I really enjoyed this quaint little shop. I was able to customize a souvenir from my visits at lake placid. I also had some small children with grabby little hands, bad call. Although it's a bead place, there plenty of trouble for busy little hands. It's also a little pricey. But the product and service more than compensate for it... More

Very cute shop but walking in with 4 kids was a bad idea. Purchased one metal charm bracelet with 3 charms, one leather (?) bracelet with 3 charms, and one beaded bracelet...$60 later I was in shock. They are cute, the employees were nice, but the prices were painful for what we got!

Made 2 bracelets today. Fun times with hubby and kid! Prices vary depending on which beads you pick. For 2 bracelets and a pair of earrings the total was 65. The owner was so very helpful.

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours making a one of a kind bracelet. The shop owner was wonderful and very knowledgeable. And gave us a great recommendation for lunch as well!

A truly beautiful store in Lake Placid. As a single dad I appreciate the comfy seating, helpful staff and comfortable setting. My 7 and 10 year old girls made professional looking necklaces in great colors. Staff are soft spoken, friendly and great with children. The cost will vary but my two necklaces were about $45. What a nice break from... More

Took my 9 year old daughter and we loved it!!!! The two women who run the shop were professional, pleasant and very, very helpful. Nice well kept and very organized shop - many beads and accessories to choose from. Prices are reasonable and we walked away with two very cool bracelets! If you are looking to kill some time and...

OK, I have 2 girls, so I guess this place with beads for necklaces and bracelets appeals to half the population. It is a nice size, with lots and lots of bead options, some more $$ than others (some are silver, Swarotski crystals, etc). My two girls got to pick out the bead they wanted, and one made a necklace... More

Just Bead It has everything from gorgeous, faceted sparkly beads to kits for kids... the environment is very laid-back and cozy, like you're having a craft night with a friend! All that's missing is a glass of wine and you comfiest slippers! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they are there to help you from start to finish! A great... More

Had a good selection of beads for such a small store and were helpful in showing me the different sizes and colors available. Looked like they give classes on jewelry making as well.
