I have a bead store which is surviving the downturn quite well. But, not without extra effort. I am open 7 days a week with one late evening. I also wholesale my jewelry though clothing stores and do online bead marketing through etsy.com. I believe women that do bead work do not find it to be a luxury. It is a creative endevour that endures although 'world travel' may be sacrificed in this economy. I believe we need our arts to keep sane ! Business wise i keep out of debt and buy less and let go of the hoarded bead stash that has been aquired through the last 20 years!
