Based in Surrey, the Old Bicycle Shop is a mail order company which specialises in hard to find vintage beads from 1900-1980, vintage metal pieces, Claspgarten clasps, Czech charlottes and a wide selection of modern Czech faceted beads. The new and old beads complement each other beautifully.

To make it easier to find what you are looking for, the vintage beads are grouped by the decade they were made. New items are added regularly and some beads, particularly the vintage beads, are very limited in numbers so make sure you come back soon to see what else is in stock.
