Looking to offload some of your beads? If so, we offer store credit as trade for your beads. We take gemstones loose and in strands, fancy plastic/acrylic, vintage glass, and metal beads. Depending on the bead size, the quantity per style can not be less than what can fill a 3-inch x 4-inch bag. 

To trade, drop off your beads in a stable/closable/re-sealable container, box, or bag. Attach a piece of paper with the date, your name, phone number, and email. Someone will get back to you with 2-3 weeks with the credit offer. Credit is then applied onto your customer account and can be used anytime. Traded beads are priced at 18% of retail value.
