Welcome to Friends' Hobby!

An Old Fashioned Hobby Shop For The Entire Family!

Front Counter

HO scale cars, buildings, and dollhouse supplies

Welcome to Friends Olde Fashioned Hobbies! We are a fun, family oriented hobby shop, the kind where the staff are very knowledgeable of what we offer, and are hobbyists themselves. We offer service above and beyond the hobby shops that are too common these days; Sales people that know little about the product, try to get you in, sold, and out as quick as possible, and generally have become faceless entities.

So welcome to our online home, and feel free to stop by our shop at 8501 75th Street Ste. L, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. You'll feel right at home here!

We carry a large number of hobby items, including a great selection of model trains in N, HO, and 3-rail O scales, plastic car, ship, and airplane kits, dollhouse furniture (which very few mainstream hobby shops even think of anymore!), scratchbuilding supplies of wood, metal, and plastic, and also table gaming materials. We carry Bones and Reaper miniatures, Armorfast and HAT models, which are excellent for 1:72 scale wargaming, and much, much more. We also can help you find hard to locate supplies for your hobby projects, and even if we do not or cannot find them, we will be happy to direct you in the right direction!

We also handle repairs for N, HO, S, and O gauge trains, any make, any age. Our repairman has extensive experience with pre-WWII trains up to current production, and everything in between.

Plus we have a gaming club, and are restarting our model railroading club too. The gaming club is composed of actual RPG and table game fans who enjoy also the social aspects of being with fellow gamers. It is a great experience in camaraderie for gamers and those observing alike.


A Reminder-

We no longer accept credit cards for purchase or play. This is due to two things:

1. New IRS regulations attached to Obama's Affordable Healthcare Plan. These regulations allow the IRS to seize up to 35% of a credit card purchase for whatever reason they choose. In addition to normal card fees it drops our actual return to under what the cost of items are. If you go bankrupt they keep the money.

2. Thefts of parts of our machine and cost to go back on line, fees, paperwork, etc. If we go ahead with certain plans, we would have to reduce any discounts by 7% which would cover these costs.
