I began collecting pieces for a store more than eight years ago when I was unemployed for a short period of time. Fear got the best of me so my plans were put on hold. I continued to collect my glass dishes and started working on building my bead boxes until my friend needed her shed back so I began looking for a place to open a store. Once the decision was made it all fell into place with the help of family & friends. There were many late nights when we counted & had to restring beads. I was back to work full time along with my part time teaching job so my days were pretty long.
The Beaded Pair store opened in November 2008 as a part time business. My inventory consisted of my personal stash of beads and continues to grow. A year and a half later, the store moved to a new location (7566 Gratiot) with better visibility, and continued there until the store closed late in 2014.
Thank you for stopping by! Please keep checking back, as the website is still under construction.
