Heya...I have not personally been to these, but have seen suggestions in response to this question on my mom's message board at:

Cinderella's in F-sted
Frame up

I hope this helps!

How about St Thomas? I'm specifically looking for jewelry-making supplies. Have been buying off eBay but need something specific in a hurry!

That sounds like Frame Up. It's in the same strip of stores as NR Electric.

Hardware and paint stores may also have basic stuff that you want.

@ Old Tart, I don't think we have any specfic craft making supply store on island.

You can try looking around Cash & Carry and/or Island Fair in Four Winds.
Office Max might have something. Doubt it.

In town, maybe Fabrics in Motion, L & C Milliner or Las Americas stores. I would call before making the trip, if you are not in the area.

I think you are going to have to continue buying online sad smiley

I'm sure you're right. There used to be one in town which closed down years ago. I rarely go to shop in town and just wondered if something had popped up there in recent years ...

@ LotsToLearn try some of the stores I suggested to OldTart except for the ones in town.
Office Max & Kmart might be your best bet, but still try Island Fair & Cash & Carry. They are all in the same vicinity.
