I have just had an email from a company called Rocking Rabbit and they have opened a bead shop in Ely Cambridgeshire Yeah!!! Not too far from me, first free day and i'm there!!!!
I have a catalogue from this company which has some lovely stuff in it but i've never gotaround to ordering from them.
If anyone gets there before me tell me all about it please, its almost worth ringing in sick to go there!!;)

...at Rocking Rabbit. I've used them in the past when i first got into beading, and found them really inspiring. Lucky you having a shop of theirs nearby......

I luuuurve Rocking Rabbit [or The Bouncing Bunny as they are known in our house for some reason]. I've been buying from their mail order ctalogue for years n years, and then was chuffed to find them at the craft show at Olympia this year. They always have that something a bit different to everyone else, and good prices too.

:confused: does anyone know of bead stores in west yorkshire. i mainly buy via internet but occasionally went to yum yum beads in leeds- it seems to have gone!!
Just nice to have a browse sometimes with real beads to feel the weight etc.

I've just recently found out that Yum Yum beads as moved to the Thornton Arcade, and they have a website too. I loved going in there when I lived there!! and was definatly spoilt when I moved up here and realised there was nothing 18 months ago.

There is a small shop in the merrion centre, I cant remember what it is called though, and the gentleman there is incredibly helpful. He is right opposite the alley way going into the market area.

Embsay crafts has moved to Roseville road and when I left that had good staples like swaorvski, seed beads and Delica's and a lovely lady called Mary was encouraging them to widen their bead's.

There is a shop over at Skipton too but not sure exactly where either, and I've not been back down for 18 months so seeing as Yum Yum's has moved so could the others.

Hope someone else comes along with more specifics for you.
