This bead shop is very cute, and you can tell that a lot of thought went into designing it to be welcoming and fun. It's not like any of the other local bead shops at all, but it's not perfect either. It is very much a "boutique" and the prices reflect it. If you're a novice jewelry maker or looking to have a different kind of party, this is a great place to go. This really isn't the place for anyone looking to buy in bulk or for the small business jewelry designer -- this is a boutique retail shop, and if you plan on making a lot of jewelry, I would look elsewhere because the prices are just too high. But, for the essential emergency finding , occasional project or party, this is probably the best choice in town. They have a nice selection of quality beads and charms, many you won't find elsewhere in the area at a similar type of shop.
Pros: Friendly, upbeat staff, good selection of charms, nice ambience, both loose and strung beads
Cons: Parking is pretty much non-existent, prices are a bit high, questionable knowledge of inventory by the staff
