Beads of all shapes, sizes, color, and material (including bone and metal) are on hand here -- your biggest problem will be narrowing down your selection!
This is what Frida Kahlo's brain must have looked like, and I say that in the best way possible. This charming, hospitable place has everything from beads to bones. If you don't want to be bullied and intimidated by those gigantic bead shops, come here.
only in the most desparate situations... – this isn't a place for avid, professional, or serious beading enthusiasts and jewelry designers. it's a place to pick up a few pieces at random, or in desparate situations (when all the good places are closed, like on weekends). everything is drastically overpriced and the employees are total snots. the windows are somewhat interesting, sometimes. you can't buy anything in bulk - everything is picked and priced individually. i'm surprised it's stayed in business so long.
