"This is not your ordinary bead store. Island Cove is a magical shop where you can find beautiful jewelry nestled among exquisite paintings, cards, and other works by local artists.They carry unique beads, stones, and yes, basic beading supplies as well. I made quite a dent in my my holiday shopping yesterday, and plan on being a regular customer. Can’t wait to take one of their classes in the New Year! Check it out, you won’t regret it.” S.C.

“If you have never taken the time to stop by Island Cove, you have
missed a treat. They have beads for us ‘beaders’ but there's so much more. You are in for a great shopping experience.” L.C.

“This store ROCKS! I love everything. I went back today to get another ribbon scarf. I get so many compliments on the pink one and it goes with so many things that I just had to get a red one!”

“My sister, my niece, and two of her friends had an amazing time this afternoon being creative and designing necklaces and bracelets. What a great find this shop is – great sense of community."
