Am personally a fan of adding a variety of beads to my baskets, so here’s a growing list of beading supplies
If you are ever in Santa Cruz, make a pit stop at Paradise Beads (they don’t have a website). It’s a super little shop, with all sorts of treasures. The owner goes to estate sales and gathers up vintage beads, as well as having a good supply of new beads on hand.
Shipwreck Beads (online store), seems to have a great selection of super cheap beads. Some of the super cheap beads that i ordered were a little cheezy so not sure i’ll use them, but think with a better understanding of sizes, and product it’s a great resource that doesn’t break the bank.
