A Better Place to Bead is a fairly large retail store dedicated entirely to the art of beading. It has an expansive selection of not only beads, but every other item needed to make your own jewelry; the center of the floor is occupied by six huge display of beads, while all the walls in the store are filled with additional beads, stringing material and other accessories for making jewelry. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable; they seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs and never lack in helpful tips to put together the right ensemble for you. The store has tables stocked with jewelry-making tools for customers to sit and work at. A Better Place to Bead also offers classes and does birthday parties!
