2017 - 2019: Bead Abode, Inc. was created after a chance meeting with the owners of Bead Time Sarasota.  After the incredibly generous assistance of the Bead Time owners in teaching us what it takes to give customers an enjoyable beading experience, we took over.  During these three years, we focused on adding fun new classes, a new inventory, and increased space for beaders to create beautiful jewelry and forge new friendships from our prior location  at the Palmer Crossing Plaza Shopping Center right next door to Painting with a Twist and very close to Bealls Department Store and Office Max.


In March, 2020, the Corona Virus Pandemic presented us with an impossible choice, keep the store open or put our customers and friends at risk.  While we have closed our physical store location and moved to an online store, we are currently working to deliver the same high level of service through the use of technology.  Our customers have always been there for us and we plan to be there for them, under any circumstances.
