Dawn's has a great array of beads...glass...pottery...hand made...semi-precious jewels...and the array of colors is not to be believed. the beads are beautifully displayed in various containers, showing a rainbow of colors, textures, sizes and shapes. The prices, while on the high side, are reasonable when you think about the other options in the area for beads...poor to say the least. BUT...(and you knew there was going to be a "but")...the customer service here is poor. I have been in this business on more than one occasion, but on all of those visits I have left wondering if they really wanted my business or if I "bothered" them by visiting the shop. This is of course my opinion and while I now order online all of my beads, you might want to check out this store if you only need a small amount of beads...it is hardly worth S&H to order only a few. As always it is your decision...just my opinion...happy shopping!

PROS: beautiful array and lots of choices
CONS: ...poor customer service

This is the place to go for beads! They have beads from all over the world. They also sell finished beaded jewelry. I love looking at the jewelry that they have made so I get new ideas for my jewelry.

It is very easy to pick out your beads. You just get a little wooden bowl from the counter and pick out the beads that you want to buy. Great store to visit!

I loved this place! I did not like having to locate a parking spot and then walk back to the location. That is the only draw back. Besides the fact you get carried away when you see all of the gorgouse beads they have.

PROS:
CONS: hard to find parking

This is a very nice store to visit. It was overwhelming seeing all of the choices of beads. They are sterling silver and not plated silver beads. You are paying for good quality beads.

The parking is not good. You have to park in a ramp and walk. They will validate your parking ticket with purchase.

classes are offered for a fee.

PROS:
CONS: no parking downtown
