Oakridge Hobbies and Toys is a great store, very reminiscent of the all-purpose toy and hobby stores of the '60s and '70s. Lots of models, children's toys, doll house and miniature goods, a decent selection of model trains, and lots of scratchbuilding supplies. The staff is on the young side, but are very helpful and (in one case) extremely knowledgeable about modelling paints and masking techniques. If you love Playmobil (or if you have a little relative who does), this place is heaven. I try to support local hobby stores as much as I can, and Oakridge Hobbies is a great place to check out. It has a great selection of models for a retail store, including high-quality Hasegawa military kits. Apparently Oakridge Hobby is also the go-to place for wargaming miniature modellers -- lots of intriguing Gundam and Warhammer products which aren't my thing, but I am very glad that the local community has this resource so close. And of course the place has a great selection of R/C models and slot cars -- R/C is taken VERY SERIOUSLY here and -- again -- were I into R/C I would be very excited to have Oakridge Hobbies so close.
