5 Dayton Craft Stores You Must Visit


Heliotrope Art Studio and Pearl Shop – When you walk into Heliotrope’s bead store, it’s like magic – wall-to-wall beads in all colors, shapes and sizes as far as the eye can see. The store owner is very knowledgeable and can help you find exactly what you are looking for every time. Mr. Marbles, the store dog, can also help you find the right beads – well, at least the ones in the bottom row. FYI: Héliotrope is cash only. Follow Héliotrope on their Facebook page.

Busy Beaver Arts and Crafts – This local craft store has been around for a while and people love to stop by for every type of craft project.
