Our Story:

Beads ‘N Things was first established in the Village of Pittsford in 1968.  Over the decades, the store transitioned from a bead shop in the 1960’s to a bead and craft shop during the 1970’s and 80’s.  We purchased the shop in 1984 and, after a decade of selling craft supplies and beads, we saw the demand for beads and jewelry making supplies begin a rapid  ascent.

In 1995, we converted the shop back to its origins of a full-service bead shop!  After donating all of  the leftover  craft products  to local charity organizations, we reorganized the shop to make room for beads, beads, and more beads!  2008 brought about more updates and changes along with an extensive expansion of our inventory that continues to evolve, expand, and flourish today.

Thank you!
