On First Street Near Lincoln
We were shopping for some Christmas
presents in Port Angeles and dropped into the old Bead Tree store in
the newly restored Elks building. The Elks buildings is sort of our
local skyscraper and has recently recovered from damage from a fire a
year ago. The camera store was back along with a new Internet cafe.
There was also the bead store, but not the bead store we remembered.
The old bead store was a bit austere, for a bead store, that is. The
new place was lush, with bins and strands and boxes and tubes of beads
of all shapes, sizes, colors and levels of specular reflection. Udjat
has two rooms full of everything you might ever need for stringing
They also have a variety of belly dancing accessories. Belly dancing
has been getting quite fashionable, both as dance and as exercise. If
nothing else, it builds up the abdominal muscles, and you can work up a
sweat. We didn't investigate their belly dancing products in detail,
but they don't stock the DVDs. They do stock the decorative scarves and
some shawls, and you can design your own accessories with their full
line of beads.
