More than just a bead shop


Update as of 4/3

As most of you know, Florida is now under a Stay at Home order. Unfortunately this means that we no longer can allow customers into the store to shop in person. That does NOT mean that we can’t  keep everyone beading though! We are a creative community by nature, so we’ll just have to get a little more creative. I will still be at the shop fulfilling orders and requests. We can offer both curbside pickup and shipping. I’m also going to be doing various kits and offers on Facebook, so be sure to look for us there. Here is everything you need to know:

Pickup Hours

Store hours for curbside pickup and call-in orders will be Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00-2:00.

All April sessions have been cancelled

  • Currently the only event still remaining (optimistically!) on our calendar is the Dichroic Glass class that was previously postponed until Saturday, May 2. If you signed up for this, you are still registered. If we need to push the event out further again, we’ll notify everyone.
  • If you had a current Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club card with remaining sessions on it, we will extend all expiration dates by however many weeks we are not able to hold sessions, so you won’t lose anything.

You can still get beads even if you can’t come in to shop, so don’t be home bored!

  • You can order on our website:
  • We temporarily lowered our free shipping offer to all orders over $25 (exceptions would be for bulky items that don’t fit in a bubble envelope)
  • If online shopping doesn’t work for you, simply email or call 727-495-0803. Let me know which project you would like to make and an idea of the colorway you would prefer, and I’d be happy to put something together for you.
  • Although I’m not going to be ordering inventory at the usual rate, I will still be placing smaller orders on a regular basis to restock the basics and accommodate requests. If I don’t have your first choice of bead on any given day, either I can pick out a good alternative, or look into ordering it if you’d rather wait.
  • It’s just me alone here right now; unfortunately I won’t be able to have help from my wonderful team at this time, so please be patient and I’ll work on each request as it comes in.

Lastly, I want to thank all of you who continue to support our small shop during this difficult time — we’ll all get through this together.
