I have been looking for a good bead store for a while now. I was really excited when I discovered that Breezy's Beads was only a couple miles from my home. However, I was a bit hesitant about going there after reading the some of the negative reviews about children not being allowed in the store. I am a single mom, and my three year old son goes everywhere with me. I can't exactly hire a babysitter for a 20 min trip to the bead store. I decided to go see for myself what this place was like, and whether or not it was true that children were not allowed in their store. When we entered the store the women greeted us and were very friendly. I asked them if it was okay that I had brought my son with me, as I was unsure after reading those negative comments from other customers. They were very kind, and told me that it was no problem that I had brought my son with me. They told me that they welcomed children in their store, and even had an area that children could sit and play with toys or draw pictures while their parents shopped. I think many of the negative comments must have come from people that don't pay attention to their children while they are shopping, and let them run wild and pick up everything. Needless to say, beads are an obvious choking hazard to small children. So don't be completely oblivious to your children and their behavior if you plan on thaking them there. They had an excellent assortment of beads, and their prices were incredibly affordable. You can purchase individual beads, or strands of beads. We will definately be going back there again. The ladies in the store were very friendly and helpful. My son and I had a great experience.
