(++) I love the people and atmoshphere. The shop is only 10 or 15 miles from my home, so I like to go in person to buy materials. I love the free patterns as then I can see what to try to make next, then I visit the shop to buy the materials and pick brains for help because I am a virtual beginner. They are always happy to help. As I have a medical condition which makes it difficult for me to leave the house, I tend to go on days when I have medical appointments and stock up on everything for about the next 3 months, usually spending about a 100 pounds a time. Sometimes I even manage to get to a workshop - the Christmas Decoration one I went to last year was great. I Love Spoilt Rotten.

Environmental & Ethical Policy

At Spoilt Rotten Beads we take environmental & ethical issues very seriously, out motto is "Good Beads, Doing Good"

We are constantly looking for greener ways to package our beads. Our Internet Orders are packaged in Jiffy Bubble Mailers made from paper sourced from sustainable forests, and the pretty pink carrier bags we give out in our shop are made from 100% recycled paper. We have a large recycling bin outside our shop into which we put all our paper and cardboard. If you order from our website you'll also see that we often send out your internet orders in reused cardboard boxes.

We do not sell any natural coral beads as this contributes to the destruction of the worlds beautiful coral reefs.

We donate a percentage of our profits every year to charity - in 2013 we donated £1000 to Oxfam's campaign to help all girls in Pakistan attend school. In 2011 we donated £1500 to War on Want who fight for the rights of workers in developing countries, in 2010 we donated £1000 to UNICEF's Child Protection fund and in 2009 we donated over £700 to charity, including £500 to War on Want and various other small amounts to local charities including local Pre-Schools and Cancer Charity Fund Raisers.

We also purchase a beautiful range of fair trade beads called Acholi Beads which support the Acholi Tribes Women in Uganda and mean that they are now able to send their children to school with the income that they earn from the production of the Acholi Beads.
