One of the best places to buy beads online if your local shop doesn't stock them is Fire Mountain Gems. I can highly recommend them from personal experience. But Fire Mountain isn't just a place to buy--it's a place to learn about beads. The shop has just posted a series of articles about seed beads. You can learn a bit about seed beads and the various types here.
You can also learn about their history in Europe and Japan. It's very interesting and gives me insight into the differences between the different types of beads we can order for needlepoint embellishment.
