|Chess Shop Online
Top quality chess sets, many of which are themed (baseball, golf, Battle of Waterloo) and
command high prices. There are also some more affordable traditional wooden sets as well
as accessories such as boards and chess clocks. A neat store.
W Heffer & Sons
This is a slick store, offering a choice of 1.9 million books, along with a slightly
smaller collection of CD ROMs, videos, CDs, art & craft materials, toys & games,
stationery and maps.
The Kite Shop has a superb product range, broken down by kite type, along with accessories
and relevant books & videos. A shopping basket system would add convenience to an
otherwise excellent site.
Sew & So
Over 500 haberdashery and needlecraft products are available here, including Cross Stitch,
embroidery and Tapestry kits. Products include size information and are well illustrated.
4 mil Models
Toy soldiers and scale models are on sale here. Most of the models are
military-orientated. Products are well categorised, described and clearly pictured.
This hobby and model shop stocks over 16,000 items, including model railways, slot car
racing, rocket kits and radio control cars. Half the store supports a proper shopping
basket system, but sadly the other half doesn't have this feature. Still, products are
pictured and there's some superb use of Flash on the navigation menu. Lots of potential.
This store supplies basic educational hobby, technology and construction kits. Budding
engineers will enjoy the impressive kits, which include hovercraft, solar power units, and
motors to power a light bulb. Ideal for those bored with computer games.
Want to learn to paint, draw or sketch without leaving home? This store has over 100 video
titles which will teach you the skills required. Most products are pictured and
Cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, books and scissors are all available here to help
with your needlework requirements. Products cater for all abilities.
This store is a good source of craft materials. Whilst the range is extensive, the details
accompanying each product listing are scarce.
