About us

Our Mission

 Southern California Local Bead Store Association’s mission is to promote ethical business practices, extend mutual respect for all local bead stores, demonstrate diversity in the marketplace, and ensure independent, community-focused brick and mortar retail bead stores. The association also aims to create programs that promote and advance the interest of the retail bead store industry through training, education, research programs and vendor support. 

Our Committment

 Our commitment is to the customers who shop the retail brick and mortar bead store. We are dedicated to ensuring the local bead store offers service, knowledge, variety, quality, and value during each shopping experience. 

Shop Local

Make a plan to shop at independently owned stores. Not only does it help tax dollars in one's community, but helps keep the small business owner's store open. Local stores often offer great advice and would love to help.
