From the wide range of tools (would you like the el cheapo or the "Lexus" of metal and wire cutting tools) to the wide selection of Swarovski crystals in any color you can think of, I was more than overwhelmed with how to spend my Valentine's Day money (duh, I rather bead on Feb 14th...) The sales staff is very knowledgeable, ranging from rather nice to super nice as far as assisting you. I've seen them really go out of their way for people.
