Response to Philadelphia Area Hobby Shops?

Main Line Hobbies is located in the Plymouth Meeting Mall, about 10 miles north of Philly. The mall is on Germantown Pike, just off the PA Turnpike at the Mid-County Interchange, where the Northeast Extension (I-476) meets the East-West route (I-276). Website is

Triple-A Hobbies was already mentioned. That's just a short drive across the river to Magnolia, NJ.

Millennium Hobbies/the Gundam Kitchen is also just across the river, in Blackwood, NJ. It's a great little shop, but as the name suggests, it focuses on Gundams, anime, and sci-fi as far as kits go. The owner is a good guy, and he hosts wargames, and build meet-ups. He has a decent selection of supplies and tools, too.

I belong to the Delaware Valley Scale Modelers, based in Philly, and in our newsletter, we list those three shops, as well as these:

BNB Hobby & Train Depot
10 West Camden Ave., Moorestown, NJ 08057
Ph: 856-235-9055

New Concept III
676 Stokes Road, Medford, NJ 08055
Ph: 609-953-0404

D & K Hobbies
116 Barclay Shopping Center, (Route 70 West), Cherry Hill, NJ 08034.
Ph: (856) 795-9005

Hobbymasters, Inc.
62 White Street, Red Bank, New Jersey 07701
Ph: 732-842-6020

Z & Z Hobbies, Inc.
101 Sloan Avenue, Mercerville, New Jersey 08619
Ph: (609) 586-2282

Despite the results we get in a web search, there really aren't any hobby shops around down there anymore, at least, not those catering to scale modelers. Allied Hobbies has closed, too, if I am not mistaken.

Hope that helps! And anyway, while you're here, you should visit the museums. Besides the historical sites and national landmarks, the new Museum of the American Revolution is worth a visit when you're in town.

Best regards,
The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.
