This is a fascinating little store in down-town Raleigh, filled with wonderful things you didn't know you needed. One of my friends is a beader, and she LOVES this store as they've got quality beads, and a knowedgable, helpful staff. When I visited I was almost overwhelmed by the choices, but if you have a plan and stick to it, or at least as close to it as you can manage, you'll be fine. Alternately, plan on spending several hours admiring tiny bits of glass, metal, and fancy rocks. Too much fun!
