If you're looking for bead stores you MUST check out The Sassy Bead Company which has two locations in downtown Ottawa.

The first is at 757 Bank St. in The Glebe.  The Glebe is a really cool neighbourhood with lots of great shopping and eating, you should also check out The Papery for some great paper goods.

The other location is at 11 William Street in the Byward Market - another great area.  The market it filled with lots of shops, places to eat and on weekends vendors set up stands to sell their wares.

Hope that helps!

Kind of in between those 2 neighborhoods is a stretch on Bank Street called Centretown. It's got a couple of nice stores featuring Indian wares and fabric that might be of interest. There's also a cool vintage store called Ragtime on Flora and Bank.

In addition to the Papery in the Glebe, there's also a good eco-friendly paper store near there (the name escapes me, but it's not a big area -- if you're down that way, you should be able to find it.)

If you go to the Byward market, be sure to go to these stores on Dalhousie St. -- Amuse, Soho Betty, and Attic. They all feature goods made by local consigners. Great shopping!

Oh, and there's a small Chinatown area on Somerset Street West, in between Bronson and Preston. Could be fun and provide some unique (and cheap) shopping. Even further west on Somerset is an area called Hintenburg which has some interesting 2nd hand stores. But if you don't have your own car, you might just skip it. It's not as convenient to downtown and the other areas.

Have fun!
