The Five And Dime Store Near Cincinnati That’s A Lovely Trip Back In Time

As sad as it may be, many of the classic mom and pop shops from our childhood are no longer around. Those places we used to visit with our grandparents, who had likely visited them as a child as well, just haven’t been able to survive in modern society. Thankfully, there are a still few nods to our past around town, and one of them is just a short drive away in Bethel. Ben Franklin is a craft store and five and dime near Cincinnati that is still cherished by many and is a lovely trip back in time.
