Golden Hobby Shop German Village

Ok…. if I have your attention let me explain more about the Golden Hobby Shop in German Village, 630 S. 3rd Street.  It’s operated by the Columbus Recreation and Parks department as a non-profit consignment shop for senior citizens’ handcrafted items.

Now, I have no need for American Girl stuff but I was there with several “mom authorities” and they have lots of cute outfits for more than 1/2 the price of the American Girl store and they also have wooden desks, tables, and beds upstairs for the dolls. They are having an American Girl Fashion show April 26th and May 3rd.  You can call 645-8329 for details.

The also have a lot of Buckeye jewlery and gifts and fun hats and scarves.  It’s worth a stop after having breakfast on a Saturday morning at one of the many German Village restaurants and I bet it’s really fun around the Christmas holiday.

Rumor has it that they almost had to close down because of the Parks and rec cutbacks but were able to raise their own funding to stay in business.

They don’t have a website but check out the reviews on
