Newcomers to Hillsboro looking for a hobby shop should head downtown and visit Hillsboro Hobbies.
This is a small store and the prices are a bit high. This is to be expected, however, in a shop that is still locally owned and not a Mart of one kind or another. There are a variety of things for hobbiest, including doll houses, models of all sorts, crafting supplies and scenery for train sets.
What impressed me the most was the owner who was working there. He gives the place a cozy, small town feel that makes you want to shop, even if you could order supplies online cheaper.
