We're a town full of bead stores, but this one is the best. It's more than just Bead World's wide selection of Czech glass beads, Japanese seed beads, and high-quality findings in a variety of metals. True, we love the large selection of pearls, glass baubles, and ethnic ceramic pendants. But the staff here is so friendly that we always end up feeling like an old friend rather than just a repeat customer. How is it possible that no matter who's working, they always seem to remember us and our area of beading interest from our last visit? Interesting classes taught by knowledgeable teachers are nice, but what we love very most about Bead World is its hyper-organization. Both locations are tidy and well-kept, and beads, tools, and clasps are all neatly arranged by media and price. Even the clearance aisles at both stores are carefully arranged. If only the rest of the world were like Bead World.
