Loved to go there and search through their candy isle...
Ben Franklin stores. I just discovered last year, there is still a Ben Franklin in Grand Marais, MN. It had a little of everything. Love this store!

.Used to be one of these on First Street in Menominee, next to the drug store. I spent my allowance here almost every Saturday
Ben Franklin Store...When I was 5 I loved going there to look at all the "treasures" they had. I'm sure my grandchildren will say the same thing about Everything's a Dollar. Those nickle and dime days are gone forever.
Viewmaster Slides- imagine the fun of having all these to add in various ways to your smash books, etc!
Forget about it Coke, or any other soda pop. I'd take a glass of Nestle's Quick over most any other drink any day of the week during my childhood, and usually did!
I wish they still made these in my size! I lived in my Wonder Woman and C-3PO Underoos when I was a kid.
Corner market and green stamps..I REMEMBER THE SCREEN DOORS ON STORES AND IT FLAPPING CLOSED BEHIND YOU!
These were my FAV! I tried describing them to Tom, but I think he thought I was crazy.
Kissing Potion I had these... forgot all about them til I saw them on someone else's board!
These definitely bring back memories. Our Nana always had these in her purse!

Ah, beads! So fun... So pretty... Until you stick one up your nose and have to go to the hospital to have it removed.
