Only Models and modeling supplies. They have older and new kits. Yesterday I bought a Takom M 103A2 and the old Monogram 1/32 F3F biplane. Largest model shop I have been in in 30 years.
Prices are near MSRP but that means no shipping, and they stay in business. Worth the trip.
Yes, there is more than just these 2 isles. You will be there awhile.
Plus 1 on Skywaves -
On a trip to the Pacific Northwest a few years back I accidentally discovered this shop . Fortunate accident indeed . LOTS of old and rare kits - largely aircraft IIRC . Love a shop with kits piled floor to ceiling and they are few and far between these days .
Try not to be shot.

I know, it’s a Hobby Town, but this one is really good and has been owned by the same couple for a bunch of years. They have a large plastic kit aisle and all the supplies you could need. Highly recommended.
HobbyTown in Vegas was a good hobby shop. A lot of static plastic and supplies. It’s closed down now
Visalia Hobbies in Visalia, California has static plastic and supplies.
