Lost Cities is what I would consider a beginner's bead store. You will find all of the tools, beads, and accessories that you need for just about any basic beading project that you can imagine. They have inexpensive beads, that can fit any budget, and expensive beads, that beginner's might not be able to afford right away, but they definitely have a large selection of beads for your basic beading needs. Unlike similar beading stores, this one doesn't carry a lot of unique, hard to find beads, and that can be frustrating if you have something specific in mind. If you are looking for a specific, rare type of bead, I would call ahead before making a trip to this store, as if they don't have it, and you are only looking for one type of bead, you might leave feeling disappointed. Their prices are cheaper than some of the expensive specialty stores. Their staff is friendly, warm, and welcoming. The staff has a limited knowledge of beads and beading projects, so if you have a "tough" question, they may not be the people to ask. The staff is wonderful about helping you find exactly what you are looking for, if you carry it, and they are rarely out of stock on the items that you need. There is ample parking, and it's a cozy little store, if they have what you are looking for!

PROS: Competitive, reasonable prices. Warm, welcoming staff. Ample parking.
CONS: Don't carry everything you would expect to find in a store of this type!

I was first drawn to this bead store for its alluring name. When I went to check out its inventory, I was definitely impressed. They stock anything from cheaper glass beads to very expensive gemstones, but everything they carry is beautiful. Prices are very reasonable, particularly on the startup wire working tools I picked up on my first day there.
