About Us!





Ben Franklin Crafts & Frames opened it’s doors in October, 1973. Owned and operated by a local family this store has seen a few changes over the years. In the beginning it was a good ol’ fashioned variety store and carried everything from transistor radios, flashlights, and kitchen cleaning supplies to hamsters, ladies undergarments and homemade fudge! Not at all what you will find today. Now, it’s all about “All Things Crafty”, Home Decorating, Accessories, Gifts and Custom Framing.
