Boutiques to Explore in Arlington - Joy of Beading bead store.
Manushka Antonov began beading as a hobby. When the beads started to spread throughout the Antonov house, Manushka and her husband Dimitar decided to open a shop, which they called the Joy of Beading. Joy of Beading carries beads from all over the world, including Europe and South America. Individuals of all ages can take beading classes. Bead lovers can also have beading parties for occasions like birthdays and weddings. "We are doing it for the community and for us," said Dimitar. The colorful store has a quiet, therapeutic atmosphere. Dimitar said one customer told him, "When I bead I forget everything." Dimitar hopes all customers have similar experiences. "We want people to feel the joy of beading," he said.
