Where are you located?

Do you have a showroom or retail location?
Unfortunately, no. We're considering opening a showroom someday so we can meet more of our customers in person, but we're just not ready for that yet :) We know it can be difficult to buy beads without being able to see them in person. If you have questions regarding our products, please contact our team. We'll be happy to work with you to select items you'll love! If you're not happy with any item, you can always return it within 30 days for a 100% refund.
Can you tell me when an item will be restocked ?
This can be a tough one to answer. Every two weeks, we receive shipments from manufacturers including: TierraCast, Vintaj, Nunn Design, TOHO seed beads, Beadalon, Soft Flex, and others. If you're looking for this type of brand name product, we'll most likely have it back in stock within two weeks. If you're looking for something more like gemstone beads, pearls, designer Czech glass, tagua nuts, or recycled glass, it can take longer because those shipments arrive less frequently. We try not to be out of any item for more than 30 days, if at all possible.
