A Place To Get Lost InRecently, I was introduced to Beadniks, a chain of bead stores started by Sally Roesler - "Sally started her bead wholesale catalog in 1989, The Bead Goes On, on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard. Ten months later she opened Beadniks and began the pursuit of a personal dream - to create a bead store like no other." (Beadniks) In addition to Martha's Vineyard, Beadniks' are now located in Santa Monica, California, Chicago, Illinois, and Bloomington, Minnesota at the Mall of America.
While, I have not had the pleasure of experiencing Sally's Beadniks locations, I have been able to experience the magic of her little bead shop in Virginia Beach, The Bead Goes On. I was able to shop for exotic beads from Thailand, Nepal, and Indonesia along with other great beads.
The store was truly a hidden gem; it did not look like much from the the outside, but once I got in the store I enjoyed myself for almost 2 hours. I did not want to leave. The beads were beautiful, the atmosphere was peaceful, and the customer service was excellent.
