There is nothing that our city loves more than our hobbies. Everyone has a project that they are working on, something they collect or a sport they play. All of these hobbies are made possible by the wide variety of locally owned hobby shops that exist within our city. Here are just a few of the best hobby shops Lynchburg has to offer.
Speakertree, located on Jefferson Street, features a large selection of vinyl, cassettes and CDs. In addition to selling these musical formats, their space also hosts live events and concerts. Pro tip: pick up one of their rewards cards to save on a future visit!
On Main Street, you can find Scene3, a shop that holds a variety of skateboard and biking gear. The shop also is home to products made out of recycled skateboard decks. Bonus, if you return a broken board that was purchased from Scene3 back to the store, they will give you a $5 credit toward a new one.
