About

A note from Charlene and Dan:

We’re the owners of Caravan Beads of Chicago, a retail bead store on Chicago’s north side. When we opened the store in 1994 it was part of a dream come true for us. Since we’ve opened, our selection of beads has grown significantly. In fact, we grew so much we had to move to a bigger store. Fortunately, it was right across the street. We tripled our retail space and added separate classrooms. Our inventory has grown to include over one million different types of beads, including seed beads, Czech glass, art glass, semi-precious, castings, ethnic, Swarovski crystals, Bali and Thai silver….and the list goes on!

We are expanding the business, and last summer we began Beads To Go, our shop on-line! For those of you who just can’t make it into the store, now you can still get all the pretty beads!


But, for those of you who can stop in…..come by and say hello to all the friendly faces. We’re full of great ideas and the staff is extremely knowledgeable.


Thanks again for checking us out. Happy Beading!
