Welcome to Country Beads

Bringing the World of Beads to You! 

Tucked into a space on 4th Avenue in Kitsilano, we are located blocks from the beach, on the main bus route to UBC, and only a quick trip across the bridge to downtown Vancouver. 4th Avenue has been a prime shopping area since the 60’s, with a variety of independent retailers, catering to both locals and tourists of all ages.

So when Country Beads opened its doors in October 1994, people welcomed us with enthusiasm, support and helpful suggestions! We listened, learned and are now thrilled to be celebrating our 23rd year of business! So thanks to all of our loyal customers and welcomed newcomers – it continues to be a wonderful ride!

Beading has proven its longevity, sustaining its popularity. Whether you choose to make a simple summer bracelet or a more complicated multi-layer, mixed material piece, all your supplies are available here. For this reason, we have become known as “the little store with lots of stuff”. We have always kept up with the latest in jewelry trends and fashions, trying to provide you with the newest, hot items before the trend passes as well as sourcing out unique pieces from around the world.
