This store is so much more than it's merchandise. They have a very artistic staff that decorates throughout the store - a great place to go for creative ideas for your own home! They also have frequent sales - and are very accommodating to the shopper in a hurry. (Personally, I can't get out of the store in less than an hour - so much to see!)

I have been a customer of BEN FRANKLIN for years. I've purchased from them when they were so small that you could virtually memorize all the merchandise they carried, up to the present day when they have such an array of craft items that a visit there for me is not unlike a child visiting a candy store!

And a candy store is a great analogy when you think of and see the wide array of beads and baubles they have on display to craft with! The beads run the gamut from simple plastic pony beads to the more expensive hand blown ones, not to forget beautiful Chech beads of all colors and designs.

And their merchandise doesn't stop with beads......they have supplies for painting, sewing, quilting, embroidery, drawing, leathercraft and much more. They even have a huge selection of scrap booking items for those "scrapbookers" out there......too many to even think about listing I am afraid!

The next time you are in Sycamore mall, visit BEN FRANKLIN and wander around. I'll bet you can't walk out without buying SOMETHING....most people can't....happy shopping!

PROS: ...huge selection of craft items
CONS: ....too many to choose from.....

Good selection of beads in packages and loose. The loose beads tend to be more pricey than the pre-packaged ones.

Lots of other supplies available in the store: scrapbooking, yarn, stamping, silk floral, decorations, framing and more.
