Lots of beads to choose from--the store makes for a unique Saturday afternoon excursion, but the prices are way too high. Plan to leave your pocketbook there because you will leave there wondering how you got suckered into spending so much. They are short staffed for the size of the store and amount of patrons visiting, so be prepared to spend a lot of time and patience there as well. Plan on at least 2-3 hours. When you finally find what you want, double the time waiting in line to pay.

Kelly,

I saw your exact same comment on ASK.com. You obviously must be a disgruntled ex-employee of the store. Have been shopping there for years and never a problem with anyone who works there. Yes, they do get extremely busy at times, but so does Walmart. So, why don't you go to Walmart and buy your beads there.

Yes the store is big. But, that is where the good of the store ends. If you watch the management and how they treat their employees you will stop shopping at this store. The very air is tense and uninviting, which can only be caused by a stressed work environment. Much of which is obviously caused by the supervisors and owner. Please if you see this happening make more comments and maybe the management will get a clue on a proper way to treat employees and create a true good shopping experience.

Unbelievable, humongeous, wonderful! Upon entry, one is simply overwhelmed with the amount and choices. Staff is knowelgable and helpful, but never overbearing.

Their walls are cover to cover beads. When they didn't have exactly what I was looking for, the lady took me into the back, to help me select a better item to purchase from their enormous stockroom. Talk about assistance! Aside from enough beads to go around the world 15 times, they also sell accesories to make bead projects (wire, project books, threads, etc)

I am an avid beader, so when i enteres Shipwreck Beads for the first time, i was overjoyed! For once, a store had literally EVERYTHING i was looking for! A friendly staff member helped me to find just the size and color pearls i wanted, and the various charms (flower pot, garden trowel, rose, glove, and sunshine) that i needed. It is a truly one-stop shop for all your beading needs!

No matter what your looking for to make jewelry, crafts or art projects, Shipwreck Beads most likely carrys it. I spent well over an hr just browsing and still didn't see everything they had to offer. I am very impressed with their selection of beads, charms and jewelry making material.

PROS: Huge selection, great parking, good prices
CONS: Hard to find

Shipwreck is a nationally known bead supplier that has the largest selection of beads I've ever seen in one place!! You want it, they've most likely got it. Shipwreck sells everything from plastic beads to handmade specimens worth hundreds of dollars. Besides the overwhelming selection of beads, they also offer thousands of findings and dozens of "how to" books. The choices are so numerous that you could easily spend hundreds of dollars per visit. This a true "destination" stop for anyone who likes beads.

PROS: Staff is VERY helpful and well informed.
CONS:

Shipwreck Beads is a great place to find all different types of beads, stringing materials, jewelry-making tools, along with books full of project ideas. They have a huge selection and variety of beads, ranging from Czech and Austrian crystals, to glass and plastic beads, and beads made from natural materials in almost every color imaginable. The pricing is reasonable, especially if you buy in bulk, the showroom is clean and inviting, and the employees are helpful. Getting hungry while you shop? No need to worry. The cafe' in the front corner has a simple, yet tasty, menu, with a place to sit down and enjoy your food and drink.
