About Us

Hobbies are Our Business

Maritime Hobbies and Crafts has been in the business since 1946.

Welcome to Maritime Hobbies & Crafts. We are Canada's oldest hobby shop. 

Established in 1946 on the corner of Agricola and Almon Streets in Halifax, 

Nova Scotia, we have moved to various locations over the years including 

Granville, Hollis and Barrington Streets. Today we can be found in a historic 

heritage property on Grafton Street near the corner of Spring Garden Road.

Count on Our Expertise

We are a source of information on many hobbies and interests.

Our staff have many decades of experience with the hobby and craft products that we carry. In addition, we offer a wide variety of hobby magazines, manufacturer's catalogues and other literature.

The Latest Products

We carry hobby paints from several manufacturers.

We carry many traditional hobby items including model trains, plastic model kits, wooden model boats and planes, radio control products, modelling materials, hobby tools, kites, jigsaw puzzles, and more.

If You Can't Make It Into The Shop?

Contact us with your order by phone, or below with your email address, and we will ship it to you by Canada Post or Maritime Bus if there is bus service in your area. For small parcels, the cost of shipping by bus is $12.00. We can take your credit card number over the phone.
