More Bead Stores...Suburb Style!

Even though some of us doubt the existence of life outside the confines of a five mile radius of downtown...there is! Today we explore explore a few bead stores in Sacramento's diverse bedroom communities. We will start in Folsom, then traipse over to Roseville and finish our exploration up in Davis. So hang on for the ride!

It is the same website for both stores! I have never actually had the pleasure of going to either of these stores, but I have gotten very good intelligence that they are both wonderful! Especially the classes;) They offer a variety of classes at both locations and you can even shop online...awesome for those of us that do not live in the immediate area. Take a class from Rain if you are going to take a class - she is an amazing talent with the beads and the wire!

A Better Place to Bead

This store is located in Davis at 132 E Street Davis, CA 95616 and their phone number is (530) 759-8038. The name is not a link because as far as I can see they do not have website=( Too bad for homebodies like me...but there are some very complimentary testimonials on both Yelp and Davis Wiki. It looks like they offer a place inside the store to work on your projects during business hours...yeah!!! That is a real advantage for beginners because then you can get help in finishing a project from a real person. I hope some day I have the pleasure of visiting this fine establishment.

Well thanks for joining me for another Sunday of adventure in local bead stores. I leave you with a picture of what can happen if you bead shop a lot!

The small bear on top of the massive bead collection is named Ned and he was made by Missy Ballance of Mohair Circus.
