Best Craft Store St. Louis 2006 - Schaefer's Hobby Shop
Art-supply stores are all well and good for Robert Rauschenberg wannabes, but what about those of us who just want to knit a chenille throw or mosaic a birdbath? Have no fear, li'l crafter, Schaefer's Hobby Shop is here! Need to bejewel a cell phone? Behold Schaefer's reserve of Swarovski crystals. Want to declare an allegiance to Jeff Smith? Invest in a button-making kit. Have a goth daughter? Doll parts are the perfect addition to angst-ridden adolescent artwork! With St. Louis' largest collection of semiprecious stones, an obscene amount of faux flowers and model planes, trains and automobiles, everyone from Aunt Caroline to Young Timmy can unbind those idle hands and find his or her inner Martha Stewart.
