Spotlight Hobbies


Arcade Hobbies was awesome. They had stuff going back to Revell and Monogram flatboxes and annual back to 1960 at box price. In about 74 I filled my 66 Mustang up to the point I could barely move the shifter, then went back around 6 weeks later and did the same. There was

another small shop down Magnolia close to Arlington that seemed to be able to get everything Jo-Han. I spend around $200 one weekend there. Those were the days that about every other Sunday I would just take off in a random direction from Anaheim checking sporting goods stores, hobby shops, bicycle shops, old drug stores, etc. When I first moved into downtown Anaheim in 1970 there were 3 hobby shops plus a Fed Mart in a couple of miles.
