We have one in Raymond, NH that I stop in once in a while. Lots of fabric, lots of hardware (for DH to look at). Neat store. Miss the one that used to be in Milford, NH.

Another store on this idea is Marden's. They are only in Maine, some, not all carry fabric and prices are wonderful.

I was in the Ben Franklin in Carrollton, Ohio just a few weeks ago. Love the creaky wooden floors. They have a little bit of everything. They have a generous craft/sewing section. I could spend hours there just looking.

There is one in Winterset Iowa, right down the street from Fon's and Porter.

Great road trip with my Mom to hit both places.

When I lived near Cleveland Ohio I use to shop at Ben Franklin all the time. I love those stores...
