Welcome To Beadman Enterprises!

We are a family owned and operated bead business that prides itself on fast, friendly, and personal service. Over the years we have built up a very unique inventory through the purchase of one-of-a-kind items, large job lots, and bulk inventory from going-out-of-business sales. We have also directly imported a great deal of our inventory, including our Japanese Toho & Miyuki beads.

 

Additionally, we have a companion web site called Skiyou Treasures (www.skiyoutreasures.com), which deals in items not available on Beadman Enterprises.  Between the two web sites, we have plenty of inventory and a wide variety of products which range from new and new old stock to vintage, antique, collectible, and retro stock.

 

So please...be sure to check out our very eclectic and unusual blend of newer, older, hard to find, and out of the ordinary items and let us know how we can best serve your beading needs!

FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1968.

[field_address_aboutus-city]

Hi! We're Jan and Leo Smith and together we own and operate Beadman Enterprises, a second-generation family business established in 1968. Back in 1968, it was a combination Native American handicrafts, jewelry and beads, and all around "curiosity" store called the Hobby Hunting Grounds located in Anacortes, Washington. Owned by my parents, Ken and Doris Howell, it operated on evenings, weekends, and during the summers. For five years, I helped manage the store and accompanied Ken and Doris on various buying trips. It was a fun time for me and I learned a lot about the family business. But after five years, I had no interest in permanently settling down to small town living or the family business. So I eventually moved to the greater Seattle area where I was extremely blessed to meet and later marry Leo. We bought a house in Edmonds, raised a family, and both worked full-time. Now flash forward to mid-1994 and surprise, surprise...I'm back to small town living, the family business, and finding myself loving every minute of it. And even more so, flash forward to the present and it's hard to imagine that Leo and I have continued on with this family business for over twenty two years now! And here's the rest of the story...
