Where to Get Beads, part 4

  I am continuing my exploration of different places to get beads. Today's exploration is Michaels.

Michaels has a section in one of their craft aisles with beads, plastic lacing, and keyrings. Here are some photos of what I found during a recent visit to the Michaels store nearest my home in Florida.

These first photos are of various bags of beads. They had a nice assortment of single colors, as well as color assortments.

Below are several assortments in large bags.

Michaels also had some beads in fun shapes, which can be fun for making bracelets or necklaces, or as a special feature in a pony bead critter. They also had alphabet beads with large enough holes to use with pony beads.

They also had a few bead organizers with assorted colors of beads. These are nice because they're already organized into separate colors, and the organizer is refillable. As with the other stores, they had a few colors in these that were not available in the bags shown above.

Michaels only had a couple of pony bead project kits.

Finally, they had some plastic lacing assortments, as well as some keyrings and lanyard hooks. 

I will start a new series soon, featuring online stores where you can find beads, string, and findings.

If you are looking for the widest variety of colors, give Bolek's Craft Supplys a try! They have 78 different colors of pony beads!
