Shipwreck Beads Informative - Wonderful Place - Bead Shop
LACY, WASHINGTON -- In the early 1990's I shopped at a tiny bead shop in Olympia, Washington. While the selection wasn't huge, it was a great experience and the people there were a great help, finding the items I needed.
UPDATE: April 2006.... OMG.... This place is now in Lacy, WA and it no longer takes 15 minutes to go in and get what you want. When we were in WA on vacation last year, I decided to visit their "shop"........SHAZAAM......aisles and aisles and aisles...you get the picture....in the two weeks we were on vacation, I spent no less than 18 hours there and I still don't think I saw everything! This place is absolutely HUGE!! I've never been so impressed by a bead shop in my life! Customer service is wonderful, and food at the snack bar is great! I get a yearly catalog from them and frequently do online orders, or I call the orders in. Delivery is near always within 3 - 5 business days and if I order say three strands of one bead and the sales person sees I can get a better and cheaper deal by getting five stands, they tell me. You really get more for your buck here.
Needless to say, I wish I could spend more time in their new location and have the funds to get all the beads I fell in love with.....if you're ever in the neighborhood there, check them out.....you won't be disappointed!
