Dependable, local source of craft materials? On St. Croix?

Hi all,

Among other things, I teach architectural design. This involves CAD and scale model design. I (my students) use matboard and balsa/bass wood. Is there a reliable craft/hobby store that sells these things? Is there a Michaels or something similar on St. Croix?
