This *redbalifrog* post brings breaking news regarding the retirement of *redbalifrog* charms as the newest collection, Eclectic, Exotic & Romantic is expected to be released on February 22nd. Seven beads are considered retired as of today and will no longer be produced by *redbalifrog*. Retailers are allowed to sell these charms until they run out, so there is still time. This is the largest retirement I’ve seen from *redbalifrog* and it just shows the thoughtfulness and intent by Amanda to carefully curate the brand.
One of my absolute favorites will be saying goodbye, but it will be au revoir not adieu for the frangipani as it will be remade with a smaller opening in the future. I have heard complaints regarding the large diameter of this bead, but I actually don’t mind the opening at all since it creates such a wonderful jingle on my bracelet. My readers will know that if there’s one thing I adore, it’s charms that jingle! 🙂 The Thai troll was also on the top of my wishlist that will be getting the axe, so I will not delay in ordering this little guy!
Discontinuing select pieces certainly brings a level of excitement to the fan base as well as creating some urgency in getting the charm you’ve been eyeing before it’s gone for good. *redbalifrog* generally does not carry large inventories so if there is something you like on the list I would recommend getting it sooner rather than later. What are your thoughts on this retirement?
