From the moment I walked in, I felt like a kid in a huge candy store! SO much to see! Very cool gifts, and beads GALORE! I could have spent all day making jewelry. The staff is so helpful...they will teach you how to make anything, and it's easier than I ever thought! The atmosphere is fun and relaxing at the same time. This is a great way for busy moms to take a break. I noticed they have gift certificates available...I definitely plan on giving them to my friends as gifts. I know they'll love it!

....and that all rolled up in one fantastic store. The owner and her staff, charming as can be, make you feel warmly welcomed the moment you enter. It can feel a little overwhelming at first due to the generous selection of gems from Czech crystals to sterling silver beads to Swarovski crystals to semi-precious stones! That's quickly and easily overcome, however, once the staff lends a helping hand. There are also fun and funky gift items, a coffee bar, chocolates, flat wallets, gift cards and so much more. They also offer the option of having parties! The after-hour parties are GREAT fun...just invite a few friends, bring in some munchies and wine and bead to your heart's content! It really feels like a mini-vacation! This is definitely a fantasy place one must experience!

Shopping at Bead Happy involves so much more than just searching for great jewelry! The color and music are stimulating, the semi-precious stone beads are awesome and the atmosphere is so uplifting. I was hooked after my first visit. Penny and her crew helped me select pieces that represented MY style. I never realized how much fun beading can be. I will never "buy" jewelry again. Now that I know how to make jewelry myself I feel good about wearing new designs. (Unless I'm in a pinch...then I'll have Penny custom make it for me!) Kelly W.

This is a really cool store to go to, and they also have kids parties there as well to design necklaces or bracelets....
they have a huge variety of any type of bead you would need.
THE PRICES ARE GREAT! and the gal who runs the place is awesome as well! located downtown waterloo...parking can be a pain...but walking a bit never hurt anyone.

PROS: large selection of beads
CONS: parking a pain
