Findings in Ann Arbor
Recently we had some down time in Ann Arbor and my friend Linda had suggested to me that I go to Findings and check out their seed bead selection. If you love working with seed beads, then you have got to check out this store! I thought I was in heaven, tubes and tubes of neatly organized beads by color, size, type of bead and a huge delica selection. I'm so happy to have found a place that I can find the proper delica color in a pinch.
Findings has been around for a while actually. I remember it being over in the area where the Trader Joe's is now. They had a smallish shop, and being a student I rarely made the drive out there, and there was the Bead Gallery right downtown near where I worked. Findings is now over off of Jackson Road, parking is abundant and the shop is not only huge, but well organized.
These two bead stores in Ann Arbor will give you a fantastic range of what you may be searching for to start or finish your next bead project. I highly recommend Findings for you seed bead selection and threads. They also teach classes in the back room so make sure to check out their website. The Bead Gallery is great for it's location, right in downtown Ann Arbor and also has tons of fun beads. I personally go there for their array of gemstones. As always happy beading and happy bead shopping!
