Clothing in the front and beads in the back. They were really helpful and happy. Very patient when I change my mind a few times getting things to make my bracelets. A lot of selection and reasonable prices!

I just love Bead Paradise. It's almost an hour drive for me, so I only get there once or twice a year, but it's always worth the trip. First I shop in front where they have a great selection of clothing for women, including brands...More

Sophisticated, global, beautiful merchandise. Artists make one of a kind jewelry for sale. Authentic unusual beads and supplies galore to make your own. Upstairs is a treasure, too, with incense, candles, small international wares. A delightful unique place!

This store has a large array of beads of every size and color. There are also beautiful clothes, dresses, skirts, blouses, pants and more. If you want body lotions, powders and scents just peruse what this store has, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great clothing and accessories not found in most stores or shops, and limited sizes of each item so you won't see the same thing all over the place. Friendly staff.
