I'm back in Northern Virginia for winter break. Does anyone know of any good bead stores in between Woodbridge, Virginia, and Washington, DC? I make that drive five days a week to go to work, and it'd be wonderful to take a bead break.
Thanks!

I know this is way late, but Beadazzled is an awesome store (though I may be a bit biased; I work there)!! Smiley

Next time you're back (or for anyone else looking):

Not exactly in the way of Woodbridge, but there's also a Beadazzled in the Tysons mall, and Star's Beads in Vienna, both of which are pretty good. 

And if you want seed beads, it's totally worth it to head up to Accent Bead in Rockville.  Their selection is phenomenal.

Potomac Bead Company just opened a store in Old Town Alexandria on King St. It's fabulous!

I recently found EZ Beads in Centreville, just off the 66/28/29 intersection. While it isn't a big place, it isn't a chain store either... and that matters to me.

They specialize in pearls, but have a lot of cloisonne, semiprecious gemstones, and crystal as well.

One of the things I really dig about the place (aside from the dirt-cheap prices) is their willingness to  display and sell the work of small-time, unknown artists. It really gives the place a good vibe, and reinforces the owner's expression of interest in bettering the informal (as in non-organized... unlike Northern Virginia Bead Society) community. They have meetup groups once a month, which I have always had a great time at.

The first time I went there... Jenni, the owner, bought me lunch. Talk about first impressions! lol Shes a character for sure, and really puts her heart and soul into the shop.

No attitude, low prices, super-friendly atmosphere, what more could you want? Smiley
