What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My husband and I have enjoyed all kinds of hobbies our whole lives, and we started planning to open our own store 10 years ago. After traveling the country for the last seven years and visiting hobby stores in every city we went to, we decided it was time to stay put for a while and open our own store.
What do you love most about your job?
I get to see the look on a customer’s face when they come in our store and find something they either haven’t seen in years, or something they’ve never seen before. I also get to find new products for our customers to enjoy and try out before anyone else!
