About Hobby Depot 

480-968-1880

Over the last decade The Hobby Depot has become one of Arizona's premier hobby shops and is unique in it's dedication to hobbyists who are interested in taking their hobby and craft to the next level. Whether it is finding books and magazines on dozens of modeling topics, finding the latest and greatest kids, building, and detailing supplies, or those hard to find items that you need for your special project, you will find it here at The Hobby Depot. If it isn't already in stock, we can get it for you.


Located on Southern Avenue in Tempe, our recently expanded facility is well stocked with the things you need, plus has an impressive set of displays including finished models and an ongoing HO scale modular railroad layout designed to help you see for yourself how easy it is to build a beautiful and functional train layout. 

Please take a look around this new website of ours and come visit us at our store in Tempe, AZ.  Join our mailing list and let us know how we can help you better!
