Tom Thumb staff really know their products. Forget the chain stores where the staff don't know a needle threader from a model tweezers. If you have a project and don't know quite how to go about it, or just have some free time to find a new hobby or love - visit Tom Thumb.

I've been here a few times to pick up various items, and each time remarked to myself how much stuff they have. The store is so packed it can even be hard to move around, with displays and stacks of boxes everywhere. It's kind of messy, but the staff will help you find what you need, whether it's for model toys, motors, kits, etc. This can be fun if you like browsing, if you need a particular component it could take some time to find, but again, just ask the staff.

Good location in Evanston, and not many others places in the area to get some of this stuff. You won't find *everything*, some things you might have to go online for, but if you're into hobby crafts, check it out.

PROS: very big selection
CONS: not too organized

This craft store definitely has what you need for that project...and a whole lot more. The downside? It's so full of stuff that it gets really messy in there. Be prepared to climb over boxes crowding the aisles with new arrivals. Staff is ho-hum, but there's probably nowhere else locally that has such a big selection. Just be prepared to spend some time looking for what you need.

PROS: every craft supply you could want
CONS: messy store and indifferent help
