My name is Sandra J. Paluzzi and I am The Bead Peddler®. I started this business in September, 2000 and we're here to stay! This is my third start up. I have been running successful business since 1988. In addition to our website, we now do local bead shows. Our schedule is listed on our home page. My mom works with me and helps run the business.
Mom and I live together. When I first started the business, she was not sure it was a good idea. In fact, she thought it was a terrible idea. I ran the business by myself for a year. Then we became too busy for one person, and Mom came out of retirement to help me. She started out helping with the packing and now is active in all parts of the business except computer work. She leaves that all to me! We work hard, but we have fun while we work. We love the beads, but we love different beads. My favorite are the Chinese lampwork. Mom loves anything with a flower on it and the Czech fire polish My dog, Emmy Sue follows me around while I pull the orders - I guess she's part of the quality assurance program. The quality of our photos has improved with the addition of Kathy. She also works bead shows with me.
Istill run the business in my basement. But now I have rented warehouse facilities to hold the majority of our inventory. I make daily trips to storage to pick up our in-house shortages. I truly love working out of the house. It gives me a great deal of time flexibility. We answer the phones from 9 am to 9 pm Eastern Standard Time. Evenings you may catch us watching TV or reading a book while we wait for your phone calls!
