Our Story

Welcome to Ben Franklin Crafts!

of New Albany, Indiana

We are very proud to support the Local Businesses of our area! Did you know that we are a Local Business also? Ben Franklin Crafts is not a “chain” of stores. They are all independent. (Our store is owned and operated by the Smith families. They are originally from Milan, IN. They moved here and opened the store in 1990.) That is what makes our store and all other Ben Franklin Crafts stores so special and unique! There is not a Corporate Office telling us what to sell or a warehouse supplying us all with the exact same products. We offer a personal shopping experience that is geared to “our” customers!

When you shop with us…You shop Local!!

27 years of serving you and our community!

We want to thank all of you for your support and encourage you to continue supporting the many amazing Local Businesses of our area!
