Yes, there is a bead shop in Faribault, Minnesota!
Did you know? Glass Garden Beads is a Trifecta business?
Business has evolved into many facets.
#1. It is a walk in brick and mortar bead and hobby shop. This is where you come to, buy beads, supplies, learn, stay and play. (Right now with a mask.)
#2. It is a wholesale business. GGB is a National Marketeer of Bead Kits for the Hobby industry. Yes, we have many kits but not all of them are purchased nationally by other mainstream businesses to be re-sold. We celebrate when other companies add the Glass Garden Bead Kits to be included in their product lines. That is why I posted that a kit-set from Glass Garden Beads this week was picked up by another company. It's exciting and it's happening here in Faribault. It means we are growing in our National Distribution.
#3. Glass Garden Beads is a On-Line shop where kits and bead mixes are sold to other bead hobbyists. Our niche' is in seed bead kits and coordinate grouping of beads sold in mixes.
When I'm asked how's business? My answer is usually..."It's like being on a roller coaster." Ups and downs but always exciting.
Last January we expanded into a second space to handle all the bead kit production and fulfillment.
