Bead and handicraft store in Beja, Portugal

Beadshop in Beja,  Alentejo, Portugal

While on our way to Morocco, we like to stay at the campsite in Beja, Portugal. Not only because it’s a very decent campsite for only a couple of euro and within walking distance of supermarkets. No, for me the most important reason is the bead and handicraft store.

The bead and handicraft store with the somewhat difficult name “As mil e uma pedras” is a lovely store.

They sell a great variety of beads, leather cord in all sizes and colors, findings and other handicraft items like paint, felt and wooden objects to decorate.

The owners are very kind and helpful and speak a little bit of English. You can take workshops too, but they are in Portuguese.

They have a web shop, which is part in English, part in Portuguese,
If you’re not living in Portugal they advise to call or email first.



Today, I arrived in Faro, Portugal and drove to Beja.
I have been trying to find the address for your bead shop, but cannot find anything.
I am here until 11 am tomorrow (Thursday) morning and will turn be leaving for Ä–vora.
