A great find! by
Just Passing Thru -
This place may have a great selection of beads and findings, but the best thing they have is their staff. Very friendly, nice, knowledgeable & helpful. Quick to offer assistance, but didn't hover. I really enjoyed my visit there and will defintely stop again when passing through Portland!
just an observation by
just me -
After driving from the vancouver area to find just the right component to my beading project, I was once again treated very rudely by the girls behind the counter. After I asked a question at the counter, one of the girls yelled at the lady that was out on the floor to help me. Thank goodness this lady was very knowlegeable and helpfull. While the shop did not have exactly what I wanted, she was able to help me make some other choices to add to other projects. My opinion is that the two girls behind the counter should go and the one who helped me run the show!!!
Great Selection by
"A Bead Source" has a great selection, they always have what I'm looking for and if they don't have it they always offer to order it.
Rude Staff by
I have visited this store around 8 times within the last couple of years and have found most of the staff quite rude and abbrasive.
rude sales people by
Reina Sherman -
I was in this store with my mother and I was at the back of the store looking for beads while my mother was at the front asking one of the sales clerks about something, when the other sales clerk, who was not involved in this conversation prior yelled at my mother. I was in the back and heard this while the owner was in her office much nearer to them with the door open and did not do anything about the situation.
Everything is Here by
It doesn't get any better than this. This little store has everything as well as the latest trends and unique gifts. Friendly management and helpers are very knowledgable. A mainstay for any serious beader.
