Calling all Local Bead Stores!


The Beadhive in Ayer MA is my local bead store, run by my friend Cyndi Wright. Well, there are great local bead stores (aka LBS) all over the country, but I don’t know about them. Sure, I can google some search terms, but seeing their web pages online is not the same as walking into them and talking with the owner and the other folks who work there.

Wanna help me out? Maybe you are an LBS owner, or you have a wonderful LBS nearby that you visit with some regularity. Would you like to see it written up and promoted here? Just drop me a comment or an email and let me know about it!   cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces)

On Wednesday, I'm going to share the list that I already have of fabulous places, all submitted by happy customers!

I’d love to have a picture of your store, including you and your staff if it’s at all possible. Other than that, I need to know where it’s located, if it has a website, and what makes it a special place to you!

Hi Cindy

This is my go to bead store when I need a fix:

Beads And Something More

beadsmore.larson@gmail.com
Doug and Diane Larson

I featured them on my blog about a year ago with pics of the inside.

see it here http://beadsandbirds.blogspot.com/2008/11/answering-my-own-challenge.html

Anyway, they have every semi precious gemstone you could want and are THE most friendly helpful bead store owners I have EVER had the experience to know.

Please add them to your list.

In case you would not know, Mishawaka is near South Bend, Indiana.

I have a tiny little bead store called Bead Soup in an old converted cotton mill called Savage Mill. It is located in Savage, Maryland.
I love seed bead stitching so I have cornered the market on size 15/0's. We are starting to get into bead embroidery and needle felting.
I have a collection of whimsical items such as MyElements which is a collection of hand painted acrylic compenents, Bead Me A Story which has flexible bugle beads made out of polymer clay and needle felted animals that are as cute as can be.
There are lots of classes being offered, many in Japanese designs, anything spirals and bezeling inside of pendants.
Bead Soup
8600 Foundry Street
