I was so excited to find a bead store, but was very disappointed after walking in the door. The beads are what you can find anywhere and the prices are high. I can find all these beads at a retail mail order company at about half the price including shipping. The quality of the beads is average, but it's what I can find anywhere. The store is nicely lit, so you can see what you are getting. Many of the beads are behind counters, so you have to ask to see a lot of the product which is a pain, but I can understand the shoplifting threat in this location of town. If I ran out of a certain bead and was on a deadline, I might buy here, but that would be the only time.
