History

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.

2020:  

In March, 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic presented a number of challenges that led to the difficult decision to close the store location at Palmer Crossing Circle.  During the time our physical store location was closed, we continued to offer online sales and virtual beading classes.  

2021:  

In August of 2021 we moved into a new, much larger, space at 4053 Cattlemen Road, Sarasota, FL 34233.  Because the space was occupied previously by a grocery store, we are still working on modifying the space to fit the needs of the store and our customers.  We look forward to opening soon and offering our customers a store with almost twice the square footage of our old location.
