Rockin' Bead Store!.
We just moved to Little Rock from Pasadena where I had easy access to several bead stores. I thought I would miss my Cali bead stores but this one ROCKS! Literally. They have a great selection of stone beads as well as glass, pearls and other unusual beads. The prices are good too - I expected them to be less than Cali prices (because of the cost of living being lower here) and they are a lot less. And no Bead Divas here - so far everyone I've met has been friendly and helpful. One was even able to look at a wire wrap design I was stuck on and figured out what I was doing wrong. This is definitely the bead store for me.
Owner NOT helpful -- but good selection.
I went there, and although I found the beads I wanted, I found the owner equally stupid. I had inquired about hiring someone to help me put fasteners on necklaces I had made. Instead of helping me, she just gave me a dirty look and told me "why don't you just learn to do it yourself". What she never bothered to ask is why -- I can't because the arthritis in ny hands is too bad! She's a real snot. Good beads -- overpriced, though.
