About

The Store
The Crystal Bead Bazaar opened its doors in 2003 when Joanne Yalch could not find cones. Since that auspicious beginning, beaders, wireworkers, and knitters from Pennsylvania and beyond sought supplies and inspiration at the store.

Fast forward to 2017, when Patricia (Trish) Kroboth and her family purchased the business from Joanne. “For me, it’s also about making the Crystal Bead Bazaar a haven of creativity and community for amateur and professional artisans,” says Trish. Joanne established the store believing that superior customer service was as important as a fabulous inventory. That legacy continues today.

Creativity and learning, sharing and community, and superior customer service and fabulous inventory are the hallmarks of the Crystal Bead Bazaar.
