Following on from my recent post giving details of a new Limited Edition Trollbead,‘Festeggiamo’, this post brings details of its wider release.
Initially it seemed that the bead would only be available in store at selected Italian retailers. News then came that the bead would also see a US release, known as the ‘Party Time’ bead, continuing the run of ‘country specific beads’ from last year. Over the past few days, European retailers have also been accepting pre-orders for the bead, to ship from 2nd March (the same release date as the US).
To date, no information has been available with regards to a release of this bead in the UK. I am waiting for confirmation as to whether or not this bead will indeed be offered to UK retailers, and will update with this information when I receive it.
For those of you in the UK who really want this bead, I would recommend ordering from overseas, just in case it does not become available in the UK. I have ordered mine from Perlen – they are retailing the bead at £22.45 GBP with free delivery to the UK. From my previous experience, orders arrive within a few days, not much longer than UK internal mail. Here is the link for those of you looking to order:
