I have compiled a directory of Bead Stores in the State of Illinois. This directory includes all the stores outside of the Chicago Area. For Greater Chicago area stores please see (insert link here)
I wish to help support these local bead stores as many bead lovers agree its more fun to buy beads they can see rather than order online viewing just pictures – color and finish are so important to beaded creations!
If you’ve been to one of these local bead stores of Illinois please leave a comment with a review about the store. What is their focus? What makes them an awesome bead store to visit?
