Craft lovers will think they've died and gone to hobby heaven. – Background
The Golden Hobby Shop, which opened in 1971, is operated by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department as a nonprofit consignment shop for senior citizens' crafts. In 1981, it moved to its present location, a 125-year-old building that formerly housed The Third Street School. The store is run by department staff and volunteers, who help organize craft workshops, demonstrations and quilting bees.
