Our featured online bead store for this month is Shipwreck Beads.
Owned and operated by the same family since its founding in 1969, Shipwreck Beads was first located in a modest 750 square foot building on the shores of Mud Bay in Olympia, Washington. Originally called "Shipwreck", it began life as a nautical themed antique store that just happened to keep a few trade beads in stock. When Shipwreck's original owners sold the store to their children in 1982, the beads quickly took center stage, and Shipwreck Beads was born!
