  • Bead display - Retail

    Hi all,

    I am hopefully going to be opening a bead shop in Kent soon and am trying to find display ideas for beads that I can use. The only thing I can think of at the moment is handmade woodsquares all joined together (the idea of me making them is filling me with dread!).
    Do any of you know if anyone makes prefabricated displays for beads or anyone used anything????

    Any help or advice would be very gratefully received

        thanks for that, I have already got small jam jars for semi-precious stones and crystals, but would like something more open and proffessional looking for the bulk of the beads.

        Have already liked your facebook page Drew, so maybe in touch!

          OK no probs as I said if you get stuck I could try and help you out, but I'm sure you will be able to find small trays somewhere closer.

            Hi Carla - have you thought of part bins? They come in all sorts of sizes and colours and are quite reasonable if you shopp around. They make beads easily accessable and you can also stack them. We store all of our stock in them and when we have vistors to the unit they are easily accessible. Our packers find them easy to use too.
            Kind regards,
            Paul

              Try Trish on here as indivjewelistic as her shop is set up with the wooden squares you're talking about.

                Personally I decided to have very few loose beads in my shop, mostly all bagged up.
                I sell the wooden trays you are talking about on my website which I use in the shop and I also use the tray inserts from the Really Useful Boxes

                Might be worth your while visiting some bead shops and looking at how the display their stuff to try and make up your mind?
                Recently a customer who visited the shop said no two bead shops are alike and she seemed to have visited a faire few!!

                  Beads Unlimited have quite a range of stuff for shops, including the bead boxes you mention, in 3 different sizes (I think!). The also do starter packs which include beads and pendants and a lot of there beads and findings are available in branded packaging. The do a catalogue as well if that helps.
                  Too many beads not enough time!!

                    How about something like a bead ladder? Basicallythink of an abacus ... A long upright rectangle of wood with removeable dowel pins that go across to hold the beads (dependant on the hole diam in the beads). If you are interested I can give you a quick schematic of what I mean and the cost would be small to produce it ... let me know

                    Asking me to make you a shelf is like asking Michealangelo to creosote your fence.
