I stumbled into this shop without a reason, really. I saw they had beautiful beads for sale, and I'm a sucker for gemstones. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and while the store can get rather crowded with 'stuffy' patrons (only a few times I've experienced this, and it's usually on a Saturday) the staff always seems to smile. Not really having a need for so many beads, I only bought a few items, but their prices were reasonable. I love going to this store - it beats waiting for any online orders to arrive (instant gratification, you know) and I love looking through all the beads and findings. I would recommend this store to any one looking for a great place for beads, findings, wire, etc.
