The new hobby shop, The Hobby Spot in Orlando can be found at 6013 East Colonial Drive, near the Home Depot and Semoran. The shop is a well stocked store for the Science Fiction and Fantasy enthusiast, graphic novel readers, as well as model building, remote control models and crafting supplies. They have a Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/HobbySpot and offer discounts if you "like" their page. They are also good about posting specials and sales to their Facebook followers.
The hobby shop is a great resource for metal stock, tools and vices for crafting many small pieces. Balsa wood, brass and steel bar stock are also used in making remote control models. The enamel and acrylic paints are also useful in many crafts.
They also offer many collectibles, figurines, books, videos and games. Everything from Angry Birds, Iron Man, Spiderman or Ninja Turtles, there is something to appeal to many of the Science Fiction age groups. Reminiscent of the old shop Enterprise, (now gone many years) with the bright displays and creative projects.
Their recent promotion the Spotty Box offered a large selection of plain brown boxes filled with random products for ten dollars. Each box was gaurenteed to have at least three things and be worth at least the ten dollars. One lucky prize winner even won a Bowflex!
