Some months ago one of my favourite online bead stores folded and disappeared into cyberspace. I really missed it. And I didn’t relish scouring the web for a replacement.
In my search this spring I re-discovered The Beading Room. I’d been to the site a couple of times before and signed up for their newsletter but had never bought anything, though I can’t remember why. This time, however, I took the plunge and placed an order.
What a pleasure it was to deal with Hollie and Brian Farrell. My only contact with them was by email but they made me feel like a valued customer.
My order was processed and shipped promptly and everything arrived in one package — no backorder blues. I appreciated the online tracking service too. The only down side? Canada Post. It took a lonnnnng time for the order to arrive in my rural mailbox but that’s a small price to pay for all those lovely bits of bling. 🙂
If you’re looking for beads and beading supplies online you might want to try Nova Scotia’s The Beading Room.
