About Our Shop

Many have asked:

After 30 years of doing what I truly love I am breaking down the bricks and mortar, and closing the physical shop. There have been 4 shops over the last 30 years and all have been the way I remember hobby shops from my childhood. Stacked to the ceiling with everything that you could imagine, finding things you did not even knew existed, and every conceivable book, magazine, kit, tool, paint, supply, and advice on how to use them. I have had a good staff over the years with Sue, Trisha, and Mike, they were a part of the shop just as I was. I have made some friendships with my customers that I will cherish, and unfortunately have had many of them pass on over the years. I am going to continue selling on eBay, and have thousands of books and kits to list in my eBay shop, crmhobbies is the seller id. I am hoping to spend more time with my family, building models, and going to shows to participate instead of standing in front of a vendor table. Since CRM Trading started in 1983, forerunner of the shop, I have been doing shows and finding people hard to find items. On April 21, 1988 CRM Hobbies opened for the first time, and the rest is history, and I have been truly blessed. I want to thank all my customers, friends and family that have helped me, employees, and fate, which has allowed me to do what I love for the last 35 years. My email will not change so you will be able to contact me, if you are looking for something specific or need parts for your Grex Airbrush. Please check out the eBay shop and again, thank you all.
