Beading is a popular craft in the Portland area. Part of the reason it's so popular is because of our rich Native American History. This is the only bead store own not only by a woman, but by a Native American in the Portland area.
In addition to being a supplier for many of the craftspeople in our local Native American community, this is also a business that contributes to the young people in our community. I learned about this bead shop through the Native American Youth Association and was encouraged to support it because of their support for the youth. Their selection is large, their prices are good, their staff is friendly, and even as a non-beader I was compelled to buy some pretty things!
