No Reservations required – you can now drop in. I can say, without
reservation, we’d be delighted to see you. Unreservedly.
Come in and compare colors, fondle the beads, and just bask in the glory
of so much beady goodness.
In-store pick up for online orders is available now, curbside pick up,
and of course, shipping.
Sadly, no carrier pigeon delivery service is available. The pigeons kept
trying to eat the beads, and we don’t want to talk about sparkly bird
This week – we’d like to tempt you with size 12/0
Czech seedbeads. Imagine my surprise on opening a stored box of
seedbeads and thinking – these look different. Comparing them to the beads
in the store … and lo, size 12/0s. Smaller than 11/0s, not as small as
12/0s as well, with a facet for a little sparkle.
So maybe try some size 12/0s for a bit of contrast? Or use with the
others for some interesting textures!
Online classes are not going away. Students are enjoying them, we are
thrilled to provide learning opportunities to folks who can not make it
into the store under any circumstances – we have opened doors for folks to
live too far away, have a physical disability, or just can not travel –
In the spirit of that – watch for our upcoming Virtual Back-to-Class
Meet-the-Teachers event. Details to come soon!
Don’t forget to check out the Manager’s specials, on sale to make room
for new stuff. These are selling fast – don’t dawdle! Scoop ’em up!

Curbside Pickup procedures
Online orders, pre-paid only, can be picked up curbside 11-6, Monday –
- We will call you when the order is ready.
- If you are local – you should see an option to select “Store
Pick-up/Walk in” in the shopping cart as the shipping
method. You will not be charged for shipping, even if you
are under the free shipping limit.
- If, for some reason, you do not see the option for “Store
Pick-up/Walk in” – say, your address on file falls outside the
computer’s definition of “local,” but you still want to come and get
it, then you can choose “call-back” as an option, and tell us you want
to pick it up in the comment box, and we will remove the shipping, and
call you for payment info.
- We will call when it is ready and arrange a pick-up window of time.
Pick-ups will be on Mondays to Saturdays, 11-6 pm.
Shipping: Canada Post states on their website: “Customers should anticipate delays as
important safety measures, including physical distancing, means it takes
longer to process heavy parcel-volumes.” Sigh.
Phones are being answered Monday through Saturday (11 am – 6 pm). If you
need answers about does “this” go with
“that,” just ask and we will try to help.
We are pleased and proud to be part of your creative journey, relaxation
and coping strategy – at any time – pandemic or not.
