I have done business with Mike Bobe and his crew for more than three years and I have found them to be helpful and knowledgeable about the items they sell. Their prices are generally reasonable and their operating hours should allow any model builder or war gamer a chance to visit their store at its new location in the Pensacola... More

This place has a little something for everyone. Some of the games in here I have never seen or heard of, which is great! Price are average/moderate for a hobby store. It is definitely worth going and looking:)

Bobe's has been around for a while in Pensacola. If you need anything in the hobby arena if they don't have it they can help you find it. Trains, planes, automobiles...and a few novelty items for fun. There is a lot of collector's fun toys here.

Friendly helpful staff with a great selection. It almost has too many items for the space. If you as looking for something all you have to do is ask as they know their stock. Was looking for a gift for a great nephew and they were very helpful. I would go there again.

If you are into crafts, this is the place to go! Mrs Bobe taught me art lessons, how to macreme -(you can tell how long ago that was!) Then I got into gourd carving - went to Bobe's for my supplies. If you are into trains, planes, with or without motors - go to Bobe's. The staff is most helpful.
