Do you have a print catalog?
Due to the large number of items we carry, new items that we add almost weekly and "special" items we offer it would be impossible to keep a print catalog up to date. It is also a cost that would be passed on to you by raising prices or charging for the catalog. We have elected to not have a print catalog, and our prices down.
Do you have a store?
We do not have a showroom at this time. We have committed to offering our customers high quality products and service through our Online Wholesale Beads website.
If I re-order, will the beads look the same as they did the last time?
This depends on the type of bead you are ordering. Handmade beads will always be slightly different from bead to bead. Czech glass beads are fairly consistent, but they can differ slightly in color from batch to batch. this is most likely to occur with two toned Czech glass beads, as the colors are combined while the glass is still molten. Swarovksi Austrian Crystal Beads are known to be quite consistent. It is very rare, but slight changes in color have been known to occur in Austrian Crystal beads.
Are your pictures accurate?
We do our best to describe and picture the beads on our website as accurately as possible. We are currently in the process of upgrading the product pictures on the site. However, depending on the device used to view the web site, the picture tone and quality may differ.
Do you have a minimum order?
Yes we currently have a $20.00 minimum order not including shipping charges. We charge exactly what USPS charges.
What if an item is out of stock? do you backorder?
We do our best to keep the website updated with in-stock items. On the off chance that an item has just gone out of stock and the site hasn't been updated, we will notify you right away and do our best to assist you in making a suitable substitution.
