunk show specials and, of course, most importantly, lots and lots of gorgeous beads!  This is the day to splurge and snag that fantasy necklace, Troll Tree or Crystal Triangles that you’ve been mulling – because with the show specials you’ll be able to stretch your dollar and get some extras that you can gift over the upcoming holidays – or keep for yourself! Even if you don’t need a thing, come by for a visit, chat with other collectors in your area and treat yourself to a fun bead experience, we’d love to see you.

It all kicks off at noon and goes until around eight…

See you there!



10 reasons you can’t miss the trollbeads trunk show

The Little Black Box

1.  Huge selection: Tartooful will be bringing in our largest-ever trunk show order of fresh stock, including lots of gold, mixed silver and gold and precious stones.

2.  Juicy deals: spend $100 and receive a group 1 bead as out gift… Or purchase a decorative clasp and receive a bracelet as our gift.  Either way, it’s the smart time to indulge a little.

3.  Jo Burge, local representative of Trollbeads and Troll guru.  Such a lovely person!  She’ll be there to answer questions & give design advice.

4.  Jo Burge’s “Trunk” of stock samples:  Jo’s bringing her rack of beads along for your shopping pleasure, making the selection that evening even more spectacular!

5.  Sale prices on all other items in-store!  As a big thank you to all our favorite Trollies, we’re offering sale prices on all Tartooful goodies, (excluding art) for one evening only.

6.  Trollies.  The store will be buzzing with lots of passionate Trollbead collectors in attendance.  This is an amazing, accomplished, smart, *fun* group of people, and it always makes for a great evening.

7.  Cristi.  There’s nobody sweeter.

8.  Champagne, Pellegrino and decadent nibbles to tempt you while you play with all the sparkles!  (“bubbles in your glass to go with the bubbles in your beads?”)

9.  The Art of Anne Griffiths – if you haven’t had a chance to come experience her amazing paintings that are currently on display in Tartooful, this is a wonderful time to come enjoy them.  They are gorgeous.

10.  The holidays are lurking just around the corner… At Tartooful we specialize in finding the perfect item for all the “tricky-to-buy-for” folks on your list, so the Trunk Show is the perfect time to get a huge head start at sale prices and treat yourself to a “Little Black Box”, too.
