Can anyone recommend bead shops in Las Vegas?  Due to time constraints since I
am at convention, I would like to know which have the best selection of beads
and beading supplies and also lampwork.  I have found several on the internet
but it will be difficult to decide which one to go to.

Thanks,
Mary

I was in LV recently. I didn't have time to go to any bead shop, but I
did see the "Race for Atlantis" 3D IMAX ride and highly recommend it!

I look for bead shops in  Vegas and the best I could find  was looking in the
yellow pages with very little luck.

I don't know of any bead shops.  There will be a Bead Renaissance Bead
show at the Palace Station Hotel, on June 4, 5, and 6th.  I think those
are the dates.  It's a good bead show.

Hope to see you there,

Pati Walton

I live in Vegas.  True, there is little selection here.  I order most of my
supplies from out of state.  There are 3 I'll recomend -
 Love R Beads on Rainbow Blvd btwn Flamingo Rd and Tropicana Ave - good basic
supplies, good selection of trade beads,  great person named Flower who works
there  (the owners are a little flighty though).  They have various classes.

Beads Plus on Decatur Blvd off of Sahara Ave.  Good basic supplies, good
selection of charms, hemp supplies, nice people who work there.  Good selection
of delicas.  Good selection of sterling.  Various classes.

Beads Findings on Decatur off of Flamingo Rd.  Interesting selection of
everything.  Have to kind of hunt around and get a feel for the place.  Odd
owner - sometimes nice, sometimes comes off as rude.  Could probably find
something different here.

I believe all are open 7 days a week. All are pretty close to one another in
this large city - not too far from the Strip, especially if you take Flamingo
Rd or Sahara Ave.  I fyou have the time, then go.  But, depending on where
you're from, it may not be anything unusual.  All shops are kind of small.
Need more info, let me know.  Prices aren't great either.

Happy Beading,
Jenn

I just submitted a long post but thought of adding this... when will you be in
Vegas?  There may be a craft fair that you may want to attend.  Let me know.

Hi,

I was in Las Vegas last March, just about a year ago.  I also looked
in the phone book for bead stores.  Maybe we didn't see the same things
because I found 3 fabulous stores that are all on the same end of town.
I liked one of them so much I went back twice even!  They are all around
the area of Sahara and Decatur, the general area, I mean.  This is away
from the Strip.  Unfortunately, I don't remember their names, but look
in the phone book and call around!  Have fun,

-Michelle

Thats a good one! Also look up Beads Galore over in Tempe, and
Scottsdale Bead in Scottsdale. Beads and Adornable has
good classes, Beads Galore is the biggest bead store I
have ever seen, and Scottsdale Bead has a decent selection
of delicas.

Hi! I've been lurking and think this is a great newsgroup!! I plan to go to
Arizona the second week of April to introduce my nieces to beading -- and get
them ***ed -- and would like to know if anyone knows of any good shops near
Mesa? Thanks for your help!

HI!!!! I am an ameture bead person and I live in Phoenix.  I have been to two
shops both in Scottsdale, which is a city close to Phoenix.  They are The Bead
Box and Scottsdale Bead Supply.  
The Bead Box sells mostly individual beads like czech hearts etc. and seed
beads in little bags.  I guess they are the ones that put out the "Bead Lovers"
catelog.  

Scottsdale Bead Supply sells beads in mass quantities, hanks and tubes and
stuff.  If you want I can list all the bead places that are in the phone book
for you or something.

Oh, you are in luck.  Lots of bead stores, but the best is Beads Galore, rooms
and rooms full of stuff, heaped on tables, hung from thewall, and dripping onto
the floor.  Prices are good to wonderful, and you can find things there that
really get your creative juices going.  Addresses/phone numbers in Lapidary
Journal and the Phoenix phone book.  It's on Priest Street, tucked away in a
funny little business park.  Call them for direction.
