This is a magical place!  Yone ("rice" in Japanese), a small shop just off Columbus, is San Francisco's oldest bead store.  It was founded in 1967 during the era of hippies, tie-dye shirts and flower power. 

If you are looking for unique beads, you may find what you need here!  "Different" appears to be the criterion used by the owner in his selection of beads.  You will find unique treasures in all prices ranges, made of every imaginable material, in this store. Yone SF should be your first stop if you are looking for vintage beads. 

Yone is moving into the Internet age with two web sites under development.  Its primary site will be at, with discontinued items going up for sale at
