Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hobby, craft, and art supplies at Schaefer's Hobby Shop.
Awarded Best Craft Store in 2006 by the Riverfront Times, Schaefer's Hobby Shop's knowledgeable staff is dedicated to helping hopeful hobbyists and confident crafters sift through a vast selection of art, jewelry, and model vehicles.

Meanwhile, a miniature tarmac houses the Blue Angels jet launcher ($7.98) and gyro-powered Air Hawk attack helicopter ($6.29). Guests browsing through Schaefer's wide variety of jewels can foil heists by tripping up burglars with colorful beads and then spelling out their Miranda rights with 4.5–5.5 mm pewter alphabet letters ($0.79–$0.99).
Schaefer's also soothes tentative fliers with demos of helicopter models and grooms crafters-to-be in classes for bead stringing and knitting.
