Featured Artist ~ Cigar Box Beads

Marilyn of Cigar Box Beads became a non-stop beadweaver when she purchased 3 vintage cigarboxes full of beads at a flea market---about 20 years ago. And yes, she’s still using those beads along with a 'few' more! What a wonderful beginning to this beautiful shop!

A retired Home Economics teacher, Marilyn explains that beadweaving is her “joy” along with other hand crafts – knitting, crocheting, sewing – and not to be forgotten, being with her twin granddaughters with whom she enjoys sharing her love for crafting.

In addition to enjoying the beautiful pieces you will find at Cigar Box Beads, stop by Marilyn’s newest shop, Such and Sort (from a family’s friend favorite phrase for “etcetera”) where you can find “a bit of everything- from vintage buttons to found items to collectibles to hand crafted artwork.”
