This is probably the best place to buy beads in the Southern Maryland area. They have a nice sized store and beads are organized in very neat and attractive manner. It's easy to find things, except for the items behind the counter, which you would have to ask for assistance. The staff is there to help you but they do get busy at times! The store is so fun to shop in that I'd easily spend more than an hour in there just browsing the beads! Very good seed bead and Swarovski crystals selection.
