I went out to lunch with a friend Saturday and while we were walking around looking at some of the shops in the area, she said the magic words – “Oh, I think they have a bead store around here.” I’m sure there are lovelier words than these, but not many. Of course, I had to go.
The bead store is called More Than Just Beads and it’s in Williamsburg, VA. It’s not a very big store, but bead shop owners are clever at packing a lot of loot into a small space, and this store is no exception. There were oohs and aahs and shiny and pretty and gorgeous everywhere you looked. This photo shows just one wall of beads. There are more.
I exercised amazing restraint and only bought two strands of beads. I deserve a certificate or tiara or something for that, don’t you think?
It’s nice to find out about them. I’m very lucky to live in an area that has a number of excellent bead stores, each with their own strengths and reasons to pay a visit.
