Celebrating 60!

Hi! Remember me? Yes, it's been some time since I've posted. I've been busy getting ready for our company's 60th Anniversary celebrations. We have something planned for Oahu, Kauai, Maui and the Big Island . All within the next 8 weeks! It's so exciting to be able to celebrate the fact that our company has been locally owned and operated for 60 years! WOW!

We're also getting ready for the next 60 years and we've been really getting our toes wet in the wonderful world of the internet. For Ben Franklin Crafts we have our website, you can sign-up for our e-mail newsletter, Craft Connections, we have a twitter handle @bfcrafts and we just started on Facebook.

Speaking of's funny because I quietly started a Joy of Crafting Facebook page and you smart crafters found me! Thanks for Liking me, I hope to start doing some fun stuff there, too. You can also follow me on  twitter @joyofcrafting.

So all this talk about the web...where is this leading, too? An ipad2 giveaway of course!

We want to make sure you can Like us and Follow us so we're going to give away an ipad2 to one Lucky winner at this Saturday's 60th celebration at our Mapunapuna store location!

Besides the ipad2, there's going to be TWO 60 Second Shopping Sprees and a bunch of other door prizes throughout the party.60 Second Showdowns and fun make-it and take-its and demos!

    I just got back from my trip yesterday; was worried that I wouldn't make the celebration. I'm so happy I can be there to help celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Ben Franklin Crafts.
    See you in a little while.

  8. 60 years ... wow! My mom first worked at the Kaimuki Ben Franklin about 50 years ago. I can still remember getting our Christmas trees there. When we moved to Kailua, she worked at the Enchanted Lake location and worked until retirement. A lot of "herstory" there.
