I got turned on to Beads of Pardaise thru this site, and have been hooked ever since.
Although ""cheap"" or ""bulk"" are not words that apply to this store, the selection is very diverse, and for an avid bead collector like myself..........heaven! It is also one stop shopping for me because of the wide range of trade beads, unusual glass beads, gemstones ect. but also Buddhist amulets and prayer beads, silks, lacquer (gifts for all my friends)!, and collectible/ antiques, which are not my personal passion but I love to appreciate them there. The staff is very helpful and I felt attentive to my questions and needs. I asked one clerk who told me the store was around for twenty years!!!! already....I guess that says alot about the quality of this store! I personally love it and highy recommend it!
Pros: selection, attentive service, high quality goods
