Our History

     Founded in 1996 by Emmo Hein, Mid-South Hobbies has served as an epicenter for hobby items for the Mid-South. Having started out originally in the train business, the store has grown exponentially to encompass everything that can be found today.

Today, the store is owned by Mr. Hein's nephew and his wife, who are dedicated to carrying on the tradition of supporting hobbyists throughout the region as well as introducing the next generation of hobbyists to a world of possibilities.

With a true love for what they do, the owners and staff alike are very knowledgeable on the variety of hobbies and love connecting with both new and old customers over their shared interests. 

Buddy, the shop dog

Buddy, our 13-year-old Golden Retriever can often be found greeting customers at the shop. He loves to visit with new friends, keep an eye on the trains and chase after RC cars in the field.
