Hi! I'm travelling to Nashville and Atlanta this Saturday for a week. Can anyone recommend any hobby shops in the general area. I'm willing to drive a bit. I don't get a chance to buy stuff from the US very often. (from Canada,eh!) Thanks for any advice!
Hobby Shops...Nashville? Atlanta?

In Nashville there are none, but right outside of Nashville in a town called Murfreesboro there is a decent HobbyTown USA.
As far as I know Atlanta doesn't have any hobby shops for models, but some wheres outside of Atlanta in a place called Kennesaw there is a HUGE HobbyTown USA.

The Nashville area Hobbytown USA is here:

There are 3 Atlanta Metro area stores:

Use a map app to find them.
Just use Google to find any other area stores, or chains like Hobby Lobby, and what they offer.

There's also a Hobby Lobby within 100 yards of the Kennesaw Hobbytown mentioned above. The Kennesaw locations are a few miles north of the Atlanta city area, just off of I-75 and I-575, very easy to find. There is also a Michael's in the same area.

JMTCW... but I think that the HobbyTown @ Duluth is the better of all of them although it is not the largest. Very friendly staff and fairly well stocked for a small store! Wish you could have visited back in the day when Auto Motif was in business! Now that was a Great Shop! and for what its worth there is a small shop in Blue Ridge Ga that is pretty good. Sorry I cant remember the name of it right now!

Thanks for the advice, everyone. I'll try them out. Too bad about Automotif...it sounds perfect...unfortunately hobby shops seem to be a dying breed everywhere. Cheers!
