Best Hobby/Craft Shop 

Treasure Chest

Readers' Pick

The Treasure Chest’s shelves overflow with model airplanes, do-it-yourself rocket-making kits, Mickey Mouse baking pans, feathers for boa making, glitter, sketch pads, paint brushes, and miniature dining room sets ready to move into an unassembled doll house that sits on the floor. It’s easy to see why the sprawling hobby shop sparks inspiration. Treasure Chest owner Olive Seaholm attributes the store’s success to its varied inventory. She keeps a primary thing in mind before she adds anything to the shelves. “As long as it’s a little weird,” she says. Treasure Chest: 1612 Benton Ave.; 549-7992
