I used to bead A LOT and I have a favorite place to buy my beads and other finding. They've just announced they are closing their shop. It's a sad day because I remember driving on several occasions to Sacramento, CA with my friend Rebecca to shop for beads. We would make road trips to beadbabe and a few others and make a weekend out of it. Then we'd pour all the beads out in our hotel room that night and laugh in happiness at all the great new beads we just bought. We would say, I hope we don't get in an accident and our beads spill all over the street, because we would make sure the traffic stopped until we picked them all up.
So, if you love beads and you're looking for some good deals, you won't be disappointed in their quality, especially their crystals. I comparison shopped their crystals with firemountaingems.com and they are quite a bit cheaper. Some items are not cheaper even with their sale so you may want to do your own comparison shopping on your items before you hit the purchase button, to make sure you're getting the best deal you can.
