This store used to be a lot bigger and have more selection. I'm not sure if they're under new ownership or what. They still have a really good selection of seed beads in all sizes and colors.
You have got to see the large selection of beads and classes - What fun!!
The store has a nice selection of chinese crystals, but not a good selection of swarovski crystals. I had a hard time getting a hold of staff to help me with the bead case, and some of their items are arranged in a manner that is difficult to get what you need from a tangled bundle. Most of their prices were great, but some of the findings could have been priced at much more affordable rates. I will go back, but I think there are better places to find findings.
You can count on finding something here to fall in love with. They carry a lot of local artists' beads and lampwork, as well as the usual bead store stock. Great tools and books. One of the best things about this shop is the staff. They're all knowledgeable and very nice/fun. They take the time to help you and are happy to give advice/general instruction. The wonderful selection of finished pieces is inspiring. I've been to a couple of their classes and I highly recommend them.
U Bead It has some great beads and their prices are fairly competitive, although their metals are very overpriced. The quality is good, not great. However, I have to agree with the other reviewers...their customer service is very poor. The cashiers are just barely polite and they will avoid making eye contact when you want to see something in the case. Met the owner or manager once and she was the same, so I guess she doesn't see what the customers see. I prefer going to other bead stores with a friendlier attitude and customer-friendly prices.
