I have been in that store many times and have spent many dollars through the years. I have never found rudeness from staff on inferior products. I am a full time beader. I recently relocated to Texas. So I am now going to do online shopping there. I know that if you are having a bad day you will find a bad day. The staff has always been very helpful and understanding even courteous. Please understand they are doing their job. They may be having a bad day. I would rather shop that has what I need instead of looking for staffs faults.

I love this store. I have been to several other stores in and around the Sacramento area. The service is great. I have read the other reviews about rude service and about the owner. All of those claims are absolutely false. You get what you give out in this world. If you are so sensitive that you take simple instruction as bad service, then it must be you. Why would the owner need to share her experiences with each product? When would she get any work done if she did that with every inexperienced customer that came into her wonderful
store? Somethings are impossible. Ubeadit has lots of books and
classes if you need a lesson. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself if your a rude customer. You might find the reason you are
such a sad individual. Don't attack this establishment by writing a bad review online. Go inside the store an voice your concerns or just simply go across the street to Michaels and try your luck with the sad selection and high prices. Peace...

Great variety/selection but definitely BAD customer service. I have had the feeling that they were "following me" around the store. Weird!! Sometimes they do have good deals on pearls and I have purchased Chinese porcelain necklaces for a few bucks. I hope that the Owners read these reviews because many people will go online to buy instead of this store. We leave our $$ here, we are not getting paid by them. Too bad. Not the only choice anymore. Try mid-town beading stores too!!

I've been in this store twice within the past month, once when it was busy and once when it was almost empty. Both times I got excellent help finding what I wanted, as well as on-the-spot instructions. I even was directed to buy a less-expensive product, with an explanation for why that item was better than the more expensive product. Their assortment is wonderful. I strongly certainly recommend this store to anyone with an interest in beading.

lots of stock and nice finds but service people are real bad. rude. I just go there to check out the price so I can compare with shopping online and I found that the price is not as good as the online price. I often buy my jewelry findings and craft supplies online, no hassel. I buy all my jewelry findings with this nice girl who own the online shop on etsy. if you need to find low price, high quality beads, charms, pendants, I personaly recommand you to go take a look at this online store.

you ask her a question and she reply very quickly and with smile.

I have bought A LOT of merchandise from this store, because it's close to home and they have a really wonderful selection of seed beads. Don't even ASK to see the Swarovski crystals...they are behind the counter, and if you don't know what you are looking for...forget it. The staff is incredibly rude...especially the owner. She will not share ANY of her knowledge with you, except for a price. I've been to other bead shops and they were always willing to at least tell you a little bit about the projects that they have made...but not this woman. She was so incredibly rude. I, like a like of posters here, have had to wait for a long time to get checked out, and then they treat you like they are doing you a favor. I also have been over-charged, caught the mistake, and they acted like it was MY mistake...geez. If you do go there, just make sure you know what you want, because you won't get any help at all.

They have a really awesome selection of beads and findings but because of a couple of very rude staff members, I don't want to shop there anymore. I practically got yelled at for setting something on their glass countertop. I used one of their trays and got in trouble because I didn't do it properly - they don't want you putting items in the price slots in the tray - they want you to bring it to them in advance of checking out so they can check prices and bag up. Who would have knew? They could have been nice about it instead of rude.

Rude, rude and then more rude. The worst employees ever. I will not buy anything from them ever. P.S. Michaels across the street has some of the same items for about half the price.

The best selection of beads in Sacramento. This store has everything you could every want, many crystals, seed beads, threads, tools, stone, glass etc. I have never needed to go to any other shop because they always have what I need. The staff is wonderful as well. The shop is busy many times when I go however I never leave with out getting the help I need. Usually if they are busy I only ask for assistance once and they get to me as soon as they can. Love this store and plan to continue shopping there.

I have been shopping at U Bead It for about 5 years now, and they have the best selection of beads. Every time I go there I always have a project in mind. When I ask for help in selecting the products for my projects the staff is always more than helpful and very kind. Not only do they help me with my questions they also offer great suggestions for future projects. I have never encountered not one of the staff be rude to a customer and I am in the shop at least once a week. I love to bead and this hobbie is more than addicting. Anybody in search for a large variety and helpful staff, I would definitely recommend this shop.

U Bead It I would have to say has the BEST selection of beads around. And the prices are very reasonable. On the negative side, the staff isn't very friendly. I have been there a few times, the only one that has been friendly is the guy that works there. Everyone else just seems like I am bothering them whenever I needed anything. And once I tried to return something, the lady behind the counter acted like it was a huge issue and gave me a little attitude, even though I had just purchased the item the day before and was still in it's original condition. U Bead It really needs to work on their customer service skills.

I wish we had this big of a store in nbay area,The staff didnt seem rude to me.Although it was my first time there I knew what I needed n I was done. I just walked around, gazing at all there supplies! I will be going back to shop again even when its a 2 hr ride for me.so I'd hope they'd be pleasant employees. So hopefully the cranky one everybody seems to complain about is no longer employed. maybe get her midol?

I shop at U Bead It because they have a great selection. But, I have also found the staff to be a little rude and they act like you are bothering them when asking for help in finding something. They do have a great selection of classes and talented teachers. (mah)

This store has a great selection of products. I purchased several strands of beads plus seed beads each time I went there. There was only one time any one offered me any assistance. And when I did ask, I got the impression I was bothering them. There were times I felt I was ignored too. Several times I waited just to pay for my items the clerks would see me standing there and continue with their conversations until they decide to wait on me. This last time I went there it was obvious that I was being watched and that made me feel very uncomfortable. I just thought it was me but hearing from other beaders who went there they had the same experiences I did. The staff is not only that helpful but some of them are not very knowledgeable at all...esp. the guy that works there. Each time I asked something he did know or just say we don't carry those. Also, if you ask one staffer a question and then another one the same question you get different answers. I don't think I will be going back there unless I am in desparate need for a specific thing that i cannot find elsewhere. I don't normally go through the trouble of writing reviews..let alone a bad one but this time I felt the need to do so this time.

I ended up not buying anything in this store because the staff was so incredibly rude. When I walked in, a staff person shoved a tray at me and growled that I had to use it even though I said I was just looking. A staff person followed me around like I was a criminal. Considering the extensive video surveillance they have installed, I felt that the close personal supervision was over the top.

I understand that U Bead It carries some things that no one else in town has so if you must, go there, but don't expect to have a good time.

Pros: Good selection of beads and supplies
Cons: Rude staff

The selection of faceted beads has gotten a lot smaller- quality not so great.

Great pearl selection.!!

I too have had trouble w/staff not being friendly- as well as getting the wrong shape of ss wire from the clerk behind the counter- let me tell you it was impossible to return it. When I brought it back the clerk gave me the owners phone number to call. So I just took the loss.
I went back again and was again dissatisfied...I now have two bags of french earwires that keep breaking when I try to open the loops- and I'm concerned I'm going to have trouble again with trying to return them...

This is one of my favorite bead stores! Great selection on seed beads for a very low price in all of Sacramento. The other beads are priced better than other stores for the amount you get, but they can get pretty pricey unless you catch them on a sale. The sales are really good (ie.. 50% off) Some of the staff is nice, but on the whole not very talkative or helpful to the customer and not very knowledgeable about beading projects. This is a great store if you already know what you need for your beading needs.

This store has a nice selection of seed beads. They offer lots of samples of jewelry and have classes. The staff was rude during my entire visit. I felt like I was being followed like a suspicious teenager and two staff members held a lengthy personal conversation while I was waiting to be checked out.

this store is laid out perfectly. when you first walk in and see the "ethnic" beads on the right and then the crystal on the left - you will be amazed. they have the very best selection in town and some of the nicest clerks working there. they are helpful knowledgeable. what i like most about this store are the displays. the bracelets and necklaces look as though they should be in the finest boutiques. the work of the staff is impeccable. they also offer classes!

PROS: everything

I visited this store a few times for thier variety of natural stone. On my final visit, I tried getting the attention of a sales person to get something from a display for me, but didn't have any luck. I waited in line with the items I had in hand I wanted to buy, and asked the sales person if he could get the item from the display case to add to my purchase. Without a word, he quickly walked over, brought it out, and rushed back to start ringing up the customer behind me. I walked back to the register, and after the sales person gave me a little attitude, I decided it wasn't worth shopping there anymore.
