Auntie's Beads Direct has a new website with many new tools and features that we're excited to tell you about.  While change can certainly be scary, we are thrilled as a hockey player hoisting the Stanley Cup to be playing with all the new bells and whistles!  

While many of them probably already caught your eye (Hello, shiny new website!), there are some new tweaks and additions that are a bit behind-the-scenes that you'll want to make sure you're aware of.  In the days ahead, we will be highlighting some of our favorite new features that will make your shopping experience even more fun and efficient.

Yesterday, we spotlighted our new Currency Converter.  Today, we wanted to shine a light on a tool that's going to really enhance the way you shop for beads.  We present to Collection Filtering!

Collection Filters

As beaders, we are very familiar with the thought, "Oh my gosh, I LOVE that bead!  But do they have it in a matte finish?  Oh, and this is too small.  Of course, I'll need it in red..."  Been there?  We thought so. It's why we are thrilled to have a brand new set of filters on every collection we have.  

You can now sort through the beads you're shopping for by color, shape & size and by finish, cut or type.  And the real beauty is, you can do these all at the same time to really refine what you're searching for!  Gone are the days of wondering whether or not the treasured bead you just discovered also comes in a semi-frosted finish. 

Now you're only a few clicks away from finding precisely what you want!

Try the new Collection filters out and be sure to let us know how you like it and if there are other options you'd like to see by filter.

Check back tomorrow as we continue to showcase more fabulous features of the new Auntie's Beads Direct website!
