Golden Hobby Gift Shop
The Golden Hobby Gift Shop is operated by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department as a non-profit consignment shop for handcrafted items created by senior citizens throughout Central Ohio. You'll find unique gift items, home and seasonal decor, as well as wearables. Since 1971, more than 5,000 members have sold items through the Shop.
The Golden Hobby Gift Shop opened its present location at 630 South Third Street in German Village on September 1, 1981. Formerly the Third Street School, the 150+ year old building was purchased and renovated by the City of Columbus to provide the Golden Hobby Gift Shop ample area for sales, displays and other special events.
The most valuable asset is our staff of volunteers who give their time and effort to making the Golden Hobby Gift Shop a great success.
Anyone age 50+ living in Franklin or one of the contiguous counties may become a consignor of the Golden Hobby Gift Shop by making an appointment at (614) 645-8329. All items submitted for consignment MUST be handcrafted by the person joining the shop.
