well, in beaumont there is a bead store called the bead barn--i used to work there--where you can buy beads or sit in the store and make jewelry.  when i used to work there it was actually in a little barn, but now it's on crow road, right behind the building with marshall's...kind of across the street from that old-fashioned looking church building...

hmm...there also used to be a store, i don't know if it's still there or not, called the piecemaker...they sell embroidery, needlework kind of things.  it's on calder near market basket and the logon cafe.

also, downtown there's a pretty good thrift shop, if you're into that kind of thing.  it's run by a church--can't remember which one, but it's called the treasure house and it's right as you're going into downtown, before you get to the ywca and the first baptist church.

then of course there's hobby lobby, michael's, joann, etc.  i'll try to think of others.

oh, i totally forgot manning's--it's more of an art/school supply store, but it's amazing.  they have several rows of different kinds/colors of pens, and paper where you can try them out.  plus all kinds of art supplies.

Hey i live in beaumont too. The classic craft stores are good too. Michael's and hobby lobby. But central has better, bigger hobby lobby. The Treasure House is the thrift shop that is ran by ST.MARKS. The goodwill store downtown is great, too. I bought a ton of vintage patterns there, never been used.Hancocks and we also have JOANNS fabric. Next to classic chevrolet and saturn.

Have you ever been to the Flea Market in Winnie (I-10 towards Houston)
Think it is the first weekend after the first Monday each month.   Lots of fun!

My parents introduced me to a place in Lufkin, TX called Paul Nerren's Junk Barn - on Hwy 59 between Lufkin and Nacogdoches (home to Stephen F. Austin U.) It's about 1.5 hours from Beaumont, but it would be worth the drive.  This place has just about everything and it's huge.  Every corner I turned I thought would be the end but the stuff kept going and going.  It is quite literally a junk yard but I was in heaven.  The man that works there (who I assumed was Paul Nerren) was kind of scary but I didn't let that get between me and the acres of treasures.  Street signs, license plates, doors, old tools, etc.  I could go on and on.  I plan to go back in my husband's truck - my little Mustang doesn't hold much.

Anyway, if anyone is in SE TX you may want to take a road trip.  If you make it out there stop and have lunch in Lufkin at a little place called Joe's Italian restaurant.  He's from Italy and the food is awesome and authentic.

I love junk yards. When we go to the beach for the weekend we like to stop in High island at KAHLA'S FRESH JUNK. They have everything. We to the Tram road Flea Market some too.In Beaumont.  I've always wanted to go to the Canton Flea Market. Maybe this spring.

another place to go - if your into junk shopping is....damn I think its Tram road. If your heading out of bmt towards lumberton its on the left just before you leave the bmt area ( i think).

I havent been back home for a few years. I still dont miss it though.

Oh, and you could always go check out the Art Studio for tons of amzing classes....diversify your craftiness.
