I personally enjoy a hobby shop that has a strong variety of items they carry and if you are anything like me, you are going to love All Things Collectible. This week we are running a special promotion with All Things Collectible where you can get FREE passes to the 2012 Jordan Brand Classic with an Upper Deck purchase at the store. Talk to Will Hannah at the shop for more details. And here are a few more reasons why you should visit the shop straight from Will.
“Everyone has different reasons for opening a hobby shop, but I’ve found the core reasons are pretty much the same. Those being that you want to be able to make a living and provide for your family, but more than that, we do this because sports are our passion and love. I have been in the collectibles business since 1987 and have been able to grow my business over the years despite ups and downs in the economy. I started out setting up at local flea markets and shows in high school. After graduation I opened up my own brick and mortar store.
“I’m a little different than most shop owners in that I really love to rip open new boxes of cards. I collect anything from football, baseball, basketball, non-sports and even hockey. Most importantly for me is the chance to enjoy the hobby while spending time with my best employee; my dad. He worked a lot while I was growing up so we didn’t get to spend too much time together. Now we get to see each other every day while we share our love for collecting with each other and along with our loyal customers.
“At All Things Collectible, we carry a wide-range of products from all the major sports as well as fringe sports like racing and minor league products along with non-sports boxes. We also have the largest collection of gaming cards in the area with boxes and packs of the major trading card games (TCG’s) like Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! and more. If cards are not really your thing then we also have new and old comics along with a subscription service. Supplies to house all your valuable items can also be purchased here along with advice on which ones to use.
“We try to create a fun atmosphere were customers can stop by and open some packs or boxes and talk sports or gaming. We have a very diverse customer base and that makes the store a great place to visit because you get to see people having experiences with so many different types of products. We carry over 500 different boxes of sports, gaming and non-sports boxes currently in stock as well as loose packs from 1983 up to the present. There is always something to see at All Things Collectible so stop by and pay us a visit, especially if you want some great tickets to the JBC this weekend!”
