Just like for everyone, 2020 was CRAZY! In April, I lost my job ( like so many did ) due to pandemic and I felt so lost. I was applying to jobs and no one was calling me back. I was in the house 24/7, cooking banana bread and me & Netflix’s started to become real good friends !
Then one day I was online searching for a boutique that sold waist beads. All the sites were the same. Same colors, same patterns, nothing unique. That’s when I said to myself “You can make your own!” The next day I went to Michaels craft store and made myself a few. I loved the way they came out and surprisingly found the process of making them relaxing. So I decided to make an Instagram page displaying my pieces and the rest is history from there.
Mind Your Beads was created!
I started doing so well on Instagram with the waist beads, I branched out and started making bracelets, necklaces and earrings!
Next thing I know, my mom and I are doing local pop ups but we decided to add plants to the mix. (Because who doesn’t love plants😌)That’s when Mind Your Beads & Seeds was born!
We received so much support and great feedback from doing our pop up that we decided that it was time to open up Mind Your Beads & Seeds gift garden!
That leads us to now.... We actually did it! We got our gift garden and I’m so excited to share this journey with everyone.
We are closing our Montclair location. We will be close for the summer and re-opening this fall in Princeton, New Jersey.
Address to be announced soon.
Our last day at the Montclair location is June 19th.
We hope to see you at our new location. Have a great summer!
