About the Outlet & Discounts

Our Bead and Craft Outlet is open to everyone! 

There are no minimums – spend $1 or $100.

Our Outlet is attached to our large wholesale-only warehouse facility.  When we have items that are no longer in our wholesale catalog, are end of lines, vintage or clearance priced they end up in the Outlet.  This allows us to reinvest in new products.

Expect to save 50% and more on what you might spend at a regular retail store.  Therefore, we are in fact, always on sale!

Please read our store policy page explaining when discounts can not be applied to sales items.

Outlet Membership For All

Everyone can become a member of the Outlet. It is FREE and will give you an additional 10% off when you shop.  Sign up in the store.

Seniors over 55 years of age receive an additional 5% discount on Thursday in the Outlet.

The teacher’s discount for Ontario College of Teacher (OCT) members is now extended to include the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO) membership.

Every day is teacher/educators day in the Outlet.  We wanted to make it simple and easy for these two groups to shop any time during regular business hours.

OCT and AECEO members will automatically receive an additional 5% discount in the Outlet.  You already receive an additional 10% if you are an existing Outlet Member (so 15% all together.) Membership is free.

All you need to do is show your membership card to our staff and we will affix our permanent discount sticker on your discount card.  It’s that easy.

If you show a student card from a recognized post secondary institution we will take an additional 15% off your regular Outlet store purchases.*  Be sure to mention that you are a student prior to check out to our in store personnel.

*Students will be asked to sign up for our free membership card entitling them to a 10% discount every time they visit our Outlet.  Showing this card along with the post-secondary I.D. will give them the 15% discount.

**Discount does not apply when we have storewide discount days or on monthly-advertised special sale items already discounted more than 25%.


With over 6,000 feet of space, our new Outlet is great for craft and beading bargain hunters, and has virtually anything needed by jewelry makers, teachers, rosary makers, designers, costumes or for anyone working with children.

We are well known for our dedication to providing unique and beautiful rosary making supplies. The native beading and dream catcher supplies have expanded. Costume-making supplies, appliqués and feathers are now merchandised in a major aisle. The choices for glass, semi precious and one of kind beads are beyond compare.

We are constantly adding to our shelves and new items are added weekly.  There are thousands of items to choose from but keep in mind they change or sell out, so you may not find them on a second visit.

Over the years we have even purchased the inventory of other wholesalers who have closed and added these special and often vintage items to the Outlet shelves.

If you have never been to the Outlet set-aside some time and visit soon.  If you have not visited recently allow me to say, you have no idea what you have been missing!

In closing let me you remind you to fill out your free membership card when you visit, as it will entitle you to an additional 10% off.  Also, visit and like our Facebook page for special events and surprise sales!
