Supplier Of The Month: Indian Dreams Trading Post

Molly Kubista's Ledger Painted and Beaded Hide 

At our last monthly meeting, one of our members inquired as to where I purchase my Delicas. I have done a bit of research for on-line sources of Delica beads and would like to recommend this company.

The owner is one of my a cyber-friends. I do believe that it will difficult to find a better place for Delicas. Since the quality of all Delicas are the same, price becomes  the major factor for me.   The prices from Indian Dreams Trading Post are less than most other suppliers that I have found.

Indian Dreams Trading Post  is located in Terrebonne, Oregon. The website is www.indiandreamstrading.com/servlet/StoreFront .

In addition to this website, they also have an Etsy store. If you are member of Etsy and prefer to buy there, the website address for that location is www.turquoisehorse.etsy.com.

Indian Dreams Trading Post is a terrific source for Delica beads (they stock over 1200 colors), Seed Beads, Triangle Beads, Gem Stone Beads, Drop Beads, Swarovski Crystal, Czech Beads, Pressed Glass Beads, Needles , Thread and beading supplies.

If you can’t find what you are looking, for just e-mail or phone them and they will do their best to help you!
Mailing Address is: Po Box 66 Terrebonne Or 97760
Order Phone Line # 541-504-7669
E-mail Address: sales@indiandreamstrading.com

While the usual purchase unit for Delica’s is 10 gm tubes, if you are doing a large project, they sell many colors in 50 gram lots.  I have an order ready to purchase  several beads that I use often in the 50 gram units. I will realize considerable savings by doing so and won’t be running out as often.

This is a quote from the owner: “We have been selling beads for 27 years. Once you buy a bead , its all over. You can never get to many.

The store also promotes the work of Molly Kubista.  Molly does museum quality beadwork combined with Ledger art painting on hides as well as other beadwork.  The photograph  at the top of this post is a sample of her work. If you would like to see more of her work, go to:
www.mollymanyhorses.etsy.com   It will be a real treat for you!

I hope you will check out this supplier for your beading needs.  Happy Beading!
