Beadazzled is a great bead emporium in the heart of Mt. Vernon. While the employees are very friendly, they take their beading very seriously. One thing to note is that you cannot carry around any bags or purses with you; given the tiny merchandise, they ask that you leave it with the cashier. Their overall selection is displayed quite beautifully, and it's augmented by various gift items like candles, crystals, and jewelry. You can also join their beading club, where after you spend so much, you get a flat discount on your next purchase.
