Private Shopping Now Available by Appointment
Wednesdays & Saturdays 12-2pm

We are now offering select opportunities for private shopping.  Not everything in the store is on the website and there is nothing like shopping in person for beads! You'll be able to take advantage of the Wholesale Gemstone Program, and select from anything else in the store, whether it is on our website or not. One of our staff will help you find items and make suggestions, as needed.

Currently we are offering 30-minute time slots Wednesdays and Saturdays, from noon to 2pm. If those times don't work for you, please let us know and we'll see if we can accommodate. Masks that cover nose and mouth without having to keep pushing it up with your hands will be required, as will the use of hand sanitizer upon entry. Please cancel if you may be getting sick.

To schedule your private shopping experience, please email us at We'd like the joy of seeing you and supporting your creative endeavors. Thank you for being part of our inspiration!
